Welcome our latest sponsor — the Rotary District 5370 Conference!

We're excited to announce another new sponsor for the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB: Please welcome the Rotary District 5370 Conference!

For more than 110 years, Rotary has been bringing people together to create lasting change, globally, locally and within Rotarians themselves. Chances are you have benefited from something that Rotary has done, or you know someone who has. 

Here's another way to benefit: Dream, connect and inspire at the District 5370 Conference, happening at Edmonton's Shaw Conference Centre from Oct. 18 to 20. 

A number of stellar speakers, both local and international, are sharing their stories at this conference:

  • Barbara Stegemann, founder of The 7 Virtues, a perfume company that sources organic oils from countries in turmoil to help return some stability to their economies. She was inspired to do so after her best friend was wounded in Afghanistan, and believes in using business for good, at home and abroad.

  • Dr. Marilyn Fitzgerald, founder of Common Ground Solutions, a consulting firm that helps make sure humanitarian projects are effective and sustainable. She has written a book called If I Had a Water Buffalo, and she has a singular passion for helping others help themselves.

  • Jennifer Jones, president and CEO of Media Street Productions, an award-winning television production company based in Windsor, Ontario. She is one of Rotary International’s most recognized communicators, and has presented keynotes and workshops all over the world.

  • Susan Morrice, founder and chairwoman of Belize Natural Energy. She is a geologist, an explorer and a dealmaker, with a passion for the protection of our environment and a vision to uncover the true potential of everyone she meets.

  • Jeff Polovick, founder and former president of Driving Force, a transportation solutions company that started in Spruce Grove in 1978 and has since grown to 28 locations all over Canada. He has been recognized as one of Canada’s top entrepreneurs.

  • Mitty Chang, a web designer and consultant who started his entrepreneurial journey when he built his first website in 1998 — when he was in Grade 4! He started his first business in high school, and is now senior project manager and partner at Candeavor, a California-based marketing firm.

  • Stephanie Woollard, a social entrepreneur from Australia who founded Seven Women. Her not-for-profit provides training and employment for women with disabilities in Nepal, helping more than 5,000 find meaningful work.  

  • Dr. Douglas Jackson, CEO of Project C.U.R.E., which delivers donated medical supplies and equipment to desperately needy people around the world. Since 1987, Project C.U.R.E. has delivered equipment and supplies to hospitals and clinics in over 130 countries.

  • Michael Angelo Caruso, founder and president of Edison House, an international consulting firm specializing in corporate and personal improvement. He draws on his experience in telecommunications and music to educate and entertain.

We love telling stories and sharing useful information at the Alberta Podcast Network, which is why we're excited to bring this opportunity to our listeners and followers.
