ATHABASCA COUNTY and the TED COMMITTEE in partnership with ATB Entrepreneurship Centre, the Athabasca and Boyle Chambers of Commerce will deliver a series of virtual business workshops and webinars:

The perfect work/life balance… is it actually achievable or just some entrepreneurial myth that always seems beyond your reach?

While a healthy balance is challenging it is imperative that you work at it if you want to succeed in business and in your personal life. Join Dwayne Holland as he shares from his own experiences and discusses how to balance the big plates in your life.

Dwayne has been building brands for 25 years, working with both small businesses and large organizations to help position them in an overcrowded marketplace.

Three generations of entrepreneurial heritage has given Dwayne valuable insight into what it takes to win in the marketplace. From agriculture to retail, his roots have influenced his own story and he’s learned that your brand starts at the heart of who you are.

This webinar is sponsored by the ATB Entrepreneurship Centre and the Athabasca Region Tourism & Economic Development Committee.
