Lecture: Fleming Talks presents Barbara Stegemann beginning at 6:00 pm at Market Hall (140 Charlotte St., Peterborough, K9H 7E8). Barbara Stegemann’s entrepreneurial vision was formed after her best friend—a soldier—was severely wounded in Afghanistan. Understanding that supporting Afghanistan’s economy was key to building stability for its people, Stegemann created The 7 Virtues Beauty, a company that sources organic oils from countries experiencing turmoil (such as Afghanistan, Haiti the Middle East and Rwanda). Despite addressing complex global matters in her talks, Stegemann uses humour to explain how individuals can use business for good and effect change, both at home and worlds away. Stegemann became known to millions of Canadians when she became the first woman from Atlantic Canada to land a venture-capital deal on the CBC TV show Dragons’ Den for The 7 Virtues Beauty. She went on to become the "Top Game Changer" in the history of the show for creating her social enterprise. Cost: Free. For more information please visit www.faststartfs.ca/events.
