Grounds for Coffee

Grounds for Coffee is a Sponsor of Leading Moms 2017.

Grounds for coffee was a child of the ‘90s – minus the jelly shoes. In 1992, our President and Founder, Dan Hilton, decided to make a 180-degree turn in his career: from banking to baking. He started Grounds for Coffee in 1993, as Vancouver’s coffee culture was beginning to pick up steam, and settled into the business of developing a knock-out cinnamon bun recipe from scratch.And that’s exactly what he did. Nearly a quarter-century later, Grounds for Coffee sells its cinnamon buns, which are still made by hand with locally-sourced ingredients, to hundreds of locations across B.C. and Alberta.

We are committed to providing the finest-quality food and beverages for our customers, and a cozy neighborhood haven in which to enjoy them. We’re also committed to maintaining a happy and healthy team of employees, which is why we’ve built exceptional employee benefits into our business.

skoah

skoah is a Sponsor of Leading Moms 2018.

Personal training for your skin is “what skoah does” and represents skoah’s comprehensive approach to skin care. The aim of personal training for your skin is to provide customers with an effective, easy-to-understand skin care program that generates lasting results. 100% Canadian, all skoah products are made and produced in Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia.

simply powerful skin care

When it comes to skin care there is the constant debate of natural products versus science-based products. skoah®’s skin care products are more nature than science, but take the best from both. They are more natural than a lot of ‘natural’ product lines, devoid of low quality substitutes and loaded with top quality ingredients. The base oil in skoah creams is polysilane, a highly refined olive oil, rather than the frequently used petroleum by-products. skoah products also contain botanical extracts, natural minerals, bio-actives, organic compounds and powerful active ingredients – letting nature help to protect and nourish your skin.

Eaton Arrowsmith

Eaton Arrowmith is a Sponsor of Leading Moms 2018.

At Eaton Arrowsmith we teach our students a series of exercises to help them strengthen their brains and address the cognitive weaknesses that cause their specific learning difficulties.

All of our schools operate on the principle of neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to be strengthened over time with targeted training. This sets us apart from other learning intervention programs. Traditionally, a student who struggled with handwriting, for example, would learn to use a keyboard or be given more time to write tests.

We don’t teach students to work around their difficulties; we help them address them.

Over a 35-year history, Arrowsmith graduates have returned to public and private schools with an increased ability to learn. Our students go on to complete university degrees, find employment in their chosen fields, and pursue their dreams.
