As a business owner in Brampton, where I was born and raised, I have an old school philosophy on volunteering my time for the betterment of the community.  I believe that it is a business owner’s responsibility to give back to the community in some way if they expect to operate a successful business within that City. With SBEC over a long period of time, I have been able to work with a wide variety of people ranging from 10 year old entrepreneurs, to teens running a summer business and a vast number of professional business people who needed advice and mentoring to help them at various stages of their business cycles.

As business people, we have all encountered the ups and downs, and through a sharing of experience and knowledge, we can assist others in smoothing over the bumps, provide an environment for change and growth and give feedback from a different perspective on the business in a supporting manner.  It is a truly rewarding experience to see the expression on someone’s face when they experience “the light bulb” go on during a mentoring, coaching or training session.
Volunteering with SBEC has allowed me to stay close to the business community in Brampton, meet some extraordinary people over the years and learn something new from each and every interaction I have as a volunteer, which has allowed me to grow as a business person as well.
