Courage, Wisdom, Success 2015: A Balanced Plate with Anna Olson

Courage, Wisdom, Success annual speaker series is all about success and balance. We invite speakers with topics that focus on business success and life balance. It takes courage to step out into business, wisdom to build that business to success, and balance to bring it all together in a way that equals joy! RWN strives to help women reach all of their goals. Our CWS event will help you achieve and celebrate your goals.

About Anna

Culinary Master | Host of Bake with Anna Olson

Celebrity chef Anna Olson is host of Food Network Canada’s Bake with Anna Olson, which follows on the heels of her successful other programs, Sugar and Fresh with Anna Olson. Her culinary philosophy is based on a common-sense approach to cooking and baking, respecting the ingredients and the technique, and enjoying sharing with others through food. Whether demonstrating and teaching her cooking methods to others, or sharing a keynote on topics such as the importance of eating local, Olson never fails to impress.

Olson took her love of cooking from a personal passion to a professional career. After achieving a degree in Political Studies from Queen’s University, and a brief stint working in the banking world, she enrolled in the culinary management program at Johnson & Wales University.

Using food as her creative medium, Olson starts with ingredients that sound delicious, then works her way back, creating the components within the recipe body to create a yummy result. Recipe development is one of her great accomplishments, with seven successful cookbook publications to her name, including Back to Baking: 200 Timeless Recipes to Bake, Share and Enjoy; Fresh with Anna Olson: Seasonally Inspired Recipes to Share with Family and Friends; and In the Kitchen with Anna: New Ways with the Classics.


Special Guest
