Event description


Celebrate and learn from the brands that are making a big impact in Calgary, in Canada and the world.

Impactful brands have a different way of doing things. They have better relationships with their clients. They have a product or service people simply can’t live without. They have a bigger vision than just the business, and because of it, they make a far greater impact on the world.

We can all learn from companies like that, which is why we are inviting you to our Impact Stories Spring Event.

During this intimate evening, you will be surrounded by other dynamic leaders, while you enjoy cocktails, network and learn. The panel discussion will feature industry leaders sharing their impactful stories, so you can get the insights you need to inspire your business in a brand new way.

Seating is limited so please RSVP.
