Guest Host: Jim DeLeskie

Membertou Trade & Convention Centre (map)
50 Maillard Street, Membertou

This gathering will also be broadcast live via our YouTube Channel.

At February’s TecSocial, you'll hear about an exciting youth internship program in development at Protocase. ‎The new program will give participants an opportunity to do highly relevant work in Cape Breton's innovation sector as well as a chance to learn and understand the impressive breadth and depth of the sector.

Candidates can expect a competitive application process for this unique experience, as the positions will be highly sought after. Protocase will be the home base for the term, but participants will also do work exchanges with other innovation-based companies to learn more about the sector. The plan is that other local companies will join and offer positions as a home base, allowing the exchange to be among several companies.

Our presenter will be Cathy McPherson from Balance Beam Consulting. She is working with Protocase to deve‎lop the program and get it rolling. Cathy is a human resources professional specializing in talent, people and change management. For more than 17 years, she’s been designing successful people strategies for Fortune 500 companies in the financial services, consumer packaged goods, and pharmaceutical industries. Learn more about Cathy.

Bob Pelley is away this week, so Jim DeLeskie has graciously offered to host and broadcast this month's event. ‎(Thank you, Jim!)
