Philanthropy + Entrepreneurship = "Dragon Emeritus" W. Brett Wilson

"Yes, he'll do it".

Those four words were music to our ears coming through the phone from W. Brett Wilson's publicist a few short weeks ago. Kelowna Chamber Staffer, Stephanie, had been diligently persuing him since she sat in a lecture by the mogul himself at Okangan College in January. 

  Brett is best known for his 3 seasons as a "Dragon" on CBC's hit tv show, Dragon's Den, however he's certainly been making a name around town for himself since buying Global Fitness, and more recently the development of PraireWest Centre, home of the new FABRICLAND.

We are thrilled to have him as our guest speaker immediately following our Annual General Meeting. Brett will bring stories from behind the scenes during his celebrated time on CBC's Dragons' Den, discuss the importance of planting the seeds of 

entrepreneurship in Canada, as well as share the three pillars to success we should all start to study today!   

Don't miss opportunity to hear from and meet one of Canada's most successful business people.
