About Young Entrepreneurs Symposium (YES) 2018

The Young Entrepreneurs Symposium (YES) brings young Indigenous Entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs-to-be together with business leaders and role models to help foster the skills, knowledge and networks they need to be the business leaders of tomorrow. YES starts with a welcome reception on the evening of November 26th. The energetic agenda then moves through three days of powerful presentations, spirited panel discussion and demanding team challenges that require delegates to create a team out of strangers, to collaborate while applying leadership skills and to activate imagination while kicking problem solving skills into overdrive.

I went into YES2015 feeling nervous, shy, uncomfortable, and intimidated. I left feeling confident in that whatever I do, I know I will succeed. I will accomplish great things, we all will!

Marcia Benson former YES delegate
