SPEAKER "Hustler to CEO: How I built my brand" (June 4th, 2020)

Alicia Ott is Co-Founder of Bee Savvy Honey (@beesavvyhoney) and Founder of her newest endeavor Our Hive (@ourhiveboxes) which is the first ever subscription box to connect retail shops with top Canadian makers, designers and artisans.

Bee Savvy Honey is an Ottawa-Valley based business founded and co-led by wife and husband team, Alicia and Matthew Ott. They are known in the area for being both beekeepers and the makers of all their products. They pride ourselves on being involved in every step of the creative process, from working with their bees while harvesting our quality honey and beeswax, to hand pouring each body balm and lotion bar.

What started as a side-hustle making lip balms on their stove has turned into a six-figure fairytale with a warehouse that can’t keep their famous lotion bars in stock. They continue to have success at every artisan show they attend and have their products available coast to coast across Canada.
