Thursday Throwback: @reigniteconf Social Hour Takeover 🔥🏕

Last month SBX had the pleasure of hosting an exclusive first look at what the upcoming reIGNITE Conference in September is going to be like and we can confirm you’re not going to want to endure the FOMO that will come from skipping out on it. Spotted on film: Founders of the Reignite Conference Sara Bentham, Chris Adams, and Paul Larche gave us the goods on why Reignite was created and the many opportunities you will have to leave the day-to-day behind as you explore new strategies, discover growth opportunities, and recharge. Here’s a couple of other mentions they gave a shout out to:

🔸Keynote Speaker @rontite
🔶Canadian Juno Award Winning band performance on night one
🔸On-site heated cabins with indoor bathroom accommodations
🔸All-inclusive food & drink experience
🔸Camp Activities for any and all levels of company and stage of growth
🔸Moments of genuine connection with friends new and old

Head to our link in bio → events to learn more and secure your spot to live the camp life today! SBX is proud to be a supportive partner for Reignite.

SBX does Sailing & Scaling ⛵️⚓️

What a ride! The Sandbox team couldn’t have been more excited to hop onto “It’s All Good” and explore the basics of sailing while enjoying conversations about happenings of business growth and success in our community. It’s not often we get to enjoy our beautiful backyard of Kempenfelt Bay off the SBX patio! It was nothing but smooth sailing 😎

Huge shout out to @cadamscanada Adams Hamilton, @gchbec, and DMZ Innisfil for the incredible experience and continuing to support the growth and scaling of businesses in our region!

How do you show up to lead in your organization?

With multiple personalities, learning styles, and day-to-day functions that need to be met for your business, an effective leader knows the difference between managing and leading. At any time and any stage, opportunities to practice being a leader can be done. Are you working to inspire others to be better? Are you being guided by core values and principles that ring true to who you are? Are you encouraging communication by the way that you engage with others?

Leadership requires many resources, but great balance can be found to create successful outcomes. 🌠

Save this post as a reminder that leadership is more than just telling people what to do.
