FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR, POCHES & FILS | CO-FOUNDER, CRAYON 15
SPEAKER & CREATOR TEAM-BUILDING CREATIVES
“ Where business meets nonsense.”
Anthony Vendrame is the Founder and CEO of Montreal-based apparel company Poches & Fils. But he is far from being a typical CEO. In fact, there is nothing typical about Anthony at all. What began as a fun, money-making sideline while he pursued a business degree and played college football, quickly became a runaway success that saw him drop out of school and leave his football dreams behind. The lure of sewing irreverent pockets onto t-shirts proved too great.
His total lack of respect for norms as well as a sense of humour honed in the suburbs and improv clubs has been a cornerstone of his company's success.
Today he co-founded Crayon 15, a duo of content creators who have fun subverting codes. Armed with daring, self-mockery and a little irreverence, Anthony Vendrame and his sidekick Simon Dubois pursue their ultimate goal: to monetize their “silliness”. Whether it is to welcome your new employees or stimulate the creativity of your team, online or in person, they will know how to engage your talents.

TOTEM. (Think Outside The Evil Mundane): CREATE YOUR TEAM EMBLEM AND DISCOVER YOUR PEERS THROUGH BRAINSTORMING TECHNIQUES
An engaging team-building workshop during which participants will be asked to create their "team avatar". In addition to generating a very strong sense of belonging, you will have the opportunity to “physically” build your totem: a logo and a brand that belong to you, and that you can use everywhere and anywhere (t-shirt, social media , internal communications, etc.)
