Networking is an essential part of building your career, but sometimes can be the most difficult. Come join us as entrepreneur Grace Lee shares her experiences and knowledge on effective ways to network!

Speaker: Grace Lee

I am a lifelong learner and an opportunist serial venturer. Inspired by a couple who built an orphanage in Kenya and transformed the lives of many needy Ugandan children, I am always creating opportunities for growth and unity. I am part of a Canada-wide project to investigate applications of brain imaging technology to improve healthcare for patients with brain injury, and President of the UBC Postdoctoral Association. Outside of academia, I am co-founder of Krimson Marketing Inc consulting with entrepreneurs on reaching their business growth potential, and I am Chair of Communications for the Small Business Council of the Vancouver Board of Trade. I have a PhD in Neuroscience and I am owner of Graceful Cuisine, where I use my skills as a professional home chef to unite people.
