• Are you struggling to fill your events?

• Do you use deep discounts and freebies to fill your events?

• Do you understand the power of a contest to fill your events?


Come and join us on Saturday morning April 9 (repeated on Monday evening, April 11 at Spacekraft in Burnaby) and learn from Roger Killen and his team how to use a contest to sell 1,000 tickets to your next event. He will use the upcoming Flyaway Contest - designed to sell 1,000 tickets to TEDxStanleyPark ( ) - as a case study and you’ll get to experience this contest from the inside. In mid-May a “post mortem” workshop will be held to review this contest’s data metrics, lessons learnt and “what would I do next time”.


Roger Killen was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, attended Trinity College in Dublin and graduated with an honours degree in Business Studies and a single digit golf handicap in 1973. He immigrated to Canada in 1975 and worked as a salesman and product manager for Xerox Canada until 1979. Roger has 40 years of front line experience involving 13 startups.

Roger is now a change agent. He gives legs to dreams of what could be. He does this by producing a weekly learn-network-grow Meetup for the members of the Vancouver Business Network and an annual TEDxStanleyPark ( ) conference for open and curious people searching for ways to make positive change in our world.
