Week 8 focus was on Company Culture. We travelled, laughed, and bonded! It was such a fun week (like always). Unfortunately, this is our second last week :(
Day 1: This was such a fun one! In the morning Lisa from FML Adventures presented her test trip to us. We are all so excited for her and can't wait to see the photos from her trip! Next Mackenzie Oak from Me my Soap and I, taught us how to make shower steamers, one of her best selling products! It was so fun and Leap Junction has never smelled better!
Next, we went to the Bakers Dozen in Old East Village. The owner William, taught us how the Bakers Dozen came to be and all the wonderful aspects of it, it was such a neat space. Then we treated ourselves to a spontaneous lunch at The Root Cellar, and YUM!!
Our day finished off at The Small Business Centre, where we had a round table discussion with the Summer Company. It was a great opportunity to collaborate and chat with other small business owners.
Day 2: We ventured to Propel, the summer incubator at Western. Everyone participated in a workshop learning about our leadership style and how it is effected by stress. After our lunch together we all got to introduce ourselves and see if there were any collaboration opportunities among one another.
Day 3: The day started with a presentation by our Entrepreneurial Curator Kelsey Currie, on Professional Practices as a small business owner. Next, we brain stormed ideas to stay connected after Leap Junction finishes. we had some great ideas and already can't wait to meet up. The day finished off with a work period and Brag and Drag by Ryan Kelly.
OUR FINAL WEEK next week! We cannot believe it! We have a jam packed week next week and can't wait to share it with you
