Work at Play

As adults, acknowledging the role of play is often lost if not completely forgotten. Maybe it’s because it feels too childish, or silly.

Event Review: The Art of Reinvention with the PWN

This was the first PWN (Professional Women’s Network) event I had attended so I had no idea what to expect as I walked through the doors of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP. So I was pleasantly surprised when I was welcomed with an array of delicious food platters (Vietnamese rolls, charcuterie meats, cheeses and dips) and […]

Presentation Pointers

Being that I make a living at making things look appealing (at least what I think looks good anyways!) I thought I might be able to shed some light on how to avoid a few of the presentation blunders. Some seem rather simple, but the moment someone has “creative” license to do as they please, […]

Planning Staff Events Part 3: Food and Beverage

At the last corporate event I planned, there was only one complaint. Not enough food. But how could that be possible? I thought. I had ordered more than enough with a fantastic and reputable caterer. How could there have not been enough for everyone? What I hadn’t accounted for was that when you are serving […]

Let’s Hear It For The Moms!

Where to start … My day began by leaping out of bed in a hurried craze to feed my kids, get them dressed and ready for school, and out the door in time for me to make it downtown from the burbs. As prepared as I thought I was, yes, I was late. For someone […]

Earlier this week I attended the Big Sister’s Gala. This event took place at the Fairmont Waterfront on a cool and wet night.
