Activate your entrepreneurial mindset: Powered by PechaKucha

Do you want to enhance your performance at work, be valued by your employer, and develop skills essential to today’s economy? One way to do so is to think like an entrepreneur. At this virtual event, four speakers will present their stories — including challenges they’ve overcome and lessons learned, accompanied by visuals — in a PechaKucha format. In these talks, the speakers — ranging from UBC alumni and students to community members — will share their experiences and expertise in everything from elite athletics to breweries to personal care products. This is your opportunity to learn how they benefited from having an entrepreneurial mindset and how you can continue strengthening this skillset.
