Summary

The workshop was a huge success!

The morning started off with an icebreaker to get the crowd comfortable with each other. Next was a presentation from FINALY! that explained the basics of the organization and upcoming events followed by a youth ventures presentation. Next the crowd got the honest truth about "being your own boss" from local entrepreneur, Jackie Hunter. The Morning continued with a networking break and a game of Zone 7 trivia followed by a presentation from Mike Ball from the Corner Brook CBDC.

After lunch, the participants had their opportunity to put what they had learned in the morning session to work with an interactive exercise titled: "Bright Hope Bay". The participants were given a scenario of a dying rural community in NL that needed their help to stay alive. To finish off our AWESOME day we explored Cow Head and networked while touring the harbour on a 1 hr boat ride.
