Capital Direct I Income Trust was proud to be the presenting sponsor at this year's BCBusiness - Top 100 Event, which recognizes British Columbia's business leaders. The unrivaled networking event has been connecting, motivating, and inspiring B.C.'s top business leaders for more than 25 years.
This year's event had a very special guest: David Foster, a native of Victoria, one of the most successful music producers in history and the founder of the David Foster Foundation. What a pleasure it was to hear all his incredible stories, and learn about his life experiences. He demonstrated that even with bad grades at school, if you have drive, passion and the right work ethic, you can achieve any goal you set. The David Foster Foundation is a wonderful platform for David to give back to society and over 25 years has provided millions of dollars to Canadian families with children undergoing life-saving organ transplants.
