If you live in a small community, everything is smaller… there’s a smaller pool of investors, a smaller pool of talent, and a smaller number of job opportunities. Or is there?
What if what you believed about your community was wrong? What if you could 10x the economy of your local community? And what if you could 10x your 10x?
On September 27, 2018 join us at coLab as we kickoff our 7th season. Join us for an evening discussion about the power of community and collaboration when mixed with entrepreneurship. We’ll talk about ideas, share inspiration, and stories about collaboration in action.
Harvard Business Review has many great articles on collaboration and the advantages of collaboration versus trying to keep as much business within a business, taking on a project where there is no expertise, risking not providing value to a client and weakening the local economy. Their article Collaborative Advantage: The Art of Alliances does a great job of describing the advantages of collaboration and alliances and some of the pitfalls to watch for. It evens describes how 2 leading agencies collaborate to keep a key client and expand their respective markets. We need to be hearing more stories like this in our community.
Strategic consultant Chris Gliddon has supported a variety of businesses with their product, storytelling, and community strategies. After eight years in management at Disney, Chris co-founded his own company, Nicely Said, with a mission to support entrepreneurs with the growth of their small to medium sized businesses. Chris was the first official “community manager” for Club Penguin, accountable for fostering relationship between its sizeable 350 million user global audience. In 2015, he started the Kelowna Slack channel, which has become a virtual private ‘switchboard” for over 1,200 people in the vibrant Okanagan tech community.
This is a free event open to anyone working in marketing and graphic design. Note the new time and location. It’s on September 27th 2018, 7pm to 9pm at the newly renovated coLab, 205-1405 St Paul St., Kelowna, BC.
