  • Great partnerships start with people. And the people at @startupyyc were so welcoming this week during my impromptu visit, that we just had to post about it. We can't wait to partner with them through the podcast and with @tech_manitoba and @northforgemb to bring awesome local start-ups together in a Prairies Delegation. 🤜🤛 Are you in tech and planning to attend @colabsyxe #UnitingThePrairies in SK? Or @startupfest in Montreal? Want to be part of a group of start-ups instead of going it alone? Reach out to your local start-up org to be a part of these events as a united group! We look forward to seeing you there. DM or comment for more info.

  • At least we thought we were funny. Great shoot recently for @ILikeHue with these stunning women in business. Thanks Tracy  @fashion_winnipegofficial and @susie_parker for bringing different perspectives to the table. Discussing interesting topics with this panel of women is invigorating. My advice? Next time you get together with your friends, discuss something outside the norm. It will challenge you and help you grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Do you talk with your hands? According to @vvanedwards, lead investigator at The Science of People, the more hand gestures in a @Ted Talk, the more successful it is. In a study they did of thousands of videos, there was a direct correlation between the number of views of a #TedTalk, and the number of hand gestures. 👋Think an average of 465 hand gestures in the best talks. And to give an example, @simonsinek had over 600 in his! 👋 So be proud and let your hands do the talking!
