MRIA EMERGING LEADERS TASK FORCE & TORONTO CHAPTER EVENT
 

For the first time, the MRIA’s Emerging Leaders Task Force (ELTF), in collaboration with the Toronto Chapter, is launching a storyteller series like no other. In.sight - Inspiring through Storytelling is a speaker series that will take place for the first time on July 20th at Paupers Pub in downtown Toronto.

Come out for some good company, networking, drinks, and listen to your colleagues tell their best stories; stories about overcoming adversity, about a lifetime of adventure in market research, about challenging yourself and innovating to succeed. 

THERE TO TELL YOU THEIR STORIES WILL BE...
