Thank you again for covering the event, Sandi, and hats off to Edelman Canada for being our venue hosts! And special thanks as well to our incredible speakers Asif Khan of The LBMA and Diana Lucaci and Katerina Juskey of True Impact Marketing. We’ll be posting photos from the event soon on our website!
