How many years have you been a CanSPEP Member?
What do you look forward to achieving in your portfolio this year?
This year, I look forward to helping our new board members be as productive as possible and to continue to raise the profile of CanSPEP and our members through participation at Meetings Mean Business Canada and Global Meetings Industry Day.
Why did you get into the event management entrepreneurial space?
I have always done events – being in the hotel industry primarily – but finally decided to be an entrepreneur when my mom passed away when my son was about 2 ½ years old. I wanted to have more time with my family and more control over my time in general and how I spent it. I also wanted to be able to affect things that are important to me, like social justice issues, I wanted to, as Steve Jobs would say, put my dent in the universe.
