We boarded the Kajama at 5:30 p.m. in the humid summer air to the sweet voices of the Waterfront Singing Ambassadors…

The Rostie Group and all the tenants and friends who joined us enjoyed sipping refreshing drinks, sailing along the Queens Quay Harbourfront. The Toronto skyline never looked better from out on the lake. It is a view everyone –  Torontonians and tourists alike –  must experience.

The crew on the Kajama were exceptional, getting some of us to help raise the gigantic sails and singing while they worked!

Everyone was surprised when the ship was back in the harbour docking, had it been 2 hours already?!?

A great summer social for everyone, thank you Toronto Waterfront, Kajama crew and The Waterfront Singing Ambassadors for being such an amazing part of our work community!

Happy Birthday Coworking

, , , , , ,

The newest buzzword ‘Coworking’ is here to stay and its taking the world by storm with over 2500 coworking spaces now operating across the globe.

It was August 9th 2005 that Brad Neuberg opened the first collaborative workspace, called Spiral Muse, and dubbed it “coworking”. He was quickly joined by other early coworking leaders like Tara Hunt & Chris Messina, who were original founders of the Hat Factory (along with Brad Neuberg and a few others), and finally Citizen Space, which is still a thriving coworking space to this very day in San Francisco.

Join us in celebrating Coworking’s 10th birthday and try a FREE week of coworking at The Rostie Group!

The Global Workspace Association’s annual conference was a success!

The 28th Annual GWA Conference was held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida from September 10-13. The Rostie Gorup had a blast. Charles Anderson describes his experience:

The first few days involved day long information sessions that were immensely captivating and educational. The actual workshop portions of the conference were certainly awesome however they were only a portion of what make the GWA conference as great as it was. The people are probably what I took away as the most enriching portion of the week. Connections with people all over the world all evolving at the same time as you, working in the same industry as you and being able to pick said people’s minds was simply fantastic. Not to mention the great food throughout, and just being in South Beach, Florida at all!

Thanks for my Sight Night – 25th Anniversary of the Eye Foundation of Canada

Thanks for my Sight Night

The Rostie Group is a proud supporter of the Eye Foundation of Canada and would like to invite you to the EFC’s annual Gala – Sight Night! Our very own Charles Anderson recently travelled to India for a pioneering eye surgery and we want to bring attention to and support the Eye Foundation of Canada. Eyesight is often taken for granted but it is something quite precious that we must acknowledge and support. Charles will be speaking at the Eye Foundation’s Sight Night about his journey and we would love to invite you to attend.

WHY?

  • Sight preservation does more to maintain the quality of our lives than anything else.
  • The number one cause of blindness in adults is diabetes.
  • The risk of getting cataracts severe enough to restrict driving ability by age 80 is almost 100%.
  • Vision is precious to each and every one of us.

WHERE? Montecassino Woodbridge (140 Jevlan Drive)

Sight Night

Antipasto Bar – 6:30 PM
Dinner – 7:30 PM
Open Bar
Silent Auction & Raffles
Music & Dancing
Tickets: $125.00 per person

The Eye Foundation of Canada (EFC):

  • EFC has raised community awareness by organizing The Toronto Glaucoma Initiative (TGI) and “Sight Days with the Blue Jays” in collaboration with CNIB. EFC has also sponsored several in-house ophthalmic research studies and funded external research grants in diverse areas of ophthalmology.
  • Since 1991, EFC awards summer scholarships to outstanding medical students to encourage them to pursue academic careers in ophthalmology. A joint western EFC branch was established in Calgary and Edmonton in 2012 to better serve the Prairies and British Columbia. To date, over 30 of Canada’s leading ophthalmologists owe their start to your generous donations to EFC. In fact, Sight Night and other EFC efforts have raised over $1,000,000 to preserve eyesight! To continue its success, The Eye Foundation of Canada needs your support at Sight Night 2014. Sight Night is an opportunity to meet interesting people over a delicious meal with entertainment.

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! – Talk Like a Pirate Day

,

talk like a pirate

Toronto’s Waterfront Workspace and Conference Centre was under siege by buccaneers for International Talk like a Pirate Day! There was plunder from sunken ships in the lounge, including a treasure chest filled with sweet treats for all. Our team was dressed in their best pirate attire while practicing their “Yars!” in good spirits.

Speaking of good spirits, the winner of our Funniest Pirate Joke Contest is Phil from PMC Specialist Recruiting Solutions! Check out his joke after the jump!

Why did the pirate have red eyes? Because he had too much seaweed!

A jolly good time was had by all!
