Some ramblings on my experiences with public relations

A distinctive event for the Women of Distinction

Because of my communications internship with YWCA Toronto, I got the opportunity to volunteer at the 2008 YWCA Toronto Women of Distinction Awards at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The event went off without a hitch, and it was amazing to see – especially since the attendance list included 1700 PEOPLE.

I wasn’t involved in the planning of the actual event; my role focused on generating media for this year’s recipients, which was an experience in itself. But seeing an event of that magnitude come together so flawlessly was incredible, and really made me realize the enormous amount of details that need to be addressed. Whether it’s media sign-in sheets or a mid-afternoon snack for the volunteers, no detail is too small, and thinking of the things most people wouldn’t even think of is YWCA Toronto’s specialty.

I really have something to aspire to as an event planner now. Though hopefully I can start with less than a thousand people…
