HAVE YOU HERD??

A BIT OF BACKGROUND ABOUT YAKFEST!

YakFest was created in the pandemic winter of 2020 to connect the dots between Amazing, Strong & Inspired women, making the world a warmer and more connected place. Part book club, part girls' night out - all awesome.


YakFest was the brainchild of a multi-media project by author Jacqueline Carmichael. A longtime journalist, publisher and event producer, she realized she was interviewing some pretty amazing and interesting women for publications like The Dallas Morning News, Smart Business, The Edmonton Sun and Entrepreneur Magazine. She dreamed of a book to tell the stories, then revived the  project to bring them to other women. One story at a time! 

Have You Herd? We choose the Yak for our mascot: She is sturdy, nurturing - and we like to {yak}! 

And EVERYONE needs a herd!

"I'm obsessed with seeing women encourage, support and empower other women.

It's my favourite.

We need more of it."
