Grand Prix in Montreal: Friday night at the McLaren party at the Ritz-Carlton

Tue, 2016-06-14 14:26

Going through the foyer to the ballroom, we bumped into regulars of this yearly Soirée: radio host Mitsou and her husband Iohann Martin. TV host and producer Eric Salvail, radio and TV host Isabelle Racicot with husband music executive Donald Robins. Also there, TV host and producer Herby Moreau. It wasn’t long before I got to catch up with Montreal notables Lynn and Andy Nulman, McGill professor Karl Moore, restaurateur Carlos Ferreira (Euro-chic in green pants). And, wanting to get some Just For Laughs exclusives, I cozied up to its COO, Bruce Hills: no dice.

He was working as a manager at IBM in Toronto when a new person joined his department. Up until then Moore had been part of his boss’s “favoured inside circle” — but suddenly everything changed.

Introverts can make great networkers—that’s what really came home to me last night. Rather than acting like my usual extroverted self at a group gathering, I thought I should network half the time like an introvert, and it worked like a charm!

WestJet won't serve complimentary meals on London flights

Wed, 2016-06-01 11:41

WestJet has been flying from Vancouver to London since May 6th, and unless you pay for a seat in the Plus cabin, you’ll have to buy a meal or bring your own if you want to eat during the nine-hour flight. This is the first Canadian carrier to offer a trans-Atlantic flight without the traditional free meal.
