Speed Networking and Education Session: INSPIRE! It’s Your Choice

September 18 @ 10:30 am2:30 pm EDT

PCMA Canada East Chapter is hosting a special Networking and Education event in downtown Montreal at Montréal Marriott Château Champlain .

The event has been created with three different segments: an hour of networking at the beginning followed by an hour of education and finishing the day with another hour of networking. This will not be your typical networking event! The allotted networking time is for planners and suppliers to meet in a speed networking environment.

Each Supplier registered will need to purchase a table to find new opportunities. We invite planners to join this special event on a complimentary basis, making new connections, and expanding their network by interacting with one another in a more intimate setting.

By letting yourself be INSPIRED, you become INSPIRING!!

It’s easy to forget these things when we’re busy, stressed-out, in a changing world, or self-absorbed, but they make all the difference in the culture we create for ourselves and our organization.

“It’s the sum of all our choices (even the small ones) that will define who we’ll become and the impact we’ll have on others.”

INSPIRE is based on 4 interconnected principles that give us a new language to talk about how we want to treat each other, how we want to impact others and how to keep these ways of being in the front or our minds each day.

Le chapitre de l’est du Canada de PCMA est fier d’organiser un événement spécial de réseautage et d’éducation à Montréal, soit au Montréal Marriott Château Champlain.

L’événement se déroulera en trois segments différents : une heure de réseautage, suivi d’une séance éducative d’une heure  suivi plus de réseautage en fin de journée. Ce ne sera pas votre événement d’affaires typique ! Le temps de réseautage alloué permettra aux planificateurs et aux fournisseurs de se rencontrer dans un contexte de « speed-dating » événementiel.

Chaque fournisseur inscrit devra acheter une table cocktail pour trouver de nouvelles occasions d’affaires. Nous invitons les planificateurs à se joindre gratuitement à cet événement unique pour créer d’excellentes relations, élargir leur réseau professionnel, tout en échangeant, les uns avec les autres, dans un cadre plus intime.

En vous laissant INSPIRER, vous devenez INSPIRANT!

Il est facile d’oublier ces choses lorsque nous sommes occupés, stressés, dans un monde en mutation ou égocentriques, mais elles font toute la différence dans la culture que nous créons pour nous-mêmes et pour notre organisation.

“C’est la somme de tous nos choix (même les plus petits) qui définira ce que nous deviendrons et l’impact que nous aurons sur les autres.”

INSPIRE repose sur 4 principes interconnectés qui nous offrent un nouveau langage pour parler de la manière dont nous voulons nous traiter mutuellement, de l’impact que nous voulons avoir sur les autres et de la manière de garder ces façons d’être à l’avant-plan de nos pensées chaque jour.
