Meet Your Speakers
The Illogical, Unreasonable Entrepreneur ~ An entrepreneur, coach, author, speaker and intuitive, Leanne walked away from a successful and secure lifestyle, sold up her life in New Zealand after 29 years and moved back to Canada, bought a truck camper and lived in it for 12 months touring with her first book from coast to coast. She wrote her second book while on tour which is due in March. She did all of this guided by—an inner nudge.
As a child, Heather realized she had an obsession with clothing and fashion. Not only did she possess a passion about how clothing looked and fit, but was fascinated by the history of fashion, the process of creating textiles, and how the two work together to create clothing. After graduating from The Academy of Design in Toronto, Heather began her career in fashion wholesale as a sales representative for New York designer Ellen Tracy. She went on to launch her own fashion wholesale agency, representing numerous women's wear collections from Europe, Canada, and the U.S.
Mother of three, Heather now focuses exclusively on her position as Founder and Head Designer of Dotty Dress Studio.
