Jewelry Designer, Entrepreneur
The Rachel Mielke talks on embedding creativity in work culture explore how she came to start her own jewelry line. The speaker is based out of Saskatchewan, Canada, where she established Hillberg & Berk in 2007. By the age of 29, the designer and entrepreneur was invited to the Pre-Oscar Luxury Gifting Lounge, participated in the Toronto Fashion Incubator's press and buyers breakfast, the Canadian Country Music Awards and the Geminis, among other events.
In addition to multiple magazine features and television appearances, the speaker has won many awards for her small business and entrepreneurial efforts. After appearing on Canada's version of Dragons Den, she partnered with business mogul W. Brett Wilson. The marketing and branding guru's jewelry line is considered one of the most successful in Canada. As evidenced in the Rachel Mielke talks, her work as CEO of Hillberg & Berk involves infusing creativity into everything she does.
