TLC Ted Talks: Industry Leader Edition

September is in full-swing with gorgeous weather here in Toronto. Clear blue skies and 29 degree days makes it feel more like late June rather than fall.

As September usually does, there are a whole slew of events popping up, and I am happy to announce that I have been invited speak at the upcoming TLC “Ted Talks” – Industry Leaders & Mixer, organized by The Ladies Community, and held at the Thompson Hotel in Toronto. This event will feature industry leading women from fields as diverse as the arts, technology, business, and medicine. I am flattered to be included on the programme with such successful women as an industry leader for my work in opera.

The event is open to the public, sorry gents, but this talk is for ladies only.

You can find out more information and purchase tickets at this link.
