It’s time to let your inner wine lover out! Do you walk into the LCBO, pretend to peruse the shelves, and then just grab the wine bottle with the prettiest label? Do you struggle to identify what exactly you’re tasting when you sip on that wine you adore? If so, this is the Be613 event for you! We’re thrilled to have Sommelier Alison Hussey joining us to take you through a hands-on, two-hour wine basics workshop. We’re leaving the snobbery behind and diving into the practicalities of tasting, buying, and pairing your wines. This isn’t for connoisseurs—it’s for those simply looking to understand a little bit more about what they’re drinking. Leave your keys behind, bring your friends, and get ready to sip on some knowledge. Be in the know.

Whether you’re looking to land your perfect job, start a new business, or find a life partner, your brand plays a crucial role in achieving success. And—let’s be honest—there is no shortage of fluffy self-help talks about the value of personal branding. So we’re switching it up and providing some concrete knowledge. At this month’s Be613 event, we’re thrilled to have one of Marketing Magazine’s 30 Under 30 as our feature speaker. Dave Hale will cover everything from branding fundamentals to execution tactics, and will explain, in detail, the results of his ambitious personal branding experiment on Tinder (we can’t wait for this). Get ready to dive into the fascinating world of personal branding with BeBranded! Be in the know.

Join us for an evening of learning, networking, and fundraising at BeEngaging!

Did you hit up Kontinuum at the Lyon LRT station this past summer? Or maybe you’re already counting down the days to Beau’s Oktoberfest? Without knowing it, you’ve probably enjoyed a wide range of experiential marketing campaigns in the last few years. BeEngaging will bring together a group of panelists that have used experiential marketing to engage their audiences in very different ways. Whether it’s to raise awareness and funds for an issue, engage the public through interactive artwork, or increase brand awareness, learn about their experiential marketing successes and failures at BeEngaging.

In addition to the panel discussion, BeEngaging will be raising funds for three amazing local organizations:

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa

Operation Come Home

The Ottawa Skateboard Association

Food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the event, with a portion of proceeds going directly to the above-mentioned organizations. We're thrilled to be partnering with Beau's All Natural Brewing Co. and Top Shelf Distillers for our onsite bevvies, so get ready to sip on cocktails and ice cold beers all evening-long!

Food and beverage purchases will be CASH ONLY.

A portion of all ticket sales will be donated as well, so snap yours up before they're all gone!
