New Year to Kick Off with a Bang

Happy New Year to all! AceTech Ontario has a number of programming events on the docket in 2016's first quarter.


We're excited to announce that former Kobo CEO Mike Serbinis will guest speak for AceTech Ontario members later this month. Beyond that, we are set to launch a brand-new programming event (Interactive Peer Group Session) in mid-February.

As we flip to a new year, the AceTech Ontario community climbs yet another step in performance. 2016 will feature more programming than ever before, all mapped around 'the 360 Business' - this year's feature theme (look for our theme logos). 

For these details and more, see below!

'Building a Culture of Winning' With Mike Serbinis - January 27th Power Session
We are very excited to kick off 2016 with a bang by inviting former Kobo CEO Mike Serbinis to host our first power session of the new year.

Mike will talk about 'Health First', both for employers and employees. He will also be offering a day of free health services for each company.

Today Mike is the Founder and CEO of LEAGUE Inc. The new personal health platform is designed to help people live healthier, happier lives - every day. With mobile iOS, Android and web apps, LEAGUE connects people with the best preventative health professionals. From easily booking and paying for services, tracking and sharing personal health information and connecting with a vibrant health provider community LEAGUE offers people a trusted destination to manage their health.

We will be hosting our first ever Interactive Peer Group Session on Friday, February 19th at E11even Restaurant. The event will run from noon to 2 pm.

These will be essentially the same as our roundtables except they will be open to all our CEO members and they will be on a specific topic - our launch topic is 'What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as a leader?' 

Anyone can sign up, but attendance will be limited to 20 participants to enable great conversations. Stay tuned for an invite in early January!
