The Rostie Group and kb | KUNLE invite you attend a complimentary Executive Breakfast:

VPX Video Presenting for Executives and Professionals

Live, in person, conducted by Kunle Bristow

Learn to deliver your message effectively when using video [e.g., Skype, YouTube, WebEx, GoToMeeting, Facebook Live, Cisco, Periscope]. Understand how to design a “hook”, the first and most crucial part of any video presentation – and get expert advice about connecting with colleagues and customers when using video.

“It’s not about public speaking and it’s not media training…it’s about getting ready for the brave new world of pervasive video”

This micro-workshop is conducted by Kunle Bristow, a film director with nearly 20 years of experience in drawing out the best performances from executives and video presenters. Kunle appears regularly on national television, HuffPostLive and other video media.

If you have ever worked on a beach before, you know that having an amazing view can be awe-inspiring and get those creative juices flowing. The views from Team Space 103 are expansive, overlooking the recently completed Waterfront renewal, mentioned by The New York Times as one of the top places to explore in Toronto (which has been ranked 7th best city to visit in 2016!). This summer will be humming with excitement right outside your new workspace. You can commute on your bike along the shore, have a picnic lunch in the gardens by the waterfront and catch a Blue Jays game after work, with the Rogers centre and Union station a 5 minute walk away. The diverse and liveliest parts of the city are at your fingertips!

Come and see for yourself what Toronto’s thriving South Core has to offer. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

UN International Day of Happiness!

, , , , , , , ,

It feels good to be happy right?

Why not share the happiness at WaterPark Place this Friday and join us for some fun activities and treats in the Mezzanine and Food Court!

Happiness is what we all strive for – what the media, society and every self-help book and guru out there tells us to seek.

So how do we truly reach a state of happiness and stay there?

Without the down times in life, it would be hard to enjoy the up times.

It would be very odd if we all walked around like the Stepford wives, perpetually smiling…

International Day of Happiness celebrated on March 20th,  is not about superficial and materialistic happiness but rather it is about recognizing that ‘progress’ should be about increasing human happiness and wellbeing, not just growing the economy.

“In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognised happiness as a “fundamental human goal” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples”.

In 2012 the first ever UN conference on Happiness took place and the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which decreed that the International Day of Happiness would be observed every year on 20 March. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013″.

It comes as no surprise that the number one way people describe experiencing happiness is from giving and doing things for others.
