Loyalist PR takes on Toronto!

Phew, what a day we had last Thursday on our annual trip to Toronto. The day began super early (yawn!), and didn't stop all day long.
Our first stop was to Edelman Toronto, one of the world's leading independent PR firms. We were hosted by Shannon, Jeff and Rosie, who made us feel right at home (thanks, guys!).
After a presentation featuring various case studies and an overview of the firm, the trio whisked us off for a tour of the firm (very impressive - we want our own terrace with wifi too!).

Next, it was off to visit Loyalist PR graduate Shonna Spicer, now with the Jays Care Foundation at the Rogers Centre. [On our way past the new Ripley's Aquarium, we waved to Loyalist PR grad Maggie Doucette, the aquarium's Media Relations Coordinator, who was conducting a media interview there -- Loyalist PR grads are EVERYWHERE!]
Shonna and her boss, Rob Drynan were on hand to show us around and made a great presentation about the fundraising arm of the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team. Great presentation, guys!
We even got to visit the clubhouse - very cozy!
Finally, we made our way to CBC Studios for our annual pilgrimage to see the George Strombo show.
                           
Good times were had by all!
                           
Thanks for a great day, everyone!
