Stronger Together

February 23, 2015 @ 6:30 pm to 11:00 pm


Developing a structure for a shared service initiative

Presented by Nordicity | This workshop will educate creative industry stakeholders to how shared services can help them to achieve core goals. With an informative seminar providing information on shared services as well as best practices, “Stronger Together” will teach creative industry professionals how to make sense of the world of besieged donors, overtaxed corporations and belt-tightening governments.

New digital technology has enabled the automation of some administrative tasks and remote services are now routine. Today the cloud is a reality and mobile personal communications are “everyday.” In this environment, there is the potential to attain enhanced organizational productivity, knowledge sharing, cost savings and other efficiencies though the introduction of shared services between like-minded organizations, such that more time can be focused on content creation, programming and other core mandates.

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Mark Jamison, CEO, Magazines Canada
  • Diane Davy, Executive Director, WorkInCulture (Co-developers of SpaceFinder Toronto)
  • Terry Kyritsis, President and CEO, OECM
