Entrepreneur & Business Powerhouse
Kelsey Ramsden was Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneur, ranked #1 by Profit and Chatelaine Magazines in 2012 & 2013. She has founded and run businesses as diverse as construction and children’s toys. As President of Belvedere Place Development, a land development and construction project, she wasn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and strap on some work boots and get down in the dirt. As founder of Spark Play, a monthly play subscription service – as much for parents as for their kids – she lands herself back on the ground. Formerly a wayward student, born of generations of true grit and determination, Kelsey triumphed when she graduated with her MBA from the highly regarded Ivey School of Business. She credits that same grit and determination for helping her overcome a devastating cancer prognosis – a cancer she has since overcome. In her work she balances venom and virtue, book and street smarts, with her belief that imagination and play are powers greater than knowledge.

Athena Leadership is committed to enriching and empowering millennial women and men as leaders. We understand millennial women are interested in a forum to develop genuine relationships, be inspired by insightful speakers with tangible advice, and focus on key issues facing them. They routinely seek out advice on how to find and build their passions all while working in a globally connected world. They want to know how to connect with “their tribe”, how to live and lead an authentic life, how to lean in together, and how to turn adversity into opportunity. We want to help them find all of these answers and more.
