Let's Be613.

Inspiration. It’s a beautiful thing—but is it enough? The idea for this event series began to take root after attending countless professional events and panels throughout Ottawa that often left us feeling like we were leaving empty-handed. While many of these events brought together fascinating speakers and provided inspirational moments, we still desperately craved those practical tips and tricks that we could apply to our projects, our work, and our lives. So grew Be613.

We want to bring you practical knowledge from across industries and interests. No topic is taboo (so if you have an idea shoot us a message). Format will vary based on topics—panel discussions, Q&As, workshops, and more.

Meet interesting people, gather those tidbits of learning, and never stop growing. We hope you’ll be at our next event! #Be613


Meet the Julies!
