Hosted by the Fresh Outlook Foundation (FOF), a Breakfast of Champions (BoC) gathers business people to celebrate their social, cultural, environmental, and/or economic successes. Each event has a specific theme and is hosted by a related organization.
FOF is partnering with PDJ & Associates/Okanagan Peer Mentoring Groups and UBC Okanagan to host the next BoC, entitled Driving the Business of Collaboration. It will feature a renowned keynote speaker and showcases local success stories about the benefits of businesses collaborating with individuals and organizations from government, academia, and the nonprofit sector. Attendees can also tour UBCO's research and development labs to see emerging trends in mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering.
In his keynote presentation at the next Breakfast of Champions March 2nd at UBC Okanagan, Mark Jennings-Bates (VP Sales for PAL-V Flying Car and a serial entrepreneur) will demonstrate how to grow and prosper through B2B collaboration and partnerships with organizations from other sectors.
Building Profitability: 5 Steps to Collaborative Growth

3. Take an honest inventory (Pinpoint and own your strengths and weaknesses)
4. Create a culture of collaboration (Turn up the heat on the human element)
5. Detect roadblocks early (Define desired outcomes and don’t get derailed)
