New in 2017! 

The Business Before Nine breakfast series replaces eggs n' icons as a go-to opportunity for business professionals to network and stay informed. 

Each event will feature a networking period with coffee, plated breakfast service and a keynote presentation from a high-caliber speaker. 


Guest Speaker: David Segal, Founder of Mad Radish Inc.


A decade after launching DavidsTea, the popular Canadian chain that brought specialty tea into the mainstream, Ottawa-born David Segal is now determined to redefine Canadians’ ideas about fast food.

David Segal has launched the first two Mad Radish locations in Ottawa, one in the heart of downtown at the corner of Albert and Metcalfe streets, the other near Bank Street and Fifth Avenue in the Glebe.

“Diet is one of the biggest health issues of our time,” he said. “Someone needs to make the investments in time, money and energy to really change the fast-food model, and we intend to do that in Canada.”

The former tea magnate is taking his new mission seriously. The Mad Radish menu features a dozen salads as well as a few soups and other dishes, all heavy on greens such as kale, spinach and cabbage, with fresh, locally sourced chicken occasionally added to the mix.
Come hear this celebrated entrepreneur's effort to launch a fresh food revolution.
