This past week IABC hosted ”Networking 9” groups with IABC members across the GTA. These are smaller networking groups hosted by special guest speakers.
In Markham, Marichka Melnyk, a reporter and producer for CBC radio for more than 20 years shared her perspectives on how journalists do their jobs in the age of fake news, clickbait and troll armies.
In Whitby, Allan Williams, having run municipal, provincial and federal election campaigns, provided an inside look at the war rooms of successful (an unsuccessful) political campaigns and what we can learn from them in our current political climate.
In Mississauga, Larissa Primeau, CEO of Framework Creative Content, former radio host, current writer, producer, director and filmmaker provided some innovative and creative examples of how to engage and measure successful video campaigns.
In addition to the creatively shared around the table with the Networking 9 in the west, three of our attendees joined in the fun of karaoke night at the location. They showed off their creative singing communication talents and ended a very successful and fun night on a great note!
