10-1 p.m – PANEL DISCUSSION
For this 5th edition of Brunch In The City, we decided to switch things up. We decided to take what originally started as a creative pop-up idea, grew to a desire to celebrate the local female hustle to the point of becoming Montreal’s BIGGEST fashion networking event – and bring it to greater heights. Heights that no longer only gather, but elevate. Captivate. Stimulate. We’ve teamed up with Toronto-based movement WIPP (Women Inspiring Passion and Purpose) to begin the day with just that – women whose professional and personal paths have inspired many. Through their creativity, individuality and vulnerability, these women demonstrate that you can, indeed, find purpose through your passion – and make (good) money while doing it.
ABOUT WIPP (Women Inspiring Passion & Purpose)
WIPP is a group of successful female entrepreneurs and artists looking to create a positive movement for women who are currently working in the creative industries. They gather knowledge through shared experiences, with the ultimate mission of helping provide the tools to create and cultivate a lasting career. The carefully selected panelists for the event(s) are admired for top-level influence within their industries, as well as their willingness to share strategies and advice on how to navigate successfully in their chosen fields. The demand for solutions and opportunities is apparent and needs to be addressed. Their movement is designed to deliver those solutions as well as relay that a sustainable lifestyle can be achieved through both passion and purpose.
1 p.m – 5 p.m – BRUNCH N’ SHOP
