The Mark Brand brand

Social enterprise is on at the top of the agenda at the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce’s Annual General Meeting on March 27, as the Chamber welcomes keynote speaker Mark Brand, one of the most talked about business brains in Canada and part owner of Persephone Brewing Co. in Gibsons.

Successfully operating eight businesses in the downtown area, including Save On Meats, Brand has become a prominent example of a new generation of leadership. A fighter for Vancouver’s Downtown East Side, this social entrepreneur is determined to breathe new life into the struggling and disjointed community by finding a balance between sound business practices and social justice.

Brand’s keynote address, “Unconventional Solutions: Social Enterprises,” will discuss how to find a business balance that includes a healthy bottom line and social mandate.  The event will be held at the Gibsons Public Market on Friday, March 27 at 6 pm. Tickets are $10 for Chamber members or $20 for non-members. The event includes a reception with light refreshments. Submitted
