Warm greetings from Singapore to all of you who attended the most recent Vancouver Entrepreneur Meetup! I've been a regular member of the Meetup for the last 2 or 3 years and have found it to be an incredibly effective platform for networking with fellow entrepreneurs. I wished I was there with you in person, but was grateful to spend some time with you through the wonders of technology!
I've been a loyal reader of 'Make it Business' for years, since the days of 'The Office Journal' and am so humbled that Soho Sales Coaching is the featured cover story. I'm even more thrilled that two of our clients, Rob Thompson of Cornerstone Business Technology and financial advisor Alice Shin were also featured in the article and shared their stories of climbing the stairway to success.

Again, I feel honored that Soho Sales Coaching is the featured cover story for the current issue of 'Make it Business' magazine, and very proud that we are the only sales coaching business in Vancouver that focuses exclusively and specializes in small office and home office business. I hope to see you at an upcoming event!

28 April 2009, Tuesday Fireside Chat with Tech Legend Ken Spencer
As part of our ?Technology Legends? theme, the VEF is pleased to present a fireside chat with local legend Ken Spencer. After holding a senior executive role in many BC technology companies such as MacDonald Detwiller and Associates and Glenayre, Ken and his partner Dan Gelbart branched out on their own to found Creo Products. Over the next 20 years, they grew the company into BC?s largest technology company with 4,000 employees and revenues of nearly $1 billion, took the company public and eventually sold the company to Kodak in 2005.
Laurie Wallace, past co-founder of Datum Telegraphic and current co-founder of FlyOver Entertainment will moderate the fireside chat. He and Ken will talk about Ken?s drive to co-found Creo Products, his motivation for wanting to run his ?own? company, and the keys to growing Creo into BC?s largest technology company.
