Business By the Book is a monthly event where business leaders come out to share their wisdom, experience and faith, empowering you to learn and grow

Business By The Book happens the first Wednesday of every month. People from the business community come to be inspired and empowered by amazing leaders who fearlessly share their triumphs and tribulations and how their faith in God has positively impacted their personal and business lives. It’s a great place to connect with others over a quick lunch while getting equipped by some of the best leaders in the marketplace. Everyone is welcome.



Kevan Dobsin

Founder, Designer Ceremonies

Keynote Speaker, March 1st 12:00 PM

Law Courts Inn Restaurant

Kevan spent 19 years as a business development executive for a number of Enterprise Software and Technology companies in the Lower Mainland working with international clients in North and South America, the UK, Australia, South Africa and the Middle East. His ability to excel at complex relationship sales and collaborate across multiple teams and departments allowed him to consistently achieve revenue targets while serving in various Sales, Sales Management, Marketing and Business Development roles.

Recently, Kevan left his tech career to pursue another passion, along with his wife Wanda, performing weddings and providing relationship coaching and mentoring to engaged couples. What started as an occasional ceremony performed for friends and referrals grew over 15 years into a full time opportunity. In 2015, Kevan and Wanda founded Designer Ceremonies and The Marriage Circle to help couples mark the biggest day of their lives and provide tools to support lifelong success in their marriages.

Kevan and Wanda have been married 29 years and have two children with a new grandchild expected in March 2017. They enjoy family life, music, tennis, skiing, football (yes Wanda can throw a tight spiral) and love waterskiing every chance they get. If you own a ski boat they (Kevan) would love to join you.
