Lunch ‘N’ Learn

Lunch ‘n Learn: Focus on YOU – 8 Areas of Your Personality and How to Weave Them into Your Brand.

Date: Thursday, February 9, 2023
Time: 12:00 PM – 2:00PM
Location: Ottawa Marriott Hotel – 100 Kent Street, Ottawa, ON, K1P 5R7

Details: Registration is now open for PCMA Canada East Chapter’s Lunch ‘n’ Learn event at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel, during the annual Ottawa Meet Week. This is the place to be for all industry professionals across the region!

The event has been created with two segments: an hour of networking at the beginning followed by an hour of education. If you are attending the MPI session in the morning, there will be a “Middle Mingle” for you to participate in while you wait for our session to start between 11:00am – 12:00pm.

A buffet will open thirty minutes before the keynote, so come hungry!

We are all made from literally thousands of characteristics! From our personality traits, to our strengths and passions, to our values and beliefs. Deciding what to share through our brands can be a tricky and complicated business! Join Leanne Calderwood as she helps bring order to the chaos and gives you the tools you need to hone in on what you should share through your brand.

This 60-minute workshop training will help attendees: 

  • Explore the 8 areas of our personality from which we can pull our brand traits.
  • Uncover the stories from our personal and professional lives that will invite others into community with us, amping up our “know, like and trust” factor.
  • Discover your undeniable Unique Value Proposition and how this can set you apart from all the other brands.
