An award win­ning and high­ly acclaimed pho­tog­ra­ph­er, author, pub­lish­er, keynote speak­er and artist!

 

Allan has won many acco­lades for his pho­tog­ra­phy of peo­ple of action. He began shoot­ing hard core sports in the ear­ly Sev­en­ties, fol­low­ing the F1 Grand Prix cir­cuit and the Cana­di­an down­hill ski rac­ers known around the world as the Crazy Canucks. In 1974, he cov­ered the Rus­sia-Cana­da hock­ey series for the Nation­al Sport and Recre­ation Cen­ter.

Date: Wednes­day, Novem­ber 8, 2017 – 6 pm to 9 pm

Join us as we cel­e­brate Finland’s first 100 years, and maybe get some insight into what’s up for the next 100 years. Aila Kar­pio, Hon­orary Vice-Con­sul for Fin­land in Van­cou­ver, has put togeth­er a pre­sen­ta­tion that should be inter­est­ing and insight­ful. Many of us who know Aila, from many years in the Scan­di­na­vian Busi­ness Club of BC, are very much look­ing for­ward to this event.

Aila Kar­pio worked many years in the trav­el and tourism indus­tries, both in her native Fin­land and Cana­da, until she start­ed her own com­pa­ny in 1996 in Van­cou­ver (Spets Asso­ci­a­tion Man­age­ment).

Aila is a nat­ur­al orga­niz­er who can quick­ly stream­line and update a not-for-prof­it association’s oper­a­tions. She is an expert team builder, whether build­ing a board of direc­tors or recruit­ing vol­un­teers for an event. Due to her per­son­al val­ues, Aila is an advo­cate of the triple bot­tom line: peo­ple, plan­et, prof­its.

HOW TO ACHIEVE BETTER MARKETING RESULTS WITHOUT SPENDING MORE
pre­sent­ed by:  RNOLD SMITH

(Red Robin­son A Ret­ro­spec­tive from a Pio­neer Rock’n Roll DJ Can­celled)

A big chal­lenge for small busi­ness own­ers, self-employed pro­fes­sion­als, and even an employ­ee look­ing for a raise, is answer­ing the ques­tion, “Why you?”. I have asked hun­dreds of peo­ple this ques­tion and the vast major­i­ty don’t pro­vide any use­ful infor­ma­tion that tells me why I should buy from them specif­i­cal­ly. In fact, most peo­ple say some form of the exact same thing! So then, how do you choose between two expe­ri­enced Real­tors, Plumbers or Graph­ic Artists etc.?

Your answer should be spe­cif­ic and con­crete and be tied to what your ide­al cus­tomers care about the most. In this talk I explain how to dif­fer­en­ti­ate your­self so that you become more per­sua­sive and get more cus­tomers with­out spend­ing more mon­ey.

Rnold is a New West­min­ster based busi­ness growth con­sul­tant. He helps his clients acquire new ide­al cus­tomers in the fastest, eas­i­est and cheap­est way pos­si­ble based on their cur­rent cir­cum­stances. Peo­ple work with Rnold because he is fun, has decades of busi­ness devel­op­ment expe­ri­ence and his strate­gies are easy to imple­ment and based in real­i­ty.

He is exec­u­tive direc­tor for the New West­min­ster Cham­ber of Com­merce, the founder of the Busi­ness Col­lab­o­ra­tion Net­work, and Pres­i­dent of the McBride Sap­per­ton Res­i­dents Asso­ci­a­tion.

Date: Wednes­day, Octo­ber 11, 2017 – 6 pm to 9 pm

Guests are always wel­come! Invite col­leagues, clients, friends and fam­i­ly.

Time: 6 – 7pm: Net­work­ing and social­iz­ing hour

Starter:  Her­ring and salmon on mini rye breads
Main Course:  Roast Pork
Dessert: Choco­late Mousse, Cook­ies, Tea & Cof­fee
