On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, the Women in Management Network (WMN), part of University of Ottawa’s Telfer School of Management, hosted a #RealTalks Marketing Panel and Discussion networking event for their members at the Impact Hub in the heart of downtown Ottawa. Close to 100 people were in attendance.
Panelists included Dipalli Bhatt from Enghouse, Diana Kolesarova from Fullscript, Aida Alves from the Royal Canadian Mint, Sabrina Nash from the Royal Canadian Navy, and our very own Luiza Sadowski, Chief Communications Officer for CIMMO.
Some of the questions covered by the panelists included day-to-day responsibilities, educational and professional background, career journey—the best advice they could give to someone interested in pursuing a career in marketing, and some of the biggest shifting trends they’ve seen in the industry over the years. A Q&A and networking, complete with refreshments, followed.
All panelists brought their diverse marketing backgrounds and shared valuable insights and experiences that inspired everyone in the room! Many of the attendees, members and alumni of WMN and the Telfer School of Management, had captivating follow-up questions. They were so moved by the discussions, they all exchanged contact info following the panel. What’s more, the WMN received amazing feedback from everyone following the event, and left learning something new.
“This event was truly amazing! I left the venue feeling empowered, committed and inspired to keep chasing my dreams. Thank you to all the panelists for sharing their passion and encouraging us to pursue ours.” – Stella Rivas, Career Director, WMN
