In this episode of the ‘Where People Meet’ podcast, we are joined by Connie Cay-Santos, Founder and CEO of CAY VII INC, a rapidly growing event production agency operating out of Richmond Hill, Canada. In addition to her role as an entrepreneur, Connie lends her expertise to Quest Audio Visual as their Director of Engagement Strategies and she’s also a Strategic Partner for Engamio, an event gamification platform. And if you thought that was impressive, it doesn’t end there - Connie also serves as the Vice President of Communications and Strategic Partnerships for the Toronto Chapter of Meetings Professionals International.
Connie is a true testament to the power of finding your calling and how to pivot and enact change in a meaningful way. Needless to say, we were incredibly lucky to have Connie sit down to answer a few questions about her background in the meetings and events industry, how she made the transition from her role at the Hudson’s Bay Company and built her own personal brand, what her entrepreneurial journey has been like, how she manages to take on multiple projects at once, and what she has planned next for her team at Cay VII. As always, we close out the episode by asking Connie to provide listeners who are looking to unlock the true potential of their careers with some actionable tips and tricks.
