I hosted the first event of 2020 on February 14th, where we focused on ‘Protecting Your Ideas’ with Natalie Raffoul, Managing Attorney at Brion Raffoul and Julia Elvidge, Tech Business Leader, Advisor, Mentor, Investor and Board Member.
It’s not every day you see stroller parking, car seats, onesie snowsuits and a children’s play area in the Training Room at Bayview Yards (also the home of Invest Ottawa). And it’s not every day as a parent that you find yourself mixing with other parents alongside your kids, as you discuss protecting your ideas, the implications of having (or not having) an Intellectual Property strategy, the changing tech landscape and how others have mixed (and are still learning how best to mix) work and home in life.
Join us on Friday, February 14th 2020 from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. to talk about protecting your ideas (and investing in yourself). Fuel up on fresh business inspiration, strong coffee and connect with other like-minded parents at Babies, Business + Breakfast.
This is not a sponsored post, it’s a mini story about serendipity, manifesting, community and supporting small business.
Earlier this Fall, the team at Bayview Yards approached me to host our group as one of the regular ‘Bayview Meetups’ which means events will be lower cost for me to host and hopefully we will be able to welcome even more parents who want to pursue professional development alongside their loved ones!
It’s all about relationships:
This is what parent-friendly professional development looks like. I will admit, I didn’t take many notes this time around because I was too busy meeting people, making coffees, ensuring everyone was having a good time and mixing together.
