January 28th - CIPBA Kathleen Wynne Dinner
I had the great opportunity to attend a dinner welcoming The Honourable Kathleen Wynne. What a great time sitting with the team from Scotia Bank...who would have thought bankers could be so much fun! The event, which was held downtown at the Liberty Grand, was hosted by the Canadian Italian Business and Professional Association.
January 24th – Inspire
I really didn't mind getting lost at York U campus in minus forty degree weather (that includes wind chill factor, my friends!). Not at all considering I was there to INSPIRE 2014's latest line-up of incredible speakers. Geared mainly to university students the purpose of INSPIRE is to motivate, engage and inspire Canadian youth as well as provide graduate/undergraduate bursaries. I was captivated by all the speakers and had, as Oprah would say, many "aha" moments. Speakers: Allan Cosman VP Ferrero International, Shelley Martin President/CEO Nestle Canada and Alex Rechichi founder Extreme Pita/Mucho Burrito.
