Hey all, wondering if there's any folks interested in a coffee, lunch or drink after work?  I'm thinking the financial district would be the best.

I was thinking just to do something quick and low-key - I'm happy to meet with even one other person!

Hope to hear from you.

I'm definitely interested in a Manager Tools meet-up in Toronto.  Let me know the details.

Hi Chad - I've just had interest via PM from another person.  If you can shoot me an email perhaps we can convene a time and I will post back up here to see if others are interested.

Are you located in the financial district / downtown?

Cheers.

I'm coming from Vaughan, but I'm sure I can find a way if it's in the financial area.

Thursday, May 10 at 5pm at a bar near Union Station - how would that work for people (eg. Real Sports, Jack Astors etc.)?

jdkerr's picture

I'm available to meet that date/time.

Thanks jdkerr - to the other two folks or anyone else, do these times work for you?  If not, is there another time you can suggest?  Both of us can meet downtown easily at most times of the day.
Cheers.

I'd love to Meet-up, and downtown is okay - coming from Mississauga.   Thursday's don't work for me in May (family commitments).  Hopefully we can make schedules work.

Jpdesmarais - can you suggest a date / time that would be good for you?  Actually if you could suggest a couple that might be even better.

I'd love to join as well. Unfortunately, I'll be out of town until Victoria Day weekend. If you wind up meeting before then, I'll hope to catch you next time. I'll be working from Mississauga as well until at least August, but I could make a 6 or 6:30 start time (or later). Tuesdays are generally bad, but not impossible.

Based in Ottawa - where "all your good tax Dollars go to die" - So I'm out of range BUT every now and then I have to turn up in the GTA - if something is up, I'd love to attend.

I like the idea. I'm coming in from Mississagua so the day will be key for me as well.

Suggest we pick a date several weeks out so everyone can block calendars/plan accordingly...maybe mid-June?

How about the last Thursday of the month?  That would be May 31st this month.

Since no place was set for tomorrow, I'm going to assume it's pushed back to the new date.

If people are good with the date, how about the Elephant and Castle? Start @ 5pm?

 The E&C on King in the Entertainment District, or the one on Yonge just north of Eaton Centre? The 31st works just fine for me in either case.

awinnington's picture

I didn't realize there was more then one Elephant and Castle.  The King street location what I was thinking. Hopefully it's not too crowded around that time.

I would love to attend but my boss is in town that week. Hopefully there will be enough interest that we can turn this into a regular event and I can get to a future meeting.

 Looking forward to meeting new folks and revisiting with former conference attendees.

 Ack. Regrettably, I'm going to be out of town on business that day. If another meetup happens, I look forward to meeting everyone then.

Our inaugural Downtown Toronto Manager Tools Meet-Up attracted a small, but enthusiastic, group of managers from several financial services and public accounting firms. The group's shared interest in becoming better managers facilitated warm introductions and a lively discussion of successes and challenges in implementing Manager Tools ideas. But, there is so much more to talk about, so.....

Please join us for the second Downtown Toronto Manager Tools Meet-Up.

Probably go til at least 630 or 7... you may want to wait til our Aug or Sep meeting that is likely to be better attended.

Hey guys -

I've lurked the forums for a while, noticed this thread today, and finally decided to join.  It would be great to meet some MT/CT fans in Toronto if and when another meet-up happens.
