The event Donate & Learn was held at the Ted Rogers School of Management – Ryerson University this past Dec. 4th. A great spot for a seminar – this was a free event with a min. $20 donation (tax-deductible) to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto

Before the seminars began in the conference room, it was possible to donate money to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Toronto by buying food and drinks or tickets for amazing prizes. Also at this time every company supporting the event had a booth where attendees could ask direct questions and learn a little bit more about the companies and their services. Perfect for networking and meeting other people interested in this passionate world of online marketing.

The event was definitely a success with over 450 attendees and more than $9,000 raised for Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Toronto.

All presentations were well created and very easy to follow. Some presentations where more interactive than others, but all of them where very inspirational. It was great to hear what companies like Bing, Go Daddy, Big3 and Green Lotto have to say about online marketing and it was exciting when they shared with the audience some great ideas to implement as an online business owner.

Definitely a great experience for a great cause.

The Beverley Hotel

The creative spirit of the original Queen West is what inspired the new boutique BeverleyHotel. The BeverlyHotel has been influenced by art, creativity and music.  The lounge or rooftop patio at the hotel is a great place to chat over drinks.

The BeverleyHotel has a lofty goal: “We hope to reconnect that part of Queen Street that’s been lost in recent years, with a gathering place that provokes conversation, welcomes strangers and makes room for conflicting ideals.”

The finer things in life collide with the spirit of Queen West.  Community sourced ingredients give a local flavour to a diverse menu by chef Eric Wood. Time spent handcrafting cocktails can be tasted in every sip.

It all adds up to a vibe that invites you to eat, drink and be merry, so
