The Boss Babe Brunch celebrates rockstar women behind Toronto’s entrepreneur community

Entrepreneurs and small business owners thrive off of connection. It’s true that when we support one another, we can grow stronger together.

The Boss Babe Brunch brings together a community of rad business owners and soon-to-be business owners to provide a space for guests to put the business to the side and focus on taking time for themselves in a meaningful way.

After three months of planning, the inaugural Boss Babe Brunch took place July 22 from 11am – 1pm at The Drake Sky Yard for a relaxing, inclusive social brunch. Guests mingled over welcome mimosas, savoured drool-worthy eats ready for the ‘gramming, and heard unique insights from special guest Lauren McPhilips of This Renegade Love.

The goal was to create an unforgettable experience that allowed guests to be present and enjoy their Sunday morning, while building brand awareness for the Boss Babe Brunch and its partners. Sequoia Content Studio managed the event production from ideation to day-of execution to post-event wrap. We also managed all social media marketing, including paid campaigns, and influencer public relations.

The event itself was a hit, despite heavy rain for the majority of the morning. Guests were able to authentically network with one another without pressure, while enjoying an open bar and The Drake’s unbelievable scones. They were then treated to a family-style brunch of chicken and waffles, scrambled eggs, and fresh salad before enjoying a fireside chat with Lauren.

The event was capped with a champagne toast to celebrate everyone at the table that morning, and all the incredible things they’ve accomplished.

Thank you to Alice at Alice Xue Photography for capturing the morning!

I brought my West Coast soul to the city of Toronto in order to build the creative empire of my dreams. In 2018, I started Sequoia Content Studio, a boutique PR and content agency that supports lifestyle businesses not only tell their story, but ensure it actually gets heard. Just two weeks before the launch, I was honoured to be named PR in Canada's PR Person of the Year. Life has been non-stop ever since.

I live boldly, believe in raw honesty, and value unapologetic vulnerability. Living with depression, I've always had a voice in my head yelling at me, telling me I'm not enough and my work isn't enough. This voice is all too common for creatives. So I'm dedicated to creating authentic content and experiences that empower young creatives to build meaningful businesses, and meaningful lives.

Isn't it time you start living #thesequoialife?
