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.




Matt Choquette

Keynote Speaker, November 2nd 12:00 PM

Drugs, hard liquor, and crime once defined Matt Choquette’s life.  He was heading straight for disaster, and he knew it.  Too proud to listen – or take advice from others, Matt turned to the Bible and a dramatic change took place.

Now after a successful 32-year career with the Ministry of Transportation, which led to overseeing multi-million dollar transportation projects, Matt Choquette owns one of the most celebrated restaurants in the city.  Named by the Vancouver Sun as “One of the Top 15 Patio Restaurants in Vancouver”, Matt and his eldest daughter run Beatniks Bistro in Fort Langley.

Come hear this incredible story of transformation, faith, and the life of Matt Choquette.
