DEAR BRAINERY FRIENDS,
DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 SITUATION, WE HAVE DECIDED TO TEMPORARILY SUSPEND OUR EVENTS. WE HOPE YOU ARE STAYING IN GOOD HEALTH AND KEEPING YOUR CONNECTIONS STRONG. WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN SOON!
WITH LOVE, THE BRAINERY TEAM

We're a group of engaged volunteers in Ottawa Canada who invite fun and interesting people, just like you, to give vibrant talks, forums and hands-on workshops to our local community! 

We do this because we love bringing people of all ages face-to-face to learn, share, laugh, challenge and lift. 

We're all about inspiring togetherness, sparking curiosity and feeling ALIVE!  Come and check us out! 


Upcoming Events! 

As a non-profit, we host a diverse array of inspiring talks, forums and hands-on workshops for all ages, from knowledgable people ranging from health to career to money to relationships. We host our events in an open and welcoming space in Ottawa's New Edinburgh neighbourhood. We invite you to show up and learn something new or perhaps re-learn something old!

We love to show off our guests, and the positive impact they have on our community.

"The Mysteries of Baroque Music...DEmystified" with Olivier Henchiri, lead cellist and founder/artistic director of the Ottawa Baroque Consort.
"I loved the mixed media approach used by Olivier. He spoke to us directly, used slides, musical excerpts and live music (cello and oboe) to keep us involved and alert." 
"This talk was so engaging, interactive and interesting!" 

"5 Steps to Feeling Vibrant, Confident and Energized" with Laura Parsons 

"Financial Planning for Every Age" by Karim Gwardari and attorney Jacques Cote' 
"So enjoyable!" 
"Thank you for being so welcoming!"
"I have to admit that I was skeptical coming into a room with men in suits but was pleasantly surprised and very much appreciated that Karim tailored the presentation to the attendees. Excellent presentation!"
"I wanted to share that today made a difference for those who attended. You should be proud for organizing this session. I really believe you strengthened and educated those that attended."
