1. Learn from the Experts
Our True Confessions speakers Mary Waldner, from Mary’s Gone Crackers, and Bernie Lee, of Pure Energies Solar Systems, have experience building multi-million dollar enterprises and will be sharing their journeys from dream to reality to success story to inspire and educate us all.

2. Learn from Your Peers
As always the conference program offers many opportunities to learn from the wisdom in the room. From Case Studies, to Peer Circles and One-on-One Experts, we champion the knowledge of everyone in the room.

3. Examine Your Impact
We’re compiling a powerful panel conversation to look at what doing good business or making a positive impact really means. Hear from experts and those starting out on their journey about what building a business as a force for good looks like today.

4. Make Powerful Connections
We all know that some of the most highly valued take-aways from any gathering include the people you meet and the bonds you form. SVI connects people in powerful ways that help shift their business to new heights. Be a part of the conversation.

5. Position Yourself As An Expert
Sign up to be one of our One-on-One Experts and offer your wisdom to other attendees as you advance your leadership in your sector.

6. Shoes
Once again we’re having our evening party on May 4th at the Fluevog store. Choosing to be surrounded by change makers and stunning shoes is never a bad idea.

7. Local Beer, Wine & Cider
We’re thrilled to be welcoming Gabby’s Cidery, Bridge Brewing and Black Cloud winery as our beverage sponsors for the party on May 4th.

8. It’s Your Time To Shine
Have you always wanted to do a Marketplace of Ideas pitch? Are you already a pro at capturing a room’s attention in 90 seconds or less? There’s nothing quite like the opportunity to let your vision shine in a room full of like-minded people.

9. New Faces
Reconnecting with a community you already know is great, but who doesn’t like expanding their network of smart, audacious leaders? Being in the city, SVI Vancouver attracts alumni and new faces alike with an ever growing list of fresh faces eager to find out what the buzz is all about.

10. Because You Belong
If you’re getting this list it’s because you’re already a part of this incredible community or someone who is a part of that community thinks you should join. The people who gather for SVI and the connections they form are a beauty to behold, and this is your chance to strengthen those bonds and make some magic happen!
