Creator Connections – IABC Ottawa Season Opener

September 29, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$10 – $30

Kick off the new IABC season at this hybrid fireside chat with two Ottawa-based content creators who will share their tips and insights on how to make the most out of your social media and digital campaigns by building valuable connections with the creator entrepreneur community. Stay on in-person after the discussion for casual networking and catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and celebrate the start of our 2022-2023 season!

Here’s a preview of what to expect:

Doors open at 6:15 pm

6:30 pm – Welcome remarks from IABC Ottawa President, Lauren Doty

6:40 pm – Fireside chat and open Q&A with two local content creators/media personalities:

Yvonne Langen, Taste & Tipple Food Blogger

Yvonne is the cocktail and lifestyle content creator behind Taste & Tipple. Yvonne shares her passion for food and drink with an infectious enthusiasm, authentic voice, and raw humour on her blog and Instagram. She is dedicated to taking the intimidation factor out of cocktails by connecting with aspiring home bartenders, especially women, in a real and relatable way through her Virtual Happy Hour series on Instagram. Her tagline is, “It’s about participation, not perfection.”

Yvonne is a regular guest on regional and national television programs such as CTV Ottawa Morning Live and CityTV’s Breakfast Television. You may have heard her weighing in on food and drink topics on CBC Radio or read her writing in Ottawa Magazine.

Korey Kealey, Real Estate Broker

The centre of the home revolves around the kitchen where Korey has spent most of her career. Professional recipe developer, cookbook author and national food media spokesperson turned her passion for delicious healthy food into an innovative Canadian food business from concept to shelf with Enerjive Inc. Utilizing her extensive relationships in media, traditional public relations & the ever-changing social media landscape, Korey achieved the success that many small brands never see.

Moving into the Ottawa Real Estate market was a natural move after selling Enerjive inc in 2017.

Korey’s brand-focused sales, marketing and communications experience coupled with Liam & Brendan’s 30 years of successful Real Estate trading and investing, allows Kealeygroup to exceed their client’s expectations.

Follow our @kealeygroup lifestyle page to see what Korey is creating in her own kitchen on CTV News at Noon, CTV Ottawa Morning Live and Ottawa at Home Magazine or through www.kitchenkonnected.com

Send in your questions for Yvonne and Korey in advance!

7:30 pm – In-person networking with refreshments
