“Connecting Peterborough’s Entrepreneurs”™
(Powered by FastStart: a partnership between Trent University, Fleming College and the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster*)
The two speakers that will be featured at this month’s E-Connect are:
Michelle Ferreri is well known by her cheeky nickname MF. MF is often described as authentic, wild, fun, innovative and creative. A graduate of Trent University and Loyalist College, Michelle thought genetics would be her career path, but accidentally fell into the television industry.
Her biggest passion of course, is her family and connecting with people. Michelle decided digital storytelling was a career that could allow her to be with her children more. Combining her on air skill with her production knowledge and editing experience, Michelle wanted to blend her passionate work ethic and family life together as an entrepreneur. She now blogs, vlogs (video blog) and provides marketing consulting and training full time.
Born and raised in Ennismore, On, Scott moved to the big city (Peterborough) in his 20’s. He spent time at University of Guelph for Hotel and Food Admin as well as SSFC for Business, but never completed either. He then opened his first restaurant, the Olde Stone Brewing Company when he was 25 years old, followed by a few others: Hot Belly Mama’s (re-constructed), St. Veronus, Brio Gusto, Ritz Deli North and Ashburnham Ale House. Scott is married with one full-time daughter and two other part-time kids that begrudgedly spend time with him. In his free time, he loves to travel to places where he can ride my bike, “which of course makes me hungry, forcing me to enjoy good food, beer and wine in cool places.”
