Last month, I met a lovely young women named Lydia at the Yoga studio where she worked part time while attending UBC’s Sauder School of Business. When Lydia approached me about participating in this event, I had no idea what to expect. I decided to be an exhibitor at Beyond Pink’s Connect Trade Show purely because Lydia was so passionate about this event and I really liked the idea of telling my story to other young women and give them the inspiration to follow their passion.
Once I arrived, I was so impressed at the organization, the table setup and the immediate warmness I felt from all the other exhibitors and participants.
There was so much going on, live twittering and blogging, very interesting and ambitious young volunteers making sure everything was going smoothly and cool neighbours in the tables around me to chat with.
For everybody who I didn’t get a chance to chat and share my story with, one of Beyond Pink’s awesome organizers helped me to film a chat I had with Claudine Lam of Sales Partners Worldwide.
I am looking forward to participating next year and I welcome everyone participating and attending to share YOUR story with me. I can’t wait to see your comments and if you aren’t comfortable sharing your story here, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
