Walking through the back of Save On Meats and hanging out in the alley with one of his chefs, it struck me how Mark Brand has a genuine rapport with, and knows the names of, his people. That’s pretty impressive for a guy who owns as many businesses as he does. And when he isn’t running those, he finds the time to speak at conventions and notorious events such as TEDxVancouver and Creative Mornings. His most recent challenge was to step out of his comfort zone and speak on the theme of ‘space’. His talk will be available soon on the Creative Mornings Vimeo channel.
