The WNORTH Story
WNORTH is the vision of Heather Odendaal. She is an accomplished entrepreneur, brand builder and an acclaimed event producer in Western Canada. Heather has worked on some of Canada’s largest and most influential events including the Whistler Film Festival, Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival and the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.
In spring 2015, Heather launched the inaugural WNORTH Conference when her pursuit of finding a leadership conference for women on a path to senior executive leadership fell short. The WNORTH Conference is now heading into its 4th year, taking place April 18-20, 2018. Past events have featured speaker from IBM, CISCO, TELUS, Google, PwC and Lyft.
