CanSPEP Member For: 11 years
2016/2017 Goals: As the President of CanSPEP I am thrilled to bring my 15 years of experience as an entrepreneur to this amazing association. I have been a CanSPEP member for over 10 years and believe in the powerful support this association gives to the members. I am looking forward to working with the super line up of Vice Presidents as we continue to build and strengthen our association. As entrepreneurs, we all know to survive in the industry as a business owner you have to grow with the industry, embrace new technology and incorporate new ideas and approaches. I am looking forward to growing our membership, building stronger collaborative relationships with our industry partners and increasing the ways we communicate with our membership.
Why are you an Event Entrepreneur: I came from the not for profit world as a Policy Analyst/Director and it was time for a change. An opportunity presented itself to work with a colleague to develop and deliver a couple of her national conferences. I have never looked back – only forward. I knew event management but not the science of meetings or the business world. It is very different from the not for profit world. CanSPEP has been a hub for me. I love what I do. I love the growth, I love the creativity, I love the industry, and I love the freedom of entrepreneurship.
