What do you look forward to achieving in your portfolio this year?

I am looking forward to continuing the great work of the marketing team. My goal, through the marketing portfolio, is to increase membership and raise awareness of all that CanSPEP brings to the event management industry in Canada by showcasing the best CanSPEP has to offer.

Why did you get into the event management entrepreneurial space?¬† When it was time to make a change in my life I knew it was a career change I needed. Always having been the entrepreneurial type I knew I had to look at doing something for myself. Rumour has it that the right career choice for a person is doing the one thing that you would do for free. It didn’t take me long to have the light bulb go off, event management! Event management is something I have always done naturally and really well and it was always something I did just because I was good at it. It became my new career choice and I am so grateful it was because there is always so much to learn and try that it keeps me inspired and motivated.
