Award-winning Loyalist PR grad stops by

Our thanks to Loyalist PR grad Amanda Attard, Event Coordinator at e=mc2 events (Toronto) who stopped by our Event Management class via Skype today.

Amanda provided a great overview of the life of an event planner, including the highs and lows of the job. 

Working with e=mc2 events, Amanda helps organize more than 100 events across North America, including such major occasions as Love Her (see photo below), the Children's Aid Teddy Bear Affair (the longest-running fundraising gala in Toronto), the annual "Limitless" fundraiser for Special Olympics, and the annual Toronto International Film Festival fundraising gala.
"In event management, you're always looking to create memorable, on-site moments and experiences," explains Amanda. "It's all about being creative and paying attention to the details."
Thanks for stopping by, Amanda - you're a real inspiration and we're proud of all that you've accomplished!
