Ottawa’s young professionals get inspired

Work with us

By Linda Forrest

Last night, I attended the launch of the second season of the Young Business Network of the National Capital. This was my first time at an event put on by this organization, as it seems was the case for most of the attendees. It was a good opportunity to network with other young professionals and hear words of wisdom from Adrian Salamunovic from DNA 11, an intriguing company that we were first introduced to when its other co-founder spoke at a Junior Achievement of Eastern Ontario event last year, Kim Dixon from TalkSwitch, a celebrated businesswoman with a long history in Ottawa’s tech community and Kevin Dee, CEO of Eagle Professional Resources and the Ottawa Business Journal‘s CEO of the year in 2006. The theme was “inspiration” and each speaker had valuable insights into what they think are the keys to success. Adrian in particular talked about harnessing the power of public relations and how the coverage that his company has received in top tier publications has had a direct impact on the spectacular growth of his company from inception to 7-figure revenues in under two years. I’m looking forward to other events put on by this organization, of which I’m now a member, and am encouraged to see so many of Ottawa’s bright, talented young people looking to share ideas and network.
