Exclusive Event for Young Professionals: “Project Phoenix”

IABC Ottawa is excited to present a new exclusive event for young professionals: a dinner conversation with Shannon O’Brien, Internal Communications Strategist, Shopify (former Leader of Enterprise Communications at MD Financial Management). Shannon will share a fascinating case study of “Project Phoenix”.

On January 3, 2013, the head office of MD Financial Management suffered a fire. MD could have followed a simple path: repair the building and get back to business as usual. Instead, they seized the opportunity.

Not only did a new, modern office emerge from the ashes, but also a new culture of collaboration, innovative thinking, flexibility, and improved work life.

Attendees will learn about change management, internal communication, and crisis communication strategies and tactics that were used during the transition from old to new. Shannon’s presentation will be followed by a discussion and a Q&A period.

If you are a young professional looking to transition to a managerial role or are a recently appointed manager, this event is for you!

Your ticket includes a 3-course meal.

Please note that this event is limited to 14 people so please get your ticket early!

Early bird ticket sales end on February 10.

When: Tuesday, February 23, 5:00-8:00 pm. Cocktails/networking at 5:00 p.m; dinner at 5:45 p.m. Please arrive on time.

Location: Steak & Sushi, 87 Clarence St, Ottawa, Ontario
