CPABC Burnaby/NW and CPABC North Shore/Sunshine Coast Chapters hosted a successful speed networking event on Tuesday, June 4th at Joey Burnaby. The event was an opportunity to connect available mentors and unmatched candidates with one another and form a professional mentor-mentee relationship, for the Practical Experience Requirement, while indulging over delicious food and drinks on the rooftop lounge of Joey’s .

The evening kicked off with an icebreaker game of BINGO followed by a structured speed networking for all mentors and candidates to get to know each other in small groups and were able to ask individual questions to the mentors.

After this structured portion, the event concluded with open networking and the exchange of contact information. The energy remained  positive and high throughout the evening. Not only was the evening a success in that many new connections were made but over 10 candidates went home having found their mentor.
Thank you all who attended!
