The workshop will be hosted by myself, Lindsay Stead, the owner of a boutique digital marketing agency in Victoria, BC, and instructor of Social Media Marketing at Pacific Design Academy. I have worked with a number of businesses and brands in Canada and globally, and believe in the value of community. My boutique agency specializes in working with not-for-profits, wedding professionals, coaches, and creative entrepreneurs. Growing up, I volunteered with different organizations, but one of my fondest memories was working alongside my grandparents at Santa’s Anonymous. They, along with my parents, were an excellent example of what community is and how we have social responsibility to give back to those around us in order to help build up and create a thriving community. Prior to pivoting into my current career, I spent approximately ten years working with children and teenagers, and I am thrilled to still be able to support the initiatives that matter to, and for, our youth.
