Rachel Porteous
Ottawa Chapter President

“As the President of the Ottawa Chapter I have been amazed by the quality of speakers we have had. Over the last two years, we have heard about real life experiences of those going through digital transformation (Canada Blood Aercidea and Microsoft), we’ve heard from amazing speakers in the area of cyber security (Canadian Centre for Cyber Exchange CCTX and Communication Security Establishment) and areas such as 5G and Innovations.” What an incredible learning opportunity.”
