Aboriginal BEST Business Entrepreneurship Skills Training Program Overview: RedWAY Media

The RedWAY Media team provides culturally-relevant, innovative, and FUN business and entrepreneurship workshops and training programs. Check out this video of the Aboriginal BEST program graduation dinner and community celebration for 22 grads of our Squamish Nation/North Van BEST class. BEST is coordinated by the CCAE (Canadian Centre for Aboriginal Entrepreneurship) with local hosts and host organizations (like Geena Jackson of the Squamish Nation Small Business Office, as shown in the video). We invite local business champions and program partners to be guest speakers during the course and judges at our ‘Best of the BEST’ competition…thank you to Tamara Goddard (Mahigan Consulting), Louise Granger (North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce), Stewart Anderson (Vancity) and Brian Gillespie (TACC) for being judges that evening, as well as Squamish Nation Chiefs Gibby Jacob and Byron Joseph for your heartfelt speeches encouraging ‘the spirit of entrepreneurship.’ Thanks to BEST grad Clayton Goodfellow for such an amazing video!


Aboriginal BEST Grads and Testimonials: RedWAY Media 2015

Inspiring words from BEST program students and our hosts about the benefits of entrepreneurship training. RedWAY Media owners Kristin and Flavio have delivered Aboriginal BEST (Business Entrepreneurship Skills Training) Programs in over 20 communities across BC since 2007. Clayton Goodfellow – a grad in our Squamish Nation/NorthVan March 2015 BEST class – made these two incredible videos for RedWAY, our lovely host Geena Jackson (from the Squamish Nation Small Business Office), and our provincial coordinator, Bruce Lacroix of the CCAE (www.ccae.ca).

Thank you to all of the students, guest speakers, and host organizations who support each other as we all strive towards personal and professional success. Thank you to the circle of support for RedWAY’s team and our BEST students – all of the elected and hereditary leaders, friends, and family members who support us along our learning journey. Thank you also to our BEST program funders (BC’s Ministry of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation and HRSDC) and socially-responsible business partners (Vancity and Spiritlink Communications), for making this program such a community-based success in “nurturing the spirit of entrepreneurship.”
