|Cathy Demers, an award winning entrepreneur, is an invaluable resource to entrepreneurs and small business owners.|
Author and Mentor, Motivational Resources
There are a lot of coaches and mentors out there who, while they offer assistance and information, haven't really walked a mile, let alone a thousand miles, in the shoes of small business owners. Cathy has. She knows what it's like.
After completing a university Degree in Economics, Cathy went on to amass a combined 20 years in business development from Microsoft, IBM, and as co-founder of The Electric Mail Company, Inc. This company was successfully listed as a stock exchange traded company while Cathy served as President and CEO.
Recognized as an expert by her peers, Cathy has won the Canadian Woman Entrepreneur Award (Western Canada), the Business in Vancouver Top 40 Under 40 Award (for which she has slight regret she no longer qualifies), and has twice been nominated for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Author and mentor to small business owners, Cathy has been a keynote speaker for diverse groups including the British Columbia Ministry of Small Business and the Canadian National Research Council.
Cathy lives on the border between Canada and the United States, in the sunny beach community of Boundary Bay BC with her happy beach dog and her beloved husband. She enjoys traveling the world, RV'ing and fishing, as well as contributing to her local community.
