By Jennifer Henczel. What does hockey have to do with business success, you might ask. Apparently more than a little, especially when you consider that major sport teams and their wins on the field are in direct proportion to how successfully they are managed. Which is why, Ryan Walter, famed National Hockey League player, coach and successful businessman will be the guest speaker of honor at the upcoming Fraser Valley Business Network Meetup.
The Fraser Valley Business Network (FVBN) Meetup will be held on July 17, 2013 starting at 4 pm. Location will be the Red 21 Restaurant inside Chances Casino in Abbotsford. The cost is only $5 for FVBN Members and $10 for non-members and includes the reception to follow the speaker event. Proceeds from this event go towards the maintenance, technical costs, materials, and promotional activities of the Fraser Valley Business Network and for the support of future meetups.
This must-attend event is your opportunity to gain leadership and coaching insight from a man who is lauded for his leadership expertise on the field and in the board room. Ryan Walter was a former NHL Man of the Year, Stanley Cup champion, and led Team Canada in 4 World Championships. Walter is also the author of five books and a regular contributor to both online and print magazines. Walter holds a Master of Arts degree in Leadership and Business. He serves on the Hockey Canada Foundation’s Board of Directors and is a member of the Seton Hall Stillman School of Business Leadership Advisory Council.
Currently the President of the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford Heat, Walter won a gold medal at his inaugural Four Nations Cup tournament as head coach of Canada’s National Women’s Hockey Team. He is a former NHL coach, co-founder and president of two start-up companies, a TV hockey analyst, and a hockey adviser and actor for both television and movies. Ryan’s enthusiasm from the page, the screen, the bench, the boardroom, and the podium is contagious as he fulfills his mission to “inspire the hungry spirit!”
His presentation on July 17will address topics such as: “Inner Game,” “Develop Winning Thought Process,” “Understand the Power of our Belief System,” and “Increase Will Power.” This is an excellent opportunity for participants to meet Ryan Walter as well as network with other business owners. Reservations and advance ticket purchase are required at this highly anticipated event.
