On Thursday, April 18, 2013, the Halton Industry Education Council (HIEC) presented the fourth annual Men as Career Coaches (MACC) event at the Burlington Convention Centre. 

The event brought together over 350 male students and adult men from the community, showcasing Halton’s strong and thriving culture of mentorship.

“This was my first time coming to this event and it was the best night of my life,” said one student attendee. “This event was very helpful and motivating. It helped me realize to chase my goals and not give up.”

The audience, made up of secondary school students and volunteers from across the GTA, heard from four spotlight speakers over the course of the night, representing a wide range of career pathways. Speakers included Jonathan Hood, Toronto Argonauts player; Hans Gerhardt, Former President and Marketing Director, Toronto’s Sutton Place Hotel; Sheldon Walker, Handyman, S.A.W. Renovations; and Richard Cooper, Chairman of the Board, Cardinal Couriers Ltd.

Along with inspirational videos and several opportunities for the men to share stories, compare generational experiences and inspire one another, the night concluded with keynote speaker Chris Cummins, a professional speaker and author of the upcoming book You Can’t Do That! – Oh Yeah? Watch Me!
