Jesse Norsworthy

Vancouver, Canada

Sustainability Manager and 
Event Producer

Details of experience:

Jesse's experience with event management and encouraging sustainability has been a growing process throughout the passed 10 years.


His wife and him started Girl On Wax Entertainment and wanted to focus on female DJ’s, musicians and performers to even the playing field and create equality in the work place.

This field of work is dominated by males and they are changing that.

 

Their company is now one of the leading events company in Vancouver. GirlOnWax has 15 female DJ's and many musicians and performers apart of the team. They are spreading across Canada and have done events internationally.


GirlOnWax Entertainment is also a paperless company with a very low consumption load. They do this by using their home as their office and have limited their vehicles to one work vehicle to do over 350 events a year.


GirlOnWax Events also supports local charities including The Union Gospel Mission, Vancouver Canucks Autism Network The Decoda Literacy Foundation, several animal charities and organizations.


In 2015 they were first runner up for best wedding entertainment company in B.C.


What inspires Jesse is solving problems and producing events and projects, as well as inspiring others around me to make there own sustainable choices. 

He has expanded his knowledge into energy management systems and he is working with corporate businesses in technology and agriculter to be sustainable in everyday business practice, as well as thinking of new innovative ways to lower there consumption, while saving money for the business.

Jesse is currently working on a few of his own projects in Solar and Agriculture.
