Like many companies in Victoria, you may be faced with a continuous challenge: finding experienced talent. You may have even tried looking across borders in order to fill seats in your Victoria office. However, immigrating new hires is a can of worms you're afraid to open, or just don't have enough knowledge on. Please join us over lunch as David Aujla, Canadian Immigration lawyer, puts on a presentation to better inform us all on immigration, and takes your questions.

Board Development: Planning Good Board Meetings and Running Them Well

Date:
