The event is being promoted by Coastal Community Credit Union, which will be donating all ticket sale proceeds to the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island.

Zhexembayeva, according to an event press release, is a business owner, educator, speaker and author specializing in reinvention. She will talk about trends driving the speed and scale of change and about best practices to not only survive change, but build competitive advantage at the same time.

“The current speed and scale of change is unprecedented, and is something we want to help Islanders better understand,” said Allyson Prescesky, senior manager of community experience and communications at Coastal Community Credit Union, in the release. “This is a great opportunity for business owners, community leaders, and really anyone who wants to prepare themselves for change and learn how reinvention fits into the mix.”

The release notes that Zhexembayeva has been a consultant with companies including Coca-Cola, L’Oréal and many others, helping to reinvent products, processes, and leadership practices.

Wednesday’s talk is at 7:30 p.m. at the Port Theatre. Tickets, $20, are available at http://porttheatre.com.
