What can a Moroccan Jewish Vancouverite, an Italian from Montreal’s Saint Leonard and an Eastern European born during the Soviet regime and raised in finally independent Ukraine possibly have in common?
We come from completely different walks of life, with our parents speaking neither English nor French as their first language. We witnessed struggle, adversity and ultimately privilege – an opportunity we all share as Canadians – the ability to reach the peaks of professional and personal success.
What unite the three of us, despite our drastically different backgrounds, are our values, our mindset, and our driving purpose.
We believe – and don’t you? – that human potential is limitless and that the key to growth lies in the never-ending pursuit of learning and self-development. Stagnation and status quo are scary concepts to us and we have made it our lives’ mission to challenge both.Read More
For years, we have been helping people find jobs. Making a real impact on the lives of others is incredibly rewarding, and we tirelessly swap stories that move us and make our work feel truly meaningful. Yet, for hundreds of people whom we help along in their career, there are thousands that are left on the side throughout the process (only 1 person gets “that job,” after all).
We realized that there are a ton of impressive, awesome, determined people in this country who are passionate about their careers, eager to transform themselves, and striving for success in whatever form that means for them. Yet, we also realized that so much of the reason these (great) people are not getting employed where they want to is because they don’t know how to effectively communicate their “personal brand” to current or future employers. Oftentimes they don’t know if they even have a brand or not.
We want to do something to help those people, too.
So we decided to open up a learning hub – a unique place that brings together people from all walks of life who want to acquire tools that could change the course of their career, bring a new dimension of skills and of thought to their current employer, and help build or expand a personal brand that could make them more employable, more marketable, and more modern.
Our incredible instructors – professionals, not professors – will be teaching you to “speak digital,” to showcase your employee brand and to continuously expand your knowledge to remain current. We believe in personalization and we value human connection above all, which is why our classes are not online; they will be held in a classroom where you will be fueled with unlimited coffee while not only learning but also having fun with awesome people around you.
Our journeys have been atypical and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on the next leg of it with you!
