Turnaround Artists

  by BLC Admin on June 11, 2013

The next session of The Burgundy Luncheon Club – the last before we break for the summer – is Friday, June 21st at The Terminal City Club in Vancouver from 12:00 noon to 1:45 pm.

We will be highlighting three people who are involved, in one way or another, in “turnaround situations”. Tim Louis will talk about his efforts to turn around the fortunes of Vancouver’s left-wing COPE civic election machine; Jamie Biggar will talk about his efforts to turn around what appears to be general apathy among young voters across Canada; and Province sportswriter Ed Willes will look into the dismal record of Vancouver’s pro sports teams and see if there’s any hope of us shaking our reputation of whiners, divers, losers and underachievers.

This event will be sold out. Seating is limited to 40 people. Reservations are required – contact details are below.
