Award-winning entrepreneur and Dragons’ Den judge Manjit Minhas knows what it takes to defy the odds and thrive in the brewing industry, largely dominated by men.

In this talk, Minhas will share the principles and entrepreneurial values that have led her and her company to rapid success. Minhas is as down-to-earth as she is business-savvy. She will share the “art of the pitch” and the lessons she’s learned as one of Canada’s most successful entrepreneurs including the necessity of embracing change, encouraging innovation and incentivizing disruption at every stage.

Throughout her career, Manjit Minhas has put everything—money, reputation, relationships—on the line…intentionally. But things didn’t always work out as planned. In this illuminating fireside chat from one of the world’s leading entrepreneurs, Minhas openly shares her lived experience and how she has defined and redefined the meaning of success. Being an innovator and trailblazer in any industry takes courage and drive—but also a measured, risk-taking ability. Minhas understands risk better than most. She thinks outside the box, challenges her competitors—behemoth beer companies—and comes out on top.
