Welcome to The Canadian Career Development Series

The place in Canada to learn how to effectively manage your career from the convenience of your own desk. Learn from leading authors, thinkers, and professionals as they share their advice on how to take your career to the next level. Moderated by Alan Kearns, Canada’s Career Coach.

Are you a working mother trying to figure out how to do it “all”, whatever that may mean to you? Do you need some time for yourself to think about the next step in your career? momcafé is dedicated to providing a supportive and encouraging environment in which moms seeking information, inspiration and balance in life can come together to share ideas and resources. Join Alan Kearns as he interviews Jill Earthy, Founder of momcafé Network, along with Tasha Richard, Director of Business Development, and Tara Azulay, Regional Owner of momcafé Ottawa.

” A great venue to network, learn and share information and experiences with like-minded people in a friendly and nurturing environment. I always leave momcafé events feeling inspired . . . [and] that I am not alone in my journey as a working mother. ” – Pegi, PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP

Webinar Panelists

Tara Azulay has spent the bulk of her career in the staffing and recruitment industry, moving to Toronto at age 25 to launch Altis Human Resources, the Toronto presence of Ottawa-based staffing firm, Excel Human Resources. With 16 years under her belt connecting employers and candidates, along with coaching, training, and mentoring staff, she is now using these skills to assist a new group of individuals: Ottawa moms. Relocating back ‘home’ in June of this year, Tara is thrilled to be bringing the momcafé network to the Ottawa area.

Tasha Richard has a zest for entrepreneurship and a passion for sharing this with those seeking their own entrepreneurial endeavours. This Cocoa Mama has built a reputation for bringing passion, creativity and an entrepreneurial flair to all that she touches. Others recognize Tasha as a team champion who is committed to driving excellence in all life aspects while at the same time nurturing relationships. Tasha completed her Bachelor of Commerce at McGill University, went on to earn an MBA from Saint Mary’s University and joined Johnson & Johnson Consumer as Brand Manager of several international brands. Most recently, she has partnered with Jill Earthy of momcafe.

Jill Earthy’s passion is connecting women, something she has done informally for as long as she can remember. Wanting to find a way to bring women together, she partnered with Hilary Wooller to found momcafe in 2007. A café like setting seemed ideal to stimulate conversation and to encourage new ideas. Jill is an entrepreneur with an MBA and is also Executive Director of a successful non-profit organization supporting female entrepreneurs all over British Columbia. She lives in Vancouver with her husband and two young daughters.
