CANTOO’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY – BECAUSE GREAT COMMERCIALS REALLY TURN US ON

Posted 29th Nov, 2012

I received an invitation AND ticket to the 10th CanToo Screening Fundraiser.

ACE’S AFTER SCHOOL SPECIAL [EVENT] AT THE YELLOWHEAD BREWERY

Posted 18th Oct, 2012

To the left was a hallway to beer tasting. To the right, a door exuding laughter and free full glasses of beer. Clearly, the Student After Hours event was to the right. I followed the laughter and found myself welcomed by handcuffs and a ticket for beer. That, dear advertising professionals and fanatics, is a great beginning for any mingling event.

ACE TO THE RESCUE!

Posted 09th Oct, 2012

Summer is officially over! I declare this every year after the Autumn Equinox regardless of the weather. I also try to wear open toe shoes as long as possible. This year poses no problems! I love autumn in Edmonton. What I also love about autumn is getting back to business, or rather, connecting and networking with colleagues.
