Jim Button - Build a Village

Branding Matters

This episode of Branding Matters is a little different. The conversation takes a bit of a detour away from branding and veers into more of a spiritual direction. The reason being is that just over 4 years ago, my guest was given one year to live. But against all odds, this unicorn is still here and living what he describes as “a life with purpose.” His name is Jim Button, and he is the Co-Founder of one of Calgary’s favourite breweries - Village Brewery. A true leader in marketing and community building, Jim’s passion for community investment has earned him impressive accolades which include a philanthropy award from the Canadian Association of Fundraising Professionals, TWO “Top 40 Under 40” awards with Avenue Magazine, and Community Builder of the Year award from the Alberta Small Brewers Association, just to name a few. I invited Jim to be a guest on my show today to discuss why he thinks it takes a village to build a brand. I also wanted to discuss Jim’s new fundraising program that focuses on the mental health of kids living with cancer. 💥IF YOU WANT HELP GETTING YOUR CLIENTS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR BRAND,  REACH OUT TO ME ON SOCIAL AT BRANDING_BADASS OR EMAIL ME AT JGOODSON@GENUMARK.COM

41 - Tracey & Jim Button

The Kondrat Podcast

This week returning guest Jim Button and his wife Tracey join us to discuss how their family has faced Jim’s journey with cancer, and the legacy they hope to leave for the benefit of those suffering with and survivors of paediatric cancer.Jim was our very first episode on Let’s Meet For a Beer, and 40 episodes later the legend returns. This time around Jim is joined by his wife Tracey and in addition to learning about Tracey’s early life and how the two of them came together, we also learn some unexpected things from Jim’s past including the surprising story of spending a year as a welder, a job he had to lie about his qualifications to get.Tracey and Jim share the struggles their family faces along their journey with cancer. Jim tells us about “prescribed beast before date” originally given by his doctors that they’ve long since passed, and that after three and a half years he still never really knows what’s around the corner for him. Being diagnosed with a terminal illness is difficult for those you care about, so Jim and Tracey open up about their coping mechanisms like what they call “gallows humour,” and how important it has been to have the right supports in place for their kids who are facing this together at a very formative age.We also hear about the legacy that Jim and Tracey are hoping to leave as they tell us about a lofty goal - to raise 5 million dollars for a research chair in paediatric psychosocial oncology and survivorship. Huge strides have been made in paediatric oncology and today roughly 80% of kids who are diagnosed with cancer overcome it. However, without the resources available to many adult survivors of cancer these kids can often be left struggling to continue their lives their same way as kids who haven’t been impacted by the disease. Jim and Tracey recognized how lucky they were to have that support, and when they learned the same opportunities weren’t available to children it was clear to them that there was a need for them to help fulfill.Let’s Meet For A Beer!Alberta Beer Festivals: website | twitter | instagramJim Button: blog | twitter | instagram | TEDx TalkContribute to The Chair In Paediatric Psychosocial Oncology and Survivorship

01 - Jim Button, Luke Harford

The Kondrat Podcast

This episode we're joined by Jim Button of Village Brewery and later by Luke Harford of Beer Canada.Jim Button says that he was lucky to learn early on that he was a bridge, or a conduit. He takes pride in the fact that he is the one to connect people, which is why he always "knows a guy." With that in mind, it makes sense that Jim is one of the masterminds behind Village Brewery, and as he goes on to tell us, beer isn't just a social lubricant, it is a currency of its own. Later in the interview, Jim opens up about his journey with cancer, and how his blog Gather With Jim has helped him and others in their journey.In the second half of this episode, Luke Harmon of Beer Canada discusses his tenured history with the organization, the goals of Beer Canada, and the surprising fact that cheese pairs better with beer than wine! "It's an exciting time for beer," in no small part due to the work that Luke and his regional partners do to make time to answer questions for any brewer who calls, whether they're a member or not.letsmeetforabeer.comalbertabeerfestivals.comvillagebrewery.comgatherwithjim.combeercanada.com
