Meeting MPI Toronto - March/April 2016 - (Page 4)

president's message The Best That You Can Be Meeting Professionals GEOFF MAK, CEM, CMP International Toronto Chapter Senior Account Executive Allstream Centre and Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place gmak@allstreamcentre.com 6700 Century Ave., Suite 100 Mississauga, ON L5N 6A4 Tel: 905-567-9591 Fax: 866-768-8168 Our society typically has a break for students in the middle of March - a time to relax, recuperate and reflect on our lives, and a time to evaluate and envision on how we can be the best that we can be. We know we can't be the best at everything and that there will always be someone better at a particular skill either in the present or in the future, so we strive to improve ourselves every day, knowing that failure is just as important in order for us to grow and discover where we will find the most success. For truly, there are no regrets in the choices we make, but only possible lessons to help us succeed in the future. Now, we all excel in different ways with different talents, which is why, when we come together as a chapter and as an industry, we are able to leverage the myriad of talents available to create amazing experiences for our guests. It's with that thought in mind, that I invite you (if you are not already doing so) to volunteer with our chapter, in whatever capacity, so we can continue to create and build the future of our industry together. Our chapter certainly strives to be the best in everything that we do. However, as some members have been informing us, being the best only makes sense when we understand who we are and what we represent. As our industry continues to change, so do we, and we will continue to need your feedback and support as we grow. We welcome your input at any time as we plan for the continued success of the Toronto Chapter. P.S. In the months of March and April, come celebrate with us as we honour the best volunteers over the past year at our Awards Gala on March 10; or join us at Global Meetings Industry Day on April 14, where we gather as an industry and tell the rest of the world why we are so successful. ● office@mpitoronto.org www.mpitoronto.org Published by: 1630 Ness Ave., Suite 300 Winnipeg, MB R3J 3X1 Tel: 800-665-2456 Fax: 204-947-2047 www.naylor.com Group Publisher: Angela Caroyannis Project Manager: Kim Davies Editor: Sarah Sain Marketing: Karim Hussain Book Leader: Norma Walchuk Sales Representatives: Heidi Burgess, Tracy Goltsman, Rick McPhee, Maya Wisher Design & Layout: Dan Proudley ©2016 Naylor (Canada) Inc.
