SHIFT’s 3rd Lunch & Learn Event was a great success!
Over 30 SHIFTers joined us at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery on Tuesday March 20th for our third edition of our first Mentorship Speaker Series. This lunch and learn event presented by Dominion Lending Centres Lakehead Financial (Nathan Lawrence, Mortgage Agent & Lease Professional) featured Tracy Buckler, the President & CEO of St. Joseph’s Care Group. Tracy shared her perspective on leadership and mentorship while SHIFTers enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by ‘A Fine Fit Catering’.
SHIFT is extremely pleased with their first Mentorship Speaker Series and is delighted to have had Tracy Buckler as one of the great mentors featured in this series. All proceeds from these three lunch and learn events will be going to the Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Thunder Bay organization. Thank you to all who came out to hear from Jim Madder, Silvio Di Gregorio and Tracy Buckler while supporting a great cause!
Presented by Sun Life Financial, the February 21st, 2012 edition which featured Silvio Di Gregorio (Bruno’s Contracting, Whitewater Golf Club) at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery was another sold out SHIFT event!
