It's been a productive couple of weeks for a few of The Well's event and communications talents - capping of very different events in Toronto and Halifax.
Last night, The Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market delivered the first 'The Table' event to a sold out crowd. Working with The Well's Tracy Ashley and Laura Oakley to orchestrate and deliver this experience, ‘The Table’ is an intimate, cultural sharing experience through food and stories.
In what hopes to become a series, attendees of this first event were treated to a wonderful, traditional Latin American meal and stories prepared by local Chef Luis Cavel. Mr. Clavel was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in El Salvador and Guatemala before moving to Nova Scotia in his teens.
From the intimate setting of the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market to the world stage, Jill MacCannell has just wrapped up working with the Invictus Games as the media relations lead for Prince Harry's visit to Toronto on May 2nd. From site preparation and technical requirements to planning and pitching all communications and media - all eyes were on Jill when they weren't on Prince Harry.
As a part of the visit, Jill also managed all of the communications for the live sledge event with Prince Harry, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mayor John Tory, the Canadian Sledge Hockey Team and hosts Cabbie Richards (TSN) and Melissa Grelo (CTV's The Social).
A bright kick-off to what is shaping up for a busy event season for 2016.
