Devon Brooks defined a new market category when she co-founded Blo, the world first and largest blow dry bar chain. Born from her second-year university project, the company spans four countries, with 90+ locations, and has collaborated with international mega-brands like Mattel, Guess, Topshop and Gwenyth Paltrow. The genius Blo concept sparked what quickly became the fastest growing category in the beauty business. 

PROFIT Magazine named her 1 of the 30 most fabulous entrepreneurs in Canada and was awarded Business in Vancouver's 2017 'Top Forty Under 40'. She was the youngest-ever mentor to join Futurpreneur, Canada’s leading youth mentorship program, and now sits on its board of directors. Her story has been published by McGraw-Hill into Canadian business school curriculum. 

She's built a reputation for herself by challenging the status quo. After a decade of supporting hundreds of creatives, professionals, start-ups, and Founders in articulating and realizing their goals, she has set her sights on disrupting the personal-development landscape. Her newest venture, Sphere, is a first-to-market technology enhancing the experience of personal coaching. Because, for Devon, growth is the only goal.
