Hi. My name is Tana Plewes. I am the CEO of the Discovery Center for Entrepreneurship, a private career training organization specializing in entrepreneurial leadership development and corporate workforce innovation. We are Canada's first entrepreneurial leadership academy run by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.
Our core program is Michael E. Gerber's, Dreaming Room™, a 12-week, 36-hour practical course where participants develop an entrepreneurial mindset. For more information visit Possibility.ca. As a certified Dreaming Room™ Facilitator, I help individuals and organizational leaders to rise above their current economic circumstances to create a dream, vision, mission and purpose for their life that is expressed through their business or career. Multi-dimensional systems-thinking is what sets us apart and enables our participants to develop actionable business structures to fulfill their dream.
People who participate in our programs are looking to break out of the box in some way; either by starting a new venture, transforming their existing business, or seeking clarity prior to making a career change.
I give back to my community by serving as the community partner to the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (www.cybf.ca), a national charity that provides startup loans and mentoring to young people aged 18-39 wishing to start a business in Canada. My Fraser Valley territory includes Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope, Langley, Maple Ridge and Mission. I am happy to round up a couple of young entrepreneurs to make a presentation at your networking events. Their stories are so inspiring!
I have been married for 23 years and we have two children. I have a Master of Arts degree in Leadership from Royal Roads University.
