I’m doing my first TEDx talk this weekend at Western University and I’m pretty excited about it. The theme is The Human Condition and I’m talking about the internet and myself. I think you will find intersting. PLUS it’s only about 15 minutes! I’m not sure what time I’m on stage yet but I would really love you to watch me. I don’t ask for much and I seriously think it will be entertaining and maybe you’ll even have some feelings.
Last night my sister and I went to visit mum for dinner and had an EPIC sing along to Adele on the way. I will edit the video this weekend but you might pee your pants. This is a small indication of the passion we had performing.
We all went out to buy lotto tickets together and this is my mum on the phone. Is she not the cutest ever. LOVE YOU. I should check mine, imagine I won?
Made me happy to see this on the table at mum’s house. I asked her for dinner to make shepherds pie and self-saucing chocolate pudding like she used to when we were kids. Nothing quite like family time and laughs around the dinner table. Since Scion Canada gave me a car this week I’m trying to make the most of every moment.
I’ll make sure to tell you when my talk is on Saturday as soon as I find out. When I don’t think about it I’m kinda nervous but when I practise and start rehearsing or talking to myself in the mirror. I feel excited!
Hope you’re having a great day 🙂

Hey guys! On Dec. 22nd I’m hosting a session on BLOGGING at The Gladstone Hotel in their new workshop series. Tickets are going fast and I’ve been told there’s just a few more. The night will cover tips and tricks on starting a blog and how to build an audience.
The Get School’d series brings you knowledge on diverse topics such as growing and maintaining a beard, blogging, learning ukulele, indoor gardening, wine tasting etc. The goal is to be fun and educational. I’m planning to take a few upcoming classes myself.
If you’re gonna be there, let me know. Feel free to come with questions, I’d be happy to answer them for you!
Are you in KW? I’m heading to my hometown later this week to speak at Social Summit in Kitchener, and visit my parents of course. It’s been ages since I was back in my old stomping ground so I’m pretty excited to be going there to talk about my travels and adventures over the past few years.
Speakers throughout the morning will enrich the audience with social media tips, tricks, lessons and more. I’ve been added to the mix to share stories from my social media travels around the world with brands and my blog. I’m digging up photos for my presentation and I hope to leave everyone feeling they can accomplish anything they put their mind to. 🙂

If any of you new or old friends want to come out, get a ticket for $20! Use PROMO10 to knock $10 off the $30 ticket. I’d really love to see some familiar faces and make new friends. Thanks to the sponsors, Mad hatter Tech and the Waterloo Region Small Business Centre for having me.
If you’ll be there, especially if we have never met, please say HI. I’m a hugger. (Please don’t call me CASSIE.) My Mum will be there too.
Here’s to a wonderful week! Looking forward to it. 🙂
Ok, this is pretty cool. I got a notification that the NSB (National Speakers Bureau) was going to be sending out a note about ‘Exciting New Speakers‘. Little did I know they’d have a full feature on the website, newsletter, and I’d be amongst some of Canada’s greats including Olympic hockey coach Kevin Dineen, Jennifer Jones from our Olympic curling team, and luxury hotelier Tony Cohen.
I’m available for speaking gigs anywhere in North America. If you’re interested, visit their website and check out my profile. There’s a spot to request more info along the header.
I feel so professional, I mean, I AM a professional, but I actually feel it now. I’m very proud to be one of the speakers on the NSB roster. It’s been a long journey around the world and almost a decade of documenting on the internet. I’ve got a long way to go still! Can’t wait to see what the future holds. 🙂
Next month I’m speaking at CM1, Canada’s Community Manager Conference. I was a panelist at the last one and this round I’ll be speaking about ‘Influencing the Influencers’. I’ve travelled the world and worked with some of the worlds biggest brands and done heaps of work as an as ‘influencer’. It’s been really neat watching the roles of ‘influencer’ and ‘Community Manager’ evolve over the last five years. When I started at MuchMusic/MTV as a ‘Social Media Coordinator’, the role ‘Community Manager’ was almost unheard of. Now, it’s a job you’ll find at almost every agency and client-side brand.
I’ll be sharing my experience and tips for brands and bloggers when it comes to working together. I was recently on CBC in a segment about this very topic (scroll down to March 22, episode).
Follow the conversation for tickets and speaker up dates on Twitter here and take a peek at the other speakers here. I’ll see if I can contest some tickets for you guys to come!
