Meeting MPI Toronto - January/February 2015 - (Page 26)

continued from page 12 continued from page 12 chance to utilize what we learned in the classroom in the real world. That's where our skills will truly develop and improve. However, we can never stop being students. We must always continue learning to remain innovative in our field. WITH THE EMERGENCE OF TECHNOLOGY AND A TURN TOWARDS GOING DIGITAL, DO YOU FIND IT IS STILL IMPORTANT TO CONTINUE USING PRINTED MATERIALS/SIGNAGE? WHY SHOULD PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION TO UP-AND-COMING PROFESSIONALS?  We are the face of the future in the meeting and events industry. We have so much to learn from those who are more experienced than us, but we can also offer fresh ideas and different perspectives. WHAT HAVE YOU FOUND TO BE THE MOST VALUABLE LESSON LEARNED FROM SCHOOL? The most valuable lesson I learned from Humber is professionalism. Humber has given me the tools I need to succeed in the workplace. From résumé-building, to interview preparation and networking strategies, I feel confident stepping into the industry as a young professional. Jessica Silipo is a Student at Humber College and can be reached at jessica.silipo@hotmail.com Our clients are not using printed material like brochures, programs or even business cards. This kind of information can be found online or through smartphone apps. Instead our clients need printed materials such as big banners and directional signs in and outside the venue, especially to show sponsors' logos and their support in the events. Audiovisual solutions are good, but sometimes they do not have as great an impact. WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE MEETINGS AND EVENTS INDUSTRY? It requires creativity to stay relevant in the meetings and events industry, and I love it. I love that fact that I'm always coming up with new ideas for new projects. It is the artist in me, what can I say! Ayfer Samancioglu is the Creative Director at Saman Design Inc. and can be reached at ayfer@samandesign.com.
