Series of weekend talks aim to inspire, motivate and encourage

A list of speakers from various walks of entrepreneurship, advocacy and political life makes up this weekend’s BED Talks – an acronym for being, empowering and discovering.

Staged Friday and Saturday (June 15 and 16) by Miss B.C. contestant Ami Muranetz, a Victoria native who now lives in Vancouver, the events are a fundraiser for Cops for Cancer.

Among the speakers offering up a 20-minute chat are environmentalist/author Guy Dauncey, Mayor Dean Fortin, Bellyfit International CEO Alice Bracegirdle, musician and wellness practitioner Shine Kelly and others.

Friday’s schedule runs from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Victoria Event Centre, 1415 Broad St. Tickets are $10.

Saturday’s events go from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Temple Events and Catering, 525 Fort St. A silent auction is ongoing and live music is interspersed between the speakers. An after-party dance with DJ happens from 1 to 4 a.m. Tickets for the night are $25.

Tickets for both nights are available at Lyle’s Place, 770 Yates St. or United Carpet, 3342 Oak St. For more information, visit www.e-hub.ca or call 778-886-6920.
