CONFERENCE RECAP

Some Highlights of the 2019 Catch The Energy Conference!

It was very easy to Catch the Energy at this year’s Conference on October 19th with the fabulous venue at Mount Royal University, sold out crowds (we had to open new rooms to accommodate attendees) and the unique CEO hosted Luncheon format! One attendee from Toronto, said “ Last year was perfect, and this year was even better!” Thank you, Ed!

“Meeting management face to face gives you a much better understanding of the company than just reading reports and listening to conference calls.”
