This past Monday our CEO, Robert Cairns attended the Toronto Small Business Week Kickoff Event presented by the BDC and Paypal. This was one of the best-organized events we have attended in a long time.

The event was held on the 17 floor of the Globe and Mail Building in Toronto. First off what a view of the city.

The event was well run. They had a free networking lunch before the speakers and an hour of networking after the speakers. It was a great way to hear some talks, catch up with people and meet some new connections. This was well done and more event organizers should structure their events like this one.

The speakers at the event were:

  1. Amber Mac – Tech expert and author.
  2. Jen Lee Kos – Co-Founder, Brika.
  3. Allen Lau, CEO and Co-Founder Wattpad.

The Panel was moderated by Paul Parisi, President of PayPal Canada.

The discussion was amazing talking about entrepreneurs and small business concerns.

For interest sake, the picture at the top of the post is our CEO Rob Cairns with Amber Mac.
