The Small Business Accelerator (SBA) – an initiative of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre – recently presented its first speaker events in Vancouver and Kelowna, respectively. The forum, entitled Smart Business, Small Business: An SBA Speaker Session, was held in conjunction with Small Business Week, organized by the Business Development Bank of Canada.

The Vancouver event, held October 17 at UBC Robson Square, featured two compelling speakers: Paul Cubbon, Marketing Instructor at UBC’s Sauder School of Business; and George Moen, a UBC alumnus, serial entrepreneur and President of Blenz The Canadian Coffee Company.

On October 19, three more speakers offered their insights at UBC’s Okanagan campus. These included Laurel Douglas, CEO of the Women’s Enterprise Centre; Norine Webster, an Adjunct Instructor in the Faculty of Management at the Okanagan campus; and Scott Coleman, a UBC Management student and co-founder of FunCore Strength and Conditioning.

Thank you to our great speakers, and to all who attended these inspiring events in-person and via our webcast!
