After 11+ years of travelling around the world and doing brand strategy, employment branding, shopper marketing experiences and large-scale events for an agency I decided I no longer wanted to live and work out of a suit case (at least not for someone else’s dream).
In 2012 I took everything I learned and loved about my job, left it and rebranded it under my own name; Grace Lanuza Brand Strategy. Since then, I've launched 8 successful companies and opened up offices in Vancouver, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Manila.
At this point in my career giving back and mentoring young women in business has become a priority. I currently serve as a Mentor for Young Women in Business (both SFU and UBC Chapters), Vancouver Board Of Trade’s Leaders Of Tomorrow, Beedie School of Business at SFU, Forum Women for Entrepreneurs and I volunteer at Junior Achievement Canada where I help bring entrepreneurship and business workshops into Lower Mainland classrooms.
A list and quick description of a few of the companies I've started and launched over the last few years:
Brand Strategy & Consulting Group
Brand Consulting & Strategy Consulting Company.
Brand and Influencers sponsorship brokerage.
Employment branding, corporate training, C-Suite recruiting... recruit in a click!
Canada's 1st CBD quarterly subscription box!
A global co-working pass.
Daily Grace Inspired.
A daily deck of entrepreneurial cards meant to inspire entrepreneurs.
An online course on how to start your Cannabis business.
A mentorship bootcamp designed to propel your goals into action.
Grace is a serial entrepreneur and serial connector and mentor for women in business.
She is consistently partnering, adding value, learning, building, launching and giving back.
She follows-up, jumps on board and always has someone strategic to introduce you to.
I very much value Grace and all the people, conferences and ideas she introduced me to through conversation.
If you get a chance to connect with Grace do it.
Two pieces of advice. Make sure to leave enough time to ask her about all her connections, projects and pursuits. And make sure to ask her who she thinks you should connect with. And be sure to take her up on it.
Thanks Grace. Pleasure as always.
Grace was very knowledgable, insightful, and warm. It was a pleasure talking with her and I plan to talk with her again soon!
