Country feel to upcoming meeting
The Feb. 28 meeting of the Okanagan Business Referral Group networking and fundraising event will have an appeal to local country and western music fans.
The guest speaker will be television and radio personality Casey Clarke, a household media name to country music fans.
Clarke has hosted a variety of programs on CMT (Country Music Television) since 1997. I
In 2009, Clarke was named The CMA International Broadcaster of the Year—an award won by only two Canadian broadcasters—and in September 2012 won a Canadian Country Music Award for Country Program of the Year for a show called Employee Of The Week.
Clarke started his own production company in 2008 and currently produces national syndicated radio programs The Casey Clarke Show and The Casey Clarke Country Countdown.
Clarke will share his insights at the Feb. 28 meeting about how to make money and to create a brand in country music.
He will also address an issue that many business developers and entrepreneurs face—the paralysis of fear when starting a new venture.
Net proceeds of this event will be directed to Metro Up Financial Asset & Literacy Foundation, a non-profit organization designed to help low income individuals move forward in life.
The meeting will take place at the Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna, starting at 7 p.m.
