Staples Spotlight Speaker Series with Joe Mimran

A few days ago, my good friend sent me some information on an event being held at the new Staples concept store in Toronto. The grand opening was today, and I attended the Joe Mimran keynote event. Joe Mimran is a Former Dragon on CBC's Dragon's Den, and is known for founding a number of established Canadian brands, such as Alfred Sung, Club Monaco, and Joe Fresh. The talk was incredibly entertaining, informative, and inspirational.

The new store looks amazing, and I enjoyed checking out the Staples Studio, which is a membership-based collaborative coworking space for the creative and entrepreneurial community. This was the first event in the weekly Spotlight Speaker Series. You can sign up for upcoming events here.

Note: not sponsored.


  1. Hi! Thanks so much for posting the additional events in the series. However, when I clicked the links, they all had a "sales ended" message. Had you registered some time ago? I must check out Eventbrite more often! Thanks anyway :)

    1. Hi! I only registered a few days ago, so the future events may not be open for registration yet. This has happened to me for other events, so I'd recommend checking back closer to the date. Good luck!!
