Professional Highlights

On Friday, June 24, 2016 I welcomed His Royal Highness, The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex to Calgary for three events.

With six weeks notice I started by setting my goals and objectives.  What did I want to achieve from this Royal visit?  Ultimately I decided on three goals:

  1. To raise money for the program.
  2. To raise awareness across Alberta.
  3. To re-engage with former alumni.

With that in mind I set out planning a VIP luncheon, Gold Awards Ceremony, and Youth Performance Reception for over a 1,000 guests.


The day was a huge success!

Candace’s professionalism, pro-active attitude and knowledge helped elevate our organization to a level that was previously unattainable. As a collaborative team member, Candace managed important project work, helped the Board build a solid organizational foundation (governance, admin, funding), and worked directly with our members and stakeholders from across Canada.

Candace is an exceptionally talented professional with a keen eye for detail and measurable impact. She is also a kind, supportive and down-to-earth person with a practical approach to making great visions a reality. As I write this recommendation, I’m recalling with admiration the number of people in our network who also value her positive leadership and expertise. A true pleasure to work with.
