Power in Partners

In a world where collaboration is one of the main tools to move our community forward, it's exciting to see the Power in Partners event return to Kelowna. 
Founded by Fred Sarkari, the event brings together some of our community's most influential minds who will be sharing their success in business. 
The event will be structured as a number of live candid interviews, and is held at the Laurel Packinghouse on October 22nd.
"This event is all about creating results in your business. Our goal is for you to walk away knowing exactly what you have to do to go from point A to point B in your business.
Every speaker, interview, and panel will be focused around specific learning take-aways that can be implemented in your business.
We will be exploring the truth of their lives that happens behind closed doors. The Good, Bad, and Ugly of their growth and journey.
This event is about building effective partnerships. When we create the right partnerships, we lay the foundation of a community."  ~ Fred Sarkari

I love creating songs, which have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years, I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, and others.

Originally from Scotland, I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years. My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).

In 2014, I was elected to Kelowna City Council. 

Opinions are my own, and don't represent the City of Kelowna, Festivals Kelowna or Creative Okanagan.
