Our goal is to bring together a community of decision-makers who believe it’s time to re-think how employers, employees and customers engage with one another and to provide an important voice in the movement toward creating a truly social workplace.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 30, 2011
Canadian Management Centre; which has been assisting leading Canadian organizations in developing their managers and leaders since 1963, has partnered with Impact People Practices, an HR consulting firm dedicated to fostering leadership and employee engagement, today announced that they will be the presenting sponsor for Impact99, the first Canadian social and HR conference of its kind.
The conference, which will be held in two cities, Squamish, B.C. and Toronto, this fall, will gather influential human capital leaders to connect, engage and together, reinvent the workplace. Participants will share their collective knowledge, be exposed to the latest social tools, techniques and platforms, and connect with and learn from some of Canada’s leading social media and social HR experts.
Impact99 takes place October 6 at Quest University in Squamish, BC, and again on November 7 at Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto. It brings together leaders from Canada’s top companies, including Starbucks, Whistler Blackcomb, Scotia Capital, Beeddie School of Business, Sauder School of Business and more.

“Impact99 is different from other conferences in that it is part summit, part think-tank and part boot-camp,” said Christine McLeod, CHRP and director of Impact People Practices. “It is designed to provide HR and C-suite leaders with a rare opportunity to collaborate around new ideas, tools and strategies that can reshape their company’s culture and workplace. Our goal is to bring together a community of decision-makers who believe it’s time to re-think how employers, employees and customers engage with one another and to provide an important voice in the movement toward creating a truly social workplace.”
“Canadian Management Centre prides itself in being a progressive organization that is on the constant lookout for other organizations that also believe that talent management and professional development are catalysts for success; Impact99 along with the thought leaders they attract fits that bill perfectly,” said Andre Proulx, Vice President Marketing for Canadian Management Centre. “We’re very excited to be the presenting sponsor and can’t wait to see the innovative thinking at work.”
