The Chamber Views 6

November was busy as a beaver.  Packed full of incredible Let’s Get Down to Business Podcast guests and a prestigious event building relationships whilst learning with understanding about The First Nations Business Forum. It was a privilege to be a sponsor of such an important and informative event! The Nation2Nation conference, organised by Lisa Mueller - Founder of Nation2Nation, strives to start from a First Nations' perspective on Economic Development and to bring together First Nations, Industry and Government to engage in dialogue about economic development and to do business with First Nations. Their mission is to have a vibrant and sustainable future for First Nations in Northwest B.C. The conference brought together various industry leaders, stakeholders and even top government officials. This was the first of its kind for me to attend and a true experience I could learn and understand more of. Bringing the business community together in such a powerful, positive way rendered great opportunities for networking, learning and relationship building! 

This last month we had the privilege of speaking with Dawn Blake and Janet Song Cornett-Ching at Hecate Strait Employment Development Society. Their aim is to be an all-in-one place for individuals seeking employment support! The goal is to get employers and job seekers matched! Building relationships with employers for them to work with them for employers to get the quality staff!

Veronika Stewart from the City of Prince Rupert was another guest on the show. She truly personified the City of Prince Rupert with her vibrant way of sharing all information. Creating network opportunities for the local Business Community whilst working jointly with community partners to achieve shared objectives where possible is what our City is all about!

Our last guest for November was Christ Armstrong from the Lester Centre of the Arts. Listen as he captivates us with stories from the past, how the Lester Centre got its name and even some interesting facts about his performing experiences on stage. This was one of the most memorable interviews I have done, be sure to listen!
