Next Mentor Monday on June 6


Mark your calendars! The next Mentor Monday will be held June 6 from 3 to 6 p.m. at Bennett Jones, 3400 One First Canadian Place, Toronto. Please register at Eventbrite here for the event. RSVP is required.

When Mentor Monday began in early 2010 we intended to create a unique forum to connect CEOs to mentors, providing a candid, effective networking opportunity for all.

CEOs who presented at our last meeting included Krista Zyp from gShiftlabs, Alain Paquin from Whatsnexx and Steve Hulford from Filemobile. I am enthused by the number of young entrepreneurs who come to listen and learn from some very experienced industry veterans.

Stay tuned for more information on our next meeting!

Another Great Mentor Monday…Thanks Everyone!

I wanted to take the time today to thank everyone who participated in Mentor Monday this week.
First and foremost, our deep gratitude goes out to Barry Reiter and Gary Solway from Bennett Jones for hosting again at their fantastic facility. Bennett has been a great partner to Digital Puck.  Second, a big thank you to the CEOs who presented at this session:  Chango CEO Chris Sukornyk, Bering Media CEO Michael Ho and Kneebone CEO Wendy Robertson.
All three laid the ground for some great discussion.
Mentor Monday will return in 2011 and we hope to see you then.  Thank you all for the support!

Mentor Monday to continue in September 2010

Mentor Monday has been a great success for all and we intend to continue with the model.  Given the summer holiday season is upon us soon, limiting full participation, we are going to restart Mentor Monday in early September.  I have several companies in the queue to present (please send Howard Gwin a note if you would like to present your company) and we will be back in full gear in early August setting up the event.
