COMMERCE. COMMUNITY. CULTURE. CREATION.
Bizzybody Enterprises is invested in strengthening economic development through the creation of healthy economic ecosystems involving every tier—individuals, organizations, and communities.
As a northern, Indigenous economic development firm, Bizzybody understands the need for customized culturally-based community solutions, because...
Every learner, organization, and community brings unique challenges and strengths which require unique solutions
Culturally-based, long-term relationship building, with accountability is not an aspiration, it is a bottom line
ROI is significantly improved through the application of detailed strategy and design at every level
Success doesn’t happen in silos; it is germinated and nurtured through collaboration and co-creation
Diversity is the catalyst of innovation
Conventional wisdoms of pedagogy and business are valuable, however, individuals, organizations, and communities are best served with customized solutions that address the unique factors influencing them, to include culture, geography, and worldview
Indigenous ways of knowing and being are rooted in collaborative, strengths-based approaches, that embody resilience and creative adaptability. These are principles that can improve any community, organization, or leadership practice.
& Services Available:
Strengthening economic development through connecting commerce, community, and culture for creation.
Bizzybody Training Centre. We leverage career competencies and essential skills to help our clients celebrate culture, build strong communities, and make money on their own terms.
Business creation, upscaling, training and development, consulting, and project and event management, specializing in those traditionally left out of modern models of education and business/career development.
Bizzybody provides training through and with recognized knowledge keepers, because business and career success happen in conjunction with, and not separate from community and cultural foundations.

Jocelyn Eisert is the CEO and founder of Bizzybody Enterprises. She has devoted her work (and life) to helping groups bring events to life and is continually inspired by the transformation and life changes the participants experience. The youngest of 17 siblings, she credits her upbringing and Métis heritage with instilling strong family values, her passion for community and a strong desire to help others grow and improve.
A road trip to British Columbia in 2004 saw her make the spontaneous decision to move to Fort St. John, the city she now calls home with her husband Dwayne and daughter Jaylee.
Jocelyn has an extensive background in event management, facilitation and training and has worked with non-profit societies, corporations and First Nations.
