Fall in love with Fall For Local // #SOCIALintheCITY Event Review // Written by Mara Falstein

I had the pleasure of spending last Thursday with the Social City Networking girls Sara and Krista at the first annual Fall for Local Speaker Series. For her third year of Fall For Local in Vancouver, director and founder Kelly Turner decided to expand the event to include a daytime speaker series in addition to the event’s traditional evening Pop Up Soiree, featuring a wide variety of small Vancouver businesses setting up shop and dishing out information and samples to Vancouverites curious to discover some new gems in their city’s flourishing small business marketplace. The speaker series included a wide variety of panels, a few of which are recapped in this summary below for those who couldn’t make the talks. I’ve given a brief summary of the topic of conversation and a few of the main themes and takeaways from three of the talks and would highly recommend attending future events if you want to learn more about how to succeed as an entrepreneur in Vancouver or how to make that transition from day job grind to passion project hustle.
