SESSIONS DETAILS:

Karen Schenk - Be Transformational. Be Unstoppable.

Each of us has the potential to change the world. Because the price of change is so high, we seldom take on the challenge. Transformational leadership identifies needed change, engages a team and then executes the needed change. As leaders, our fears often blind us and hinder us so we cannot see the price of not making deep change, which begins with the individual. As we make deep personal change, we develop a new paradigm, a new self, one that is more effectively aligned with today’s realities. This only occurs if we are willing to journey into unknown territory and confront the wicked problems we encounter. Discover the secret behind entrepreneurs as they align purpose and passion. Be adventurous and step into the unknown.

Michael Wharmby - Building a Team that is Motivated to Care and Empowered to Rise

Cultivating growth in an organization requires vision, opportunity, and commitment. More importantly, it requires a team; the right team striving toward a common goal. Unexpected challenges and rewards are a natural result of expanding your business, and building the right team enables you to face those challenges with a strong sense of purpose and without compromising your values. Being intentional every day inspires your team to not only foster connections with each other and your clients, but to take ownership of their role and act as a leader within your organization.

Glenda Beagle - Save Time & Money by Marketing to the Right Customers

Marketing is changing, it's no longer about having the most ads, the biggest signs or the flashiest campaigns. Today's marketing landscape is shaped by who knows their customers the best, speaking their language and creating deep connections. This session focuses on how to get the attention of your ideal customer in a noisy world so that you can minimize the time & money spent on marketing while growing your sales and customer base.

Mike

Michael Wharmby: Innovative Mortgage Solutions

Innovative Mortgage Solutions was founded by Michael Wharmby in September 2006. After graduating from the University of Alberta in 2001 with a Business Degree majoring in Finance, Michael's mathematical strengths and keen sense of business led him to build an independent mortgage brokerage with a vision to educate clients and develop long-lasting relationships.

The invested effort over the past thirteen years has resulted in a company operating on the fundamental principles it was built upon. This year, the Innovative team expanded and are now able to offer their clients an added level of service with the opening of a brand new ATB branch. Combined with the newly opened ATB, Michael now staffs a team of fourteen employees; five brokers to drive sales and seven dedicated administrative support staff, plus two branch representatives at ATB. Michael and his team are committed to curating a unique and personal experience for their clientele, no matter the financing need.



Glenda

Glenda Beagle: Marketing and Mindset Coach

Glenda is a Business and Marketing Coach for offline small businesses. After spending years trying every marketing technique and tool out there only to discover that didn’t work the work the way they promised, Glenda realized the “Who” you marketed to needed to be the focus over the “how”. Unlike other social media coaches and speakers who will share the latest technique or hack for a platform, Glenda dives deep into the mind of your customer so that they will find you, hear you, see you and most importantly buy from you. Allowing you to save time, money and stress all while growing your sales and your bottom line.

Glenda offers workshops, group coaching, 1:1 coaching and is the host of the soon to be released Rediscovering Main Street Podcast.
