Marketing Credentials

As a serial entrepreneur my belief is sales & marketing are core skills in business and in life. Having started, operated and sold several ventures I bring practical experience to the classroom including the successes but possibly more importantly, the challenges and failures that I’ve faced along the way. Working as a Business Consultant and Teacher with a number of Self Employment programs throughout Metro Vancouver has allowed me to share sales and marketing skills and experiences with new and seasoned entrepreneurs. The primary ventures I’ve been involved in are The Web Factory providing Website Hosting along with Website and Database Design services and most recently starting SmartyPantz Entertainment an Escape Room business with locations in Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.
