    • Coast Victoria Hotel & Marina by APA - 146 Kingston Street, Victoria BC

    Too often the first generation of owners do not really understand what is on the minds and in the hearts of their children, those who work for the business and those who choose not to.

    This will be a panel that includes:

    • Eric Findlay – 4th Generation and current CEO Andrew Sheret Limited
    • Erin Boggs – 2nd Generation and current CEO Robinsons Outdoor Store
    • Tai Orser – 2nd Generation and currently working in the business, The Root Cellar

    They will all provide unique insights, wisdom and advice on what they think and feel you need to know. If you’re just beginning transition or even if you have completed the transition, this session will provide lasting insights that you can put into practice. Non-members $25 and event is free for Members.
