Planned by the CityEvents team and Event Marketing Specialist Jason Schmidt and hosted by Hogg, Shain & Scheck and the Ted Rogers School of Management Alumni, the event was a great success. All guests left with a take-out container filled with candy and a smile on their face after having indulged in delicious food and being provided the opportunity to skate on the refurbished ice formerly known as the world-renowned Maple Leaf Gardens.

The evening started off with an opportunity for mingling with other guests and Allan Small. There were passed hors d’oeuvres, cheese plates, and a glass of welcome prosecco for everyone to enjoy. Once everyone was seated Allan started his very informative talk about the 5 things that could derail the 2015 markets and how to navigate around these risks.

Proceeding the talk Rosa Forgione was introduced and she led casual wine tasting. She sampled three different wines; 2 reds, and a white wine. She was very personable and went around to every table talking about the wines and asking people how they enjoyed them. The evening was concluded by a final round of hors d’oeuvres and a chance for people to ask Allan some questions and to mingle with the other attendees.Screen Shot 2015-02-11 at 1.06.30 PM
