Inspire Breaky Series
Inspire Breaky’s feature Women of Inspiration who lead, inspire and motivate! They will share their journey, barriers they faced, how they have overcome challenges, and who they lean on for support. Then our floor will be opened for a Q and A as we talk candidly with our speakers about what keeps them up at night, owning the spotlight, and what keeps them motivated!

Featured Speaker: Shannon Collins – 2018 Women of Inspiration – Mompreneur
Founder and CEO, Chair Flair | Event Core @ChairFlairAB
Shannon has a diploma in Journalism from SAIT and my Degree in Communications and Marketing from UOFC.
I worked as the Director of Communications and Marketing for a popular private golf course for 13 years. During my time working full time at the club I started my first company in 2006, Chair Flair (http://chairflair.ca). I am proud to say I started this company without incurring any debt and it has operated since in the black. It wasn’t until I had my second daughter that I retired from the club and pursued Chair Flair full time.
I have grown Chair Flair from a small business out of my basement doing 20-30 weddings a year, to now having 6 full time employees and over 20 seasonal workers and we do over 500 weddings a year!
In September of 2016 I started my second company, Event Core. (http://event-core.ca) I am the majority owner and share the company with my 2 partners. Our philosophy is “power through partnerships”. Or mission is to create a community of partnerships that is beneficial to both event vendors and as well our clients, those planning events. We believe we are changing the event industry through positive collaboration and working together instead of against one another. We have seen enormous success and have over 50 members within the first 6 months.
A “Woman of Inspiration” is someone who everyday, in all areas of life, provides an excellent example to girls and women around them. It is someone who leads by example and is a role model and a mentor to those around her. This means helping to instill in these girls and young women a sense of confidence, self esteem, and health in body, mind and spirit. This is a woman who, in their work and play, provides a positive example, challenging negative gender stereotypes and helping to empower girls and young women. How? By “walking the walk” and providing positive, healthy examples they can follow. It is a woman who cares about her community and strives to find ways to give back where she can and not look for recognition in return. The women who inspire me most are the ones who give without even thinking about it. They are pillars of our community and it is through their strong moral foundation, their generosity, and consistent commitment to challenging themselves and those around them that makes them women I look up to and aspire to be in my daily life.
