Over the past two months I have had the pleasure of meeting with some of our new members over coffee. (If you are available on November 8th, email me to confirm and join us at Balzac’s at the Toronto Reference Library). While all were at varying stages in their careers, everyone I met mentioned it was the opportunity to network with other public relations practitioners – to share ideas and get advice – as the reason they choose to join CPRS Toronto.
In light of this, we are committed to hosting more networking events this year and we are expanding our mentorship program. Starting November 13, we will be initiating peer mentoring. Elizabeth Verwey, author of the book The Mentors Circle will help us get our program off the ground. This is a “members only” event. Thanks to NewsCanada for sponsoring this session.
If Boomers are from Venus, where are Millennials from? Meet us at MaRS on November 20 and hear insights from market researcher Tanya Pyshnov on two important demographic groups we should know more about. Thanks to CNW for sponsoring this event and all our professional development events.
I hope you will take advantage of the networking and professional development events we have planned and let me or any of the board members know if you have ideas for future events.
