Business mixer and talk show for businesspeople, combined with IMPACT SD « graduation »

Hors d’oeuvres, discussions and information sharing

ABRAM-VILLAGE – June 13, 2024 – The Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI invites all francophone businesspeople from the Island to attend a special business mixer on the outdoor terrace of the Village musical acadien in Abram-Village Friday, June 28, from 5-7 p.m.

In fact, it’s during this informal event, featuring complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar service, that the three participants from the first year of RDÉE PEI’s Sustainable Development IMPACT Program, will “graduate” and receive their certificates of accomplishment.

Following their “graduation”, the representatives from Urbainville Farms, Double Hill Cidery and the Société acadienne et francophone de l’ÎPÉ (SAF’Île) will take part in a talk show-style panel discussion entitled “Sustainable Development: How It Pays for my Business or My Organization To Get Involved”. The trio will be joined on stage by Israël Poulin, coordinator of the PEI edition of the Atlantic Canadian IMPACT project, who is also a multi-entrepreneur implementing numerous sustainable development practices. Maryne Floch-Le Goff, RDÉE PEI’s sustainable development officer, will host the talk show.

In turn, the four panelists will share what they are doing within their companies or organizations to make their operations more sustainable and financially efficient, from a natural, human and financial resources perspective, as well as from an angle of responsible governance.

Panelists will also talk about how they have benefited from the training and coaching provided by the SD IMPACT program over the past year to help them move towards sustainability. The RDÉE will then take advantage of the opportunity to talk about sustainable development in general and the SD IMPACT program, and to invite businesses and organizations to register free of charge for the second or third year of the program’s training (16 hours) and coaching (up to 100 hours).

There will also be draws for door prizes.

No pre-registration is necessary. Guests are simply asked to arrive at the Village musical acadien terrace at the specified time. In the event of inclement weather, the event will take place inside the VMA’s main hall.
