Campaign Manager Training

I am sitting in a room of Liberals in downtown Toronto, listening to a series of presentations delving into the details around communications and campaign management. What strikes me is how similar these discussions are to those I have been a part of in many businesses.

Good management of the product and brand. Good control of the message. Motivation of workers. Incentives for workers. Marketing to prospects.

More later. Maybe even some pics.

When will the Next Federal Election happen in Canada?

I put out a survey asking for people's opinion on when we will have the next Federal election in Canada. The initial results as of now are shown in the chart. I will update it as more results come in.

Update 1: March 7, 2011 – 00:01 While the majority expect an election in May, the majority of respondents identify themselves as Liberals. Interesting.

I would appreciate if you could visit the survey and add your opinions. Look for the subtle humour in the questions.

The four part, biweekly Lunch & Learn series on Human Rights and Diversity in the Workplace kicked off with a bang on February 23rd. Karen. Dr. Karen Mock, outstanding lecturer, expert in human rights and women’s issues and the Federal Liberal candidate in Thornhill.

The response to the first lunch of the series was excellent, with a diverse group of women learning new things and participating in wonderful conversation. Congratulations to the Power of Women Exchange for such a successful engagement.

All Politics is Local

There is a small subculture of political animals. They include the backroom people, the talking heads, the policy wonks, the koolade drinkers and a few more species. Then there are the rest of us. We watch the news and keep track of what is happening in our country and our world. We sometimes watch the political animals roaring about real and perceived slights and issues, subtly discounting much of it as noise. We regret that there is so much noise going on in the capital that the positive things most of us agree on rarely seem to progress.

When it comes time for an election, some Canadians barely pay attention. Others, including myself, look to see which candidates and which parties most reflect our interests and philosophies. We see this as important because we have to trust that our representatives, once elected, will passionately and effectively reflect our interests.

As we come closer to the next federal election (not saying when, just that it will inevitably come) I look to people who I have known for years and watched gather impressive accomplishments. Once such is my friend, Karen Mock.

Elect Karen Mock MP for Thornhill

You can start to learn about Karen from her candidate web site, at http://karenmock.liberal.ca. But to get the full picture, Google her. You will begin to understand my support. Karen is a woman who leads both by consensus and with strength.

Have a look. Do your research. I am confident that you will be impressed with Karen.
