Last night YouNxt and the Canada-Poland Chamber of Commerce hosted a networking garden party at the beautiful garden at the Polish Consulate in Toronto and by all accounts the event was a huge success with close to 100 people in attendance.
The event provided young professionals with a chance to network with leaders from various industries and gave entrepreneurs the chance to meet with like-minded individuals.
Among the guests were business professionals, politicians, filmmakers, photographers, fashion designers as well as members of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Toronto, the Polish-Canadian business community and students looking to make some valuable connections.
A delicious dinner and refreshing wine provided much-needed fuel for the intense mingling.
The night’s featured speaker was The Honourable John Wilkinson, Ontario Minister of Revenue who provided an insight into how the newly launched HST would help Ontario entrepreneurs stay competitive.
Also in attendance was Włodzimierz Leszczyński, the Senior Polish Trade Commissioner who travelled all the way from Montreal, as well as Christian Frayssignes, the President of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Toronto, members of other European Union delegations and the Consul General Marek Ciesielczuk of the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Toronto.
