YPE Annual Stand Out! Conference Returns in November
Through networking events and an annual full-day seminar, the Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs (YPE) division of the RHMCBA connects individuals who are new to the business world to one another and to local business leaders and established professionals. The YPE division is perfect for professionals in the first few years of their careers, young entrepreneurs looking to gain a foothold in the marketplace and recent or soon-to-be graduates who would like to better understand the possibilities and opportunities available to them.
The YPE’s first annual seminar (held in September 2015) was a tremendous success. Attended by a large number of young professionals and entrepreneurs from across York Region and the GTA, the seminar focused on building the skills necessary to excel in any career, profession or business. Attendees received practical business tips from large local employers and were particularly motivated, encouraged and entertained by globally renowned author and TED Talks speaker, Richard St. John. Mr. St. John not only shared his “8 secrets of success” with attendees, he also drew upon lessons from many of the successful business people whom he interviewed, including Bill Gates and Richard Branson. The feedback from the first annual seminar has so far been excellent and the YPE division is currently organizing the second annual seminar, which will take place on November 19, 2016. Additional details will be forthcoming, but we ask you to please mark your calendars in advance and in anticipation of what promises to be an exciting and truly worthwhile event.
More recently, the YPE division held a networking event in Markham which provided young professionals and entrepreneurs with an informal forum in which to connect with one another. Similar networking events are also being planned and we ask that you please visit the RHMCBA website (www.rhmcba.ca) for more details.
