publishers' note Brand YOU At Ignite we're not just big on you, the event planner. We're also big on you, the consummate professional. With that in mind, here's our thought for the day: How are you perceived by your peers and co-workers: Are you seen as a born leader? The one that always goes the extra mile? The wise mentor? It's worth taking an objective step back to review your personal and professional persona and then adjust, fine-tune or escalate as required. Finish this sentence: I am or want to be known as the person that always________ (enter personal/ professional trait here). Then be true to your style, your brand. Ignite sends hearty congratulations to recently announced industry leaders—fabulous people who have clearly defined who they are and how they're perceived: Volunteer: Mentor: Builder: Planner: Innovator: Rising Star: Veteran: Sheila Wong Judy Healey Trevor Lui Betty-Anne Shearer Doreen Ashton-Wagner Danyelle McCullough Ralph Strachan With summer almost behind us and noses back to the grindstone, we wish to remind you to mark your calendar to attend or exhibit at the 3rd Annual Ignite Business Event (iBE) Expo, June 18 &19, 2014, in Toronto. What's our brand essence? We've been told: iBE's a quality, upscale source of ideas and inspiration that's Absolutely Unique.
