YES 2018 - Event Details

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 VIP Reception for attendees on the evening of November 26th. Important announcements regarding the event will be made so be sure you do not miss the Reception!  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.

A $5,000 cash prize goes to the winning team!!
