The endearingly popular “Top 40” program presented by BDO LLP through the Kelowna
Chamber is launching for its seventh year, recognizing young difference-makers, leaders, and
entrepreneurs who are making an impact throughout the Central Okanagan.
“This program provides a fantastic opportunity to highlight those in every sector that are providing a
platform for positivity as we continue to recover from the pandemic,” said Jeffrey Robinson, Chamber
President. “We’re thrilled to be partnering once again with BDO to recognize those young professionals
in the communities we serve that are striving to make their mark and are driving prosperity across the
Mike Gilmore, Office Managing Partner, BDO Canada LLP echoes Robinson’s sentiments. “BDO Canada
has always looked at the Top 40 program as one of our key sponsorships. It’s such a great opportunity to
not only help us celebrate the region’s talent, but also to be inspired by them.”
Nominees will be evaluated on pre-determined criteria by an independent judging panel. Two recipients
will be featured across a range of media: print, online, digital, radio – on a weekly basis from late
January to the end of June. A wrap-up celebration will recognize all 40 Honourees in mid-summer. Nominees must have been 39 or under as of January 1, 2022.
