JCI Project Manager Ryan Lancaster explained that each speaker was chosen uniquely to ensure they matched the “building legacy” theme for the event.

“Steve has built an amazing foundation through his tech legacy. Sharon will speak towards the legacy builders of what is Kelowna today. Nicole brings her experience around creating corporate social responsibility for local companies,” he said.

Audience members will also have an opportunity to talk with the speakers during the event, Lancaster noted.

“Each presentation will be about 30 minutes, and speakers will have discussions for about 10 minutes. To be honest, we don’t know where the conversation will lead. We want to create a space for that,” he stated.

JCI Kelowna is a a local, non-profit organization aiming to create better active citizens in local communities.
