We make valuable connections with people and business owners in our neighbourhoods everyday. Every time we go to our favourite local coffee shop or buy from a local artist, we’re making connections with not only these entrepreneurs but also the brands they’ve built. We grow together and are influenced by the needs of one another, starting and creating new trends and buying habits.
Working with and listening to your neighbourhood is not only good business, but it also ensures your brand endures over time and has a lasting impact on the community’s social fabric. Join us and our panel of local entrepreneurs, artists, and brand experts to learn how to leverage your community connections and stay true to your brand while growing as a business.
