SBC May 11th – Bill Cooke, P.Eng., Chair, Sidney Breakfast Club

May 13, 2017

Hi everyone. In continuing with our SBC 25th year anniversary theme, our meeting this month will feature a talk given by our beloved SBC leader, Bill Cooke, P.Eng., Chair, Sidney Breakfast Club. 

Bill is a registered Professional Engineer with over 40 years of experience working in the technology and advanced manufacturing sector for a number of companies and organizations across Canada.  He has been the general manager of two advanced manufacturing companies as well as co-founding and managing two consulting companies since moving to Sidney in 1982.  He joined VIATeC in 1998 working as a project manager for 5 years and then CEO before retiring in 2005 to continue working with start-up and early-stage companies.

On May 11th, as an SBC member since 1993 and volunteer chair since 1997, Bill will lead a discussion celebrating: “A 25 year history of the Sidney Breakfast Club“.

The SBC, founded by Dr. Rick Hudson in 1991/2 started with 20 member companies as a forum for high technology owners to get together.  Known as “the Breakfast Club”, these entrepreneurs of knowledge-based corporations in the region met monthly to discuss areas of common interest and concern.

Join Bill to hear more about the history and future of this group as it continues to grow and contribute to our local community economy. We are expecting some “original” member company participants to join us and share their experiences. This will be a one of a kind and a can’t miss meeting!
