Jessica Schacht is Co-Founder of Ampersand Distilling Company, One of the Top Craft Distilleries in BC - Vancouver - Canada’s Podcast

November 20, 2020

Jessica Schacht is an artist and entrepreneur based on Vancouver Island in the Cowichan Valley. As a co-founder of Ampersand Distilling Company she manages sales and communications and has helped develop the award winning recipes that make Ampersand one of the top craft distilleries in British Columbia. Jessica has found many ways to combine her passion for art & entrepreneurship. In 2017 she started a cocktail column for the Cowichan Valley Voice called "History Glass" exploring the origins of classic cocktails. Jessica is also a public speaker on transferrable skills and entrepreneurship and has spoken at the University of Victoria, Pacific Opera Victoria's Artist Development Program, and the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance Summit.

Ampersand Distilling Co. is owned and operated by the Schacht family, whose five-acre organic farm and craft distillery is situated in the Cowichan Valley, British Columbia. The company was born out of Jeremy and Jessica Schacht’s love for craft cocktails and sparked to life when Jeremy and his father Stephen – both trained engineers – combined their knowledge of science and traditional distilling techniques to produce hand-crafted spirits with exceptional flavours. Together with Jeremy’s mother Ramona Froehle-Schacht – an avid organic farmer – the family fuse their individual passions into a thriving business whose high-quality organic spirits have become staples in the industry and home bars across North America.

Ampersand’s name pays homage to the grammatical logogram that forges connections across vast concepts. The subtle symbol signifies a powerful collaboration between the Schacht family, each of whom lends their personal passion and skills to the business. Ampersand brings together science and art, representing the craft of distilling spirits; technology and tradition, uniting innovative methods and old-world distilling styles; ingredients and techniques, allowing pure wild-harvested botanicals and B.C.-grown wheat to shine; and family and friends, who can share the simple joy of sipping a well-made spirit.

Jane Stoller Gives Insights on Transitioning from Corporate Career Climber to Global Declutter Coach - Vancouver - Canada’s Podcast

Jane Stoller Gives Insights on Transitioning from Corporate Career Climber to Global Declutter Coach - Vancouver - Canada’s Podcast

November 16, 2020

Jane Stoller is a Swiss-Canadian life-biz organizer, speaker, author and university instructor whose passion is in decluttering spaces and organizing business processes. Jane wrote her first book in 2016 to help friends get more organized. It ultimately gained international attention, and this allowed Jane to turn her passion into a profitable business, Organized Jane.

Stoller’s global reach has helped thousands gain clarity and get organized with her critically acclaimed books, Organizing For Your Lifestyle and Decluttering for Dummies (Wiley Publishing). Additionally, Stoller has created a sought-after Business Booster course that helps business owners cut through the clutter and gain back their time, and has been featured on numerous talk shows, podcasts and magazines.

With a proven track record in both the corporate and entrepreneurial realms, Jane has spent the last decade helping unprofitable businesses become profitable. Not only do Jane’s strategies impact her clients’ work environments, but their personal lives as well, as all organizing processes start with the closet. Her mantra? "The closet sets the mood for the entire day. It’s also an ideal place to practice and hone organizing skills that can transfer over to the rest of your organizing goals. Choosing clothes from a laser-focused closet, you’re well on your way to a structured, system-driven office space."

When Stoller sets down her pen and paper, she puts on her teaching hat. Stoller lectures at Vancouver Island University in Canada for part of the year, helping students learn management skills.

Jane also aims to give back to businesses and organizations in her local communities through her passion for education. She is doing pro-bono work for ONE TO ONE, A Children’s Literacy Program, and assisting indigenous children with their schooling on Vancouver Island and the Sea to Sky corridor.

Stoller currently resides in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

November 13, 2020

G. Scott Paterson is a Toronto-based technology and media venture capitalist who has been active for 28 years in the investment banking industry.

Paterson received his start in the investment industry in 1985 at Dominion Securities Pitfield working at the firm as a retail broker. Paterson quickly ranked #1 in commissions of all the brokers with three years or less of service at the Firm. Paterson was recruited by Richardson Greenshields in 1987 and in 1990 was invited to the then recently formed Midland Walwyn where he cut his teeth as a senior investment banker for four years.

Paterson focused on banking technology and media companies while at Midland Walwyn becoming the firm's most productive banker (as measured by fees generated). In April 1995, Paterson was recruited to Yorkton Securities where he led the firm's transformation from a mining-focused brokerage firm to Canada's leading technology investment bank focused on technology, internet, biotechnology and film & television. Paterson served as CEO of Yorkton Securities from 1998 to 2001.

Paterson now focuses his business attention on his Board and leadership roles at FutureVault (https://www.futurevault.com), Symbility Solutions, Lionsgate Entertainment and The QYOU.

Paterson also takes time to contribute to philanthropic endeavors. In 1997, he co-founded the Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation which launched its Kids, Cops & Computers program which provides brand new laptop computers to financially disadvantaged children in Toronto. Paterson serves as Chairman for the Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation.

Paterson has also established several bursaries at each of Ridley College and Western University. In addition, in 2000, Paterson donated $1 million to Western to build the G Scott Paterson Biotechnology Wing at the medical school.
