EHF’s 7th Networking Event is coming up on February 9th!

EHF is very excited to have two amazing, knowledgeable and experienced speakers at our next event - Carey Dillen, the president of Yyoga, and Cory Sterling, the founder of Conscious Counsel.

Carey used to be a YYoga Chief Financial Officer and now she is the President of Yyoga - she manages the strategic development and growth of the largest corporately owned yoga company in Canada from regional to national. Carey is also the Chair of the Board of Directors for Sport BC and is on the Board of Directors for BC Athletics.

Carey is results oriented and she is passionate about growing people, profits and projects. Carey will educate us about the main financial lessons she has learnt from the years of working in the wellness industry.

Cory Sterling is a lawyer and entrepreneur who has built a legal practice around working with small business owners, specifically in the health and wellness industries. His firm, Conscious Counsel, approaches legal services in a unique and innovative way.

As a public speaker, Cory has presented at Wanderlust, Rain City Chronicles, the Institute for Holistic Nutrition and the Vancouver Business Network. He is also the founder of Yoga Law and will be presenting at the Victoria and Toronto Yoga Conferences on the topic.

Outside of law, Cory teaches indoor cycling at Equinox and Yyoga in Vancouver and has travelled to 73 countries. Every moment is his favourite.

We'll have a discussion about the major legal issues that entrepreneurs in health and wellness need to be aware of. The goal is to empower entrepreneurs with the information and tools to professionalize and grow their businesses. This is done in a fun and informal way. Some of the questions we'll answer are:

  • When should I incorporate?
  • What is liability and how does it affect my business?
  • Are my staff independent contractors or employees and why does it matter?
  • Why is it important to have agreements that reflect my brand?
  • What is a trademark and why do I need it?
  • How can I use licensing to generate passive income? 

EHF’s 7th Networking Event is a perfect opportunity for all of us to learn more about the tough, complicated but extremely important topics of finance and law from the experts in the industry.
