Our 3rd annual Producers Unite event took place on May 23rd with over 100 freelance and on-staff agency producers gathered at The Spoke Club in Toronto and via live link-up from Vancouver, for an evening of discussion, networking, tasty treats and of course, a few drinks.
The discussion panel of senior heads of production this year featured: Cynthia Heyd, Vice President, Integrated Production at TAXI; Dale Giffen, Producer at John St.; Doug Lowe, SVP, General Manager of Production Services at Cossette; Franca Piacente, VP, Director of Broadcast at Leo Burnett; and Sarah Michener, VP, Manager, Broadcast Production at MacLaren McCann. The discussion was once again moderated by former Boards editor and freelance journalist Rae Ann Fera. This lively session actually ran a half-hour longer than the scheduled one hour thanks to so many great questions from the floor.
Thank you to everyone who made the night such a success. We look forward to seeing you all again next year for Producers Unite 4.
