What do a social impact entrepreneur, night club owner, and prominent blogger all have in common?

They all took chances. Major, major chances. And now they reap the rewards by living life on their terms.

After work on November 26th, we’re presenting Real Talk, the first of a monthly panel discussion with past Notable Award Winners and top entrepreneurs.

Join a collection of Toronto’s most forward-thinking young professionals (YPs) as we host you, Notable-style, inside First Canadian Place, one of Toronto’s most esteemed professional buildings, and kick-off the launch of Real Talk  in the FCP Gallery.

Real Talk brings YPs together to give them a platform to ask real, deep, and thought-provoking questions to successful young entrepreneurs so they can discover the answers they’ve been looking for in their own careers.

Moderated by CEO and Founder of Notable, Julian Brass – a Certified Yoga Instructor and specialist on entrepreneurship – the evening will explore the lives of past Notable Awards winners and offer insight into the secrets of their success.


The evening will kick-off with a brief welcome and deep-dive on how our Founder/CEO Julian Brass has finally found true balance in his life after seven years of building Notable. Then he will moderate our incredible panel of previous Notable Award winners.

Some of this month’s panelists will be:

Steve Georgiev; partner and founder of one of Toronto hottest nightlife groups John Doe Group. Steve has brought us great concepts such as EFS, Addisons Residence and the newly opened OMAW. Steve will speak to starting and running a multi-million dollar company, managing multiple businesses and how to turn a small passion into an extremely lucrative career.


Marta Tryshak; The founder and curator of one of Canada’s most influential and reputable lifestyle blogs, With Love Gabrielle, as well as The Youth Society. Marta was named Marketing Magazines Top 30 Under 30. In addition, she is in the process of launching the social media agency TryMus Group. Hear from the Queen of personal brand and learn how to make yours work for you. Marta will speak to strategic partnerships and the benefit of having multiple projects on the go (and how to manage it while still having fun).


Najeeb Khan; is a Canadian Entrepreneur and the founder of 1ForHunger, and recognized by American Express as one of the 45 “2014 Emerging Innovators,” across Canada, the United States and Mexico. Najeeb has started his first business at the age of 19 and has no intention of slowing down. Najeeb will be able to speak directly to the difficulties of starting a business, what it means to start young and how to get past your initial fears and just GO!


As always, we’ll be keeping it Notable with a cocktail reception following the panel discussion. Guests, moderators, and VIPs can mingle among art curated by Bau-Xi Gallery, enjoy drinks and h’doeuvres, and help each other reach new professional heights.
