SIP Heartwarming Holiday Networking Dinner: Every Participant Has Power!

Once again, a terrific holiday dinner for SIP in conjunction with Life Transformation Institute was held at the Bright Pearl, a historic landmark of Toronto on November 24, 2009.

Over 40 people enjoyed a seven-course meal along with the opportunity to win some wonderful door prizes.

A stimulating and fun Speakers’ Contest made the evening even more entertaining with all of the participants getting public acknowledgment for their speaking endeavors and talents.

But, this heartwarming event would not have happened without the hardworking efforts of the great volunteers.

We were very pleased with the outcome but don’t just take our word for it – read some of the heartwarming comments given below:

"… Max, I just want to say from the bottom of my heart thank you so much for your kindness and understanding. My friend Deka and I enjoyed the wonderful event that you put together. I personally think that you are an extraordinary person and it was pleasure to meet you…" Maryan

"… Thank you for having us last night, we met some great people. Thank you for making the evening so successful …"
Mimi Lee, Director of Operations, Cg6 Inc.

"… What a pleasure it was to attend last night's event - thank you so much for a lovely and profitable meeting…"
Kim Taylor-Galway, Perfect 10 Communication

"… Narmin and I enjoyed ourselves, and the great company, and making many new connections. Did you take the Life Quiz? …"
Karim H. Ismail, Best selling author: Keep ANY Promise

"... This was a very impressive, passionate and committed group …"
Attila Lendvai, The Atlas Project

"... We had a terrific seven-course dinner and an opportunity to speak and to top it all we all had FUN … giving us some memorable moments.…"
D. A. (Di) Wright, author, teacher and a career coach

We were glad to see the mingling, exchanging of business cards and engaged discussions during the dinner and the dedicated Networking session, a networking game ensured that each one met more than seven people.
Many thanks to the wonderful generosity of those who donate prizes and bought raffle tickets.
