KEY NOTE SPEAKERS:
NATALIE PEACE, MBA, BA
Natalie Peace is a successful entrepreneur who opened her first business at 25 years old; a Booster Juice location in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, in 2006 while she was studying business as an undergrad at Thompson Rivers University. Within two years she owned all three locations in Kamloops, including the busiest location in British Columbia generating nearly $2 million a year in gross revenue, and employing approximately fifty team members. In 2007, Peace graduated with her business degree, and was named Young Entrepreneur of the Year by the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, and in 2011 Natalie was a finalist for Business Person of the Year. Natalie has since sold her Booster Juice franchises, and was invited to be a contributing writer for Forbes Business magazine, writing a column called Peace & Profit. She obtained her Master's Degree in Business, and was the University's very first Young Entrepreneur in Residence mentoring students and offering business guidance. Natalie developed an app for Apple and Android, designed for children called Club Kindness, teaching children to do age appropriate acts of kindness. In the fall of 2013 she accepted a position as a Sessional Lecturer, teaching Small Business Management, Retail Management, and Introduction to Business, in The School of Business and Economics at Thompson Rivers University. Natalie is currently working as a business consultant and Entrepreneur Coach, taking on a select few clients each year. She is also writing a book for would-be entrepreneurs. In addition to investing in numerous ventures, Peace is also enthusiastically working on starting another quick-serve style restaurant with an emphasis on nutrition.
Natalie is firm believer in using your business to make a positive contribution to the world around you, and measuring success on multiple bottom lines.
