Upcoming Panel Discussion at First Annual Pride in Business Trade Show

Jun 13, 2018

I’m thrilled to announce that I’m speaking on a panel about Promotion through Digital and Traditional Media. The panel is at the first annual “Pride in Business” Business Forum and Trade Show on June 21st.

I’ll be joined by Patrick McCauly of Point Man News Creation, Janine Harris of Keyring Media, and Dan Snow of Snow Social.

If you’re in the downtown Toronto area on June 21st, I’d be honoured if you’d join me for the discussion at the Berkeley Bicycle Club. You can get free tickets for the panel on Eventbrite.
