Last year was my first time attending TEC as a delegate as well as TEC committee member.
I had a fantastic experience!
Just to list a few of the pluses;
I had the opportunity to visit a great new location and venue that I’ve never been to (Blue Mountain).
I integrated ideas learned at TEC into events I was planning. In fact, I took so many notes that I was asked to share them with others post conference.
I met new people that reached beyond the Toronto MPI chapter. That meant, according to Thom Singer (the keynote speaker), that they were viable LinkedIn request candidates, allowing me to expand my network and build relationships.
In addition to the above, I earned CEU’s credits needed to renew my CMP.
So when it came time to choose which committee to join for 2014 the decision was obvious. I would join TEC once again and focus my attention towards helping to create another successful event.
Our committee has been and is dedicated to making this year’s conference another roaring success and promises to deliver another list of ‘pluses’. The theme is slated to include ideas on Creativity, Leadership and Business Skills. All of which are skills to add to my portfolio.
This year the conference is happening on June 15-17, 2014 and the location will be announced soon!
