Young professionals will be given an exclusive opportunity to network with some of Oakville and the surrounding area’s most high-powered and influential executives at GenNext Oakville’s Beers, Peers and Spheres (of Influence) event on January 13, 2015 at Sheridan College Theatre.

The evening will feature door prizes, casual mingling time, and three rounds of Q&A sessions that will allow guests to sit down with three different executives from sectors of his or her choice and engage them in meaningful dialogue.

“This is a difficult time for young professionals to gain momentum,” says Geoff Gibson, Chair of the GenNext Cabinet. “Members of the GenNext demographic are more educated than ever, yet much of their potential is underutilized. They need opportunities to make the connections that will build their careers, and this event is a chance to do that.”

Many highly recognized names are scheduled to attend the event, including:

  • David Brennan, Chief of Staff, Office of the Mayor and Council
  • Carole Crowe, Superintendant, Halton Regional Police Services
  • Ken Coulter, CEO, The Coulter Creative
