The Home – THNK School of Creative Leadership (#100-510 Beatty Street, Vancouver)

LOCO is partnering with Hopeful Economics to bring local businesses and progressive municipal politicians and staff together for an evening of networking, local food and drinks, and an inspiring interview with Judy Wicks.

Judy Wicks is an entrepreneur, author, speaker and mentor working to build a more compassionate, environmentally sustainable and locally based economy. Author of the award-winning memoir Good Morning Beautiful Business, Judy is the founder of the White Dog Cafe and a pioneer in the localization movement. Her passion will inspire you, and her years of experience as a social entrepreneur can help other business owners forge a path to cultivate lasting relationships with each other and the planet. Judy has truly set out to change neighbourhoods, but also the work – helping communities far and wide create local living economies that value people, nature and place more than money.
