On September 24, IABC Ottawa hosted our fall season opening social with our partner Shopify. In addition to kicking off our new season, the evening allowed for reconnecting with colleagues and introducing new members to Ottawa’s growing communications community. We had the opportunity to hear from two guest speakers from Shopify’s Jamie Oliver (recruiter) and Courtney Symons (partner marketing manager) about what they look for when hiring communications experts. Those who attended our season opener also had the opportunity to enter a draw for the chance to win passes to one of two upcoming IABC partnered conferences; Conference Board of Canada Public Sector Social Media, and the Canadian Public Sector Transformation 2015.
Congratulations to raffle winners Andrew Oosterman and Sarah Zaman!
A special thank you is given to the IABC board members and volunteers who helped us in setting up and organizing the evening, our partners at Shopify, and all of those who attended. We look forward to seeing all attendees and members at the fantastic IABC conferences and events planned for the upcoming 2015-2016 season.
