Meet Kelsey Ramsden – an award winning entrepreneur and media superstar. Watch as she shares her secrets to success, her journey to running several million dollar companies – and how she feels a business isn’t just a path to profits. It’s who you are.
Kelsey Ramsden is Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneur, Entrepreneur Magazine writer, ranked #1 by Profit and Chatelaine Magazines in 2012 & 2013. She has founded and run businesses as diverse as construction and children’s toys. As President of Belvedere Place Development, a land development and construction project, she wasn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and strap on some work boots and get down in the dirt. As founder of Spark Play, a monthly play subscription service – as much for parents as for their kids – she lands herself back on the ground. Formerly a wayward student, born of generations of true grit and determination, Kelsey triumphed when she graduated with her MBA from the highly regarded Ivey School of Business. She credits that same grit and determination for helping her overcome a devastating cancer prognosis last year – a cancer she has since overcome. In her work she balances venom and virtue, book and street smarts, with her belief that imagination and play are powers greater than knowledge. Connect with Kelsey on Twitter: @kelseyramsden
