Speaker Series: Getting to the Start Line – Leadership in 2023

15 December 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Crystal Flaman has prepared a pre-holiday, pre-2023 Resolutions presentation especially for Chamber members as we head into the festive season. Join Crystal and lots of Chamber members and get inspired, energized, and look at some remarkable images from Crystal’s treks – literally – around the world as she proves that it’s not what you think you can do, but what you end up doing – with some help along the way from remarkable mentors and volunteers.


Social entrepreneur and athlete, Crystal’s mission in life is to make a difference. She’s raised over $1.4 million for charities through her work and athletic endeavours.


Crystal is a 12 x Ironman finisher, a two-time 273km ultra-marathoner finisher and cycled across Canada on the first tandem bike to cross the country with her twin sister. Crystal will help everyone in the room on December 15th figure out what’s stopping them from getting – not to the finish line – but to the starting line – of their dreams, in their business, in their life.


Here’s what Laura Thurnheer, Associate Dean, Okanagan School of Business says about Crystal:


“Her physical and mental strength is only matched by the kindness of her heart. Crystal Flaman is a talented entrepreneur and athlete who has combined her passion for humanity with sport. Every opportunity is used to promote the well-being of her fellow man whether it be at home or abroad. A gifted speaker who can inspire you to tears, or better yet action, uses her magnetic energy to promote positive change. Crystal is hard working, committed and her tenacity is evident in many of her successful projects. Working with Crystal will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. “


This is definitely one Chamber speaker event you won’t want to miss.
