Breakfast with the president of a big firm doesn’t happen every day, especially for a student or young professional. Thanks to the organizing committee of Déjeun’aide, this networking breakfast brought together youth with leaders from different industries. In an interactive and intimate setting, the event was held on Friday, November 17th at Centre Mont-Royal. The Déjeun’aide organizers, all members of the Young Leaders Circle of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation, hosted 180 guests who had the chance to interact directly with inspiring mentors.
Sitting at tables of 10, the guests were able to discuss for one hour with one of the leaders they had chosen themselves, for advice and mentoring.
We thank the 25 leaders who took the time to share their experiences, as well as our generous partners who made the morning most enjoyable. In the last two years, the Déjeun’aide committee has donated over $100,000 to the Children’s Foundation benefitting the H.B Williams Craniofacial Surgery and Facial Cleft Unit.
