The name says it all. Let’s Talk!!
If you’ve watched our short promo video, then you’ve seen JADE in action at a Let’s Talk!! event.
Originally Let’s Talk!! events were get-togethers held in person at different venues, including the Amsterdam Brewhouse at Toronto’s Queen’s Quay, C’est What pub near Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market, and Moxie’s Restaurant in Pickering. The pandemic changed that, and our Let’s Talk!! events became online gatherings of JADE members, for example our summer 2022 virtual patio events, with everyone encouraged to have a virtual patio as their Zoom background, and a prize awarded for the best patio.
Let’s Talk!! was a wonderful way to meet fellow JADE members in a relaxed and informal setting, whether in person or online, and to share stories, laughs, ideas, a hug…whatever! Friendship, collegiality and networking were all wrapped up into one big package, and you could drop in and stay for as long as you could. As much as we missed meeting in person over the pandemic, we also loved having JADE members being able to attend virtually from all over the Greater Toronto Area and beyond, the province of Ontario, and even across from across the country. As the summer approaches, we are hoping once again to have the joy of sitting outside together on a patio, and also virtual events – and if the technology allows, maybe even hybrid Let’s Talk!! events that include both kinds of attendance.
However we meet, we hope to see you there, and Let’s Talk!!
