There is no other one day youth conference where you can get professional photos of your product shot and edited in the same day, coaching from marketing experts, meet business professionals from across the GTA, hear inspiring speakers and network with other young professionals.
Branded is all about giving young entrepreneurs real tools that can improve their marketing plan right away. Instead of teaching through workshops the Branded model is about hiring skilled young professionals to provide one-on-one and small group consulting to the young entrepreneurs. Branded aims to build the skills, marketing resources and networks of young entrepreneurs from Toronto’s priority neighborhoods, focused on supporting African Canadian and Newcomer youth.
Family, friends, program ambassadors, staff and of course the graduates came together to celebrate the successes and gains made by the first cohort of the Company Challenge Program. The night started with the C.E.O.S showcasing their individual businesses. While attendees toured the booths, the participants of CEE’s Kitchen Masters culinary program were hard at work preparing a 3 course meal lead by Chef Ben Ekuba and his two partners.
The entire room was a buzz of energy and smiles as Master of Ceremony and Poet Nadine Williams welcomed the graduates to receive their certificates. The commencement speech was delivered by Lawyer Layth Gafoor with surprise performances by The Violinist, Andrew Forde. In short, what a night!
We would like to especially the librarians and staff at York Woods Library who rallied with CEE staff to make this night special for the C.E.O.S.
