October Chapter Meeting Recap
Charmaine Hammond – The Untapped Revenue Source for Speakers
Our October 21st event was a big hit with standing room only to hear Charmaine Hammond speak about sponsorship and to explain how easy it is.
Nathalie Plamondon-Thomas (L), pictured with Charmaine was in the hot seat and within 3 minutes received numerous ideas on where to find sponsors. Nathalie said the experience was a perfect example of the CAPS Advantage – Learn. Share. Grow. Belong.
We had several guests express how much they enjoyed the meeting and the value in the presentation – and they will return! Thanks to our virtual audience, participating via Zoom.
Our rising star, Kindi Gill, presented her outstanding speaking skills and our hearts were touched by her story.
Kindi, your CAPS Vancouver colleagues applaud your rising stardom and wish you luck at the CAPS Convention in Ottawa in December!
