It is that time of year to celebrate the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Program! With a mission to showcase the accomplishments of hundreds of Canadian businesses, the award takes place in the country’s five regions – Pacific (Vancouver), Prairies (Calgary), Atlantic (Halifax), Ontario (Toronto) and Quebec (Montreal), culminating in the National Gala located in Toronto in November. As our team is setting up the first event of the series, we reflect on what this initiative represents for entrepreneurs of Canada.
Stories of Success
What does it take to be an outstanding entrepreneur? Through an independent panel of judges, selected by EY, the candidates and their businesses are evaluated by a series of metrics before the gala itself.
As storytellers, the Media One Creative team follows the candidates closely throughout the year. We deployed journalists and videographers across the country to interview the nominees about their journey to create successful entrepreneurial companies. This year we interviewed 135 finalists across all of the different regions. This material is edited in our studio and presented during the awards ceremony.
The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Program is an M1 Event, which means we curate every aspect of the initiative. Besides creating all the video content and graphics, our Event Management team are onsite to produce the galas in every city. Media One Creative is excited to enter our fourth year producing this program for EY.
We congratulate Geoff Chutter of WhiteWater who was named EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Pacific winner.
