Speaking + Events
Yes, I would love to share my story at your event
But as I coach immigrants who want to open their businesses, I have realized two things:
a) OUR story matters
b) accents make us unique – what matters is the message.
The only way you grow is by mastering the uncomfortable, right?

Jan 14, 2020
This seminar is designed for any newcomer who has thought about opening a business in Ottawa, but doesn’t know what steps to take or who to talk to locally in order to make that dream a reality.
You will come out of this seminar with a general idea of what to do to take your first step; you will learn about financial programs available and will walk out with a list of available resources to get you started.
