Come join us for informative and productive early morning learning and networking!
We are in our third year and usually meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays 07:30-09:00 at the Light House Sustainable Building Centre in Kitsilano. We have 230+ members as of June, 2011.
Fair trade coffee, "Capers" muffins and organic fruit are served for a $5.46 PayPal registration fee with proceeds benefiting the Light House Sustainable Building Centre. Plenty of free street parking and transit nearby.
Our meetings begin with a featured speaker presenting on a topic related to sustainability and we then break into more intimate round-table discussions followed by a mass "coffee cocktail" as the meeting wraps-up. Members have the opportunity to share stories, speak about their businesses, passions and projects, and leave with new ideas and quality referrals and leads.
Make no doubt about it …We encourage and engage business networking supporting the bottom line. Members seasoned or not, share an interest in exploring and engaging in business practices supporting an ecologically sustainable economy.
With buildings and homes as our common starting point, the Light House provides an ideal meeting place and excellent resource centre.
Members are encouraged to engage outside our meeting times, and there have been a good number of success stories that have come from the group, such as employment opportunities and real-world business deals.
The success of this group keeps me inspired to keep it alive and thriving!
