WREN founder, Liza Rogers, helps members discover, analyze and purchase properties by working with those who are ready to take on ownership and assist with the management of the properties.  Together, we connect women with income generating real estate, transforming an inaccessible dream into an attainable reality.  The glass ceiling is an open skylight when you own the building!

2016 All-Island Entrepreneurial Summit

What a terrific day with some great Island Entrepreneurs.  The speakers were brilliant, Arbutus Ridge provided a stunning venue and the group of entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals who took the time to join us brought energy, expertise and, most importantly, community!  YES is thrilled to have begun to build the relationships across the Island that will help break down the Malahat divide on the island between Victoria and Nanaimo, Duncan and Vancouver Island.


While many of us work around the world through the wonders of the internet and air travel, but we still struggle to connect across our beautiful island.  The opportunities that we have all begun to open up are huge!

About Social Media Camp

We are Social Media Camp – Canada’s largest social media conference. What makes us unique is the broad spectrum of delegates we attract as we tackle all aspects of social media. People come from all over North America, and from all sectors of the economy – small business, large business, government, education, and non-profit.

Of course we cover social media marketing – communications, sales, crowdsourcing, e-learning, digital marketing, content marketing, e-mail marketing, inbound marketing, and more.

But we are not only a “marketing” conference. We look at the cultural impacts of social media, its effects on politics, and its security and safety implications.

What does the future hold, what’s on the horizon, and what is its impact on your business, relationships, family, lifestyle, and our world?

Perhaps best of all, we network – a lot – share our ideas with each other, collaborate, build lasting partnerships, and epic ventures. In seven years, the meetings held at Social Media Camp have spawned thousands of amazing partnerships, and there are thousands more ahead.

We are a conference for experts, and a conference for beginners. If you are newer to social media, our renowned, complimentary coaching program will help kick start your Social Media Camp experience.

You can see that the Social Media Camp community is a diverse one, and we’d like to invite you to join us.

Don’t miss the 7th annual event, May 5th to 7th, 2016, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
