Event description

Description

Norfolk County's popular Economic Development Symposium is the place where Norfolk County business and community leaders network, learn and celebrate success.

This year's theme is "We Grow Our Own", a nod to the innovative entrepreneurs, technology and ideas that had their start in Norfolk County.

Lunch, excellent speakers, great information, award-winning success stories, and networking opportunities are all part of the experience.

Keynote Speaker: EJ Carrion is a top youth speaker, best-selling author, successful entrepreneur, and preeminent thought-leader on success. EJ grew up in a low-income community and a single-parent household. He overcame his circumstances to graduate from both high school and college debt free by receiving the prestigious Bill Gates Scholarship. EJ has even presented at the White House.

Afternoon Speaker: Amanda Brodhagen is a proud fifth-generation farm girl and Ontario Ambassador for AgMoreThanEver.ca, a positive voice for Canadian agriculture. Amanda is digital marketing manager for The Grower Magazine and plans to take over her family's beef farm.
