startup edmonton welcomes kelly hoey | Build your dream network 

  • Tuesday, May 30, 2017 | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM. Your ticket includes a copy of Kelly's new book!

If you think networking is about schmoozing at cocktail parties or sending a flurry of LinkedIn invites to people you don’t know, think again. Moderated by Tiffany Linke-Boyko, CEO - Startup Edmonton, this interactive session features investor and author, Kelly Hoey, as she provides innovative insights into strategies that will help you form genuine relationships and harness the power of your network to accomplish any goal, from advancing in your career or landing a coveted account to successfully attracting new clients.

The strength of Kelly’s connections and networks explain how this former attorney pivoted to become a much sought after speaker, seasoned investor and published author. Her carefully crafted journey has led to appearances as a panelist on CNBC’s Power Pitch as well as the honour of being named one of the “25 Smartest Women On Twitter” by Fast Company and being listed as “1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship” by Forbes.

Kelly's visit is made possible through the support of the Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN.)  CDMN is a network of 26 regional innovation hubs across Canada, all focused on supporting Canada’s digital entrepreneurs. Designated a federal Centre of Excellence in Commercialization and Research, CDMN is dedicated to establishing Canada as a world leader in the digital economy.
