Feel Like a Ten. Finding Your Business Purpose
Google made headlines when they announced ‘don’t be evil’ as their company’s purpose. Making a truly and deeply meaningful purpose can mean the difference from continued success and abject failure. This presentation draws on Kristen’s quest to find a deep purpose in what’s perceived as a shallow business (the spa industry). She shows how values can activate and engage staff, while providing a boost to company culture. Attendees will learn the key considerations and practical steps to discover purpose, determine meaningful values, and roll out programs to help build a healthy workplace culture.
Kicking Ass & Taking Names as a Female Entrepreneur
Young women are too infrequently encouraged to consider ‘entrepreneur’ as a viable career option. This presentation aims to inspire, drawing examples from the life of a successful entrepreneur along with some historical perspective of Canadian female business icons. Kristen examines the steps, considerations and decisions required to move from living with your ‘Plan B’ to enjoying life on your own terms, i.e. ‘Plan A.’ Attendees will learn a framework to launch and scale up a business including branding, planning, and strategy considerations, as well as reflections on franchising as a business model.
Women Who Work / Life Integrate
Women are often told on the one hand that work-life balance & family time is important, and on the other that workplaces have a glass ceiling.

Attendees will learn principles of work-life integration versus work-life balance, tips for making life more efficient while maintaining a fast-paced business.
