The CanSPEP GTA Community gathered on May 30th for a fantastic networking event hosted by our friends at the Old Mill. While enjoying a delicious lunch, members and suppliers got to spend time together catching up and enjoying a really lovely space within the historic property. It was wonderful to see some of our new CanSPEP members attend.
The highlight of the event was an intimate presentation; ‘Life is a Special Event’ from Carol Moxam, a 25+ year veteran of the events industry. Carol shared her journey and personal story of her career and life choices that lead to a major health crises and what she learned from that experience. The conversations that resulted were poignant and revealing for many of the audience members. We were reminded that although we have very stressful careers, we can and should apply the same approach to designing our personal lives as we do our client’s events. As a participant, I left feeling grateful for the caring people in my CanSPEP Community and inspired to pay forward the message of self-care.
Thanks to Miranda Salvatore and Heidi Wilker for organizing a great event, AV-Canada for supporting the production needs, and to the Old Mill for their generous hospitality.
