New York City – A Resilient Shining Star

penn 2Shawna and I just returned from New York City where we helped organize a series of events to promote the Ontario Financial Services Industry.

Even after so much devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, New York bounced back stronger than ever. We saw first-hand the power of picking yourself up, dusting off the crap, and moving on.

There are an abundance of incredible venues to use in Manhattan. The beauty of this city is that there are always new places to discover. Here are 2 that we used this past week that we wanted to share with you –

pennThe Bloomberg Tower in the heart of New York City, known as “731” is home to more than 5,500 employees from all of the company’s businesses. Their headquarters set the standard for Bloomberg’s unique and vibrant workspaces, with an emphasis on openness and transparency, health and exercise. At 731, bold colors and dramatic architectural reflect the energy and dynamic spirit that make Bloomberg a hub to the whole world – you can definitely feel the vibe as soon as you walk in. There are several spaces available for meetings and receptions. Security is tight and a list of all attendees must be given in advance. Photo ID of each attendee is required before gaining access. A big shout out to Susanne and Pam, who were fantastic to work with for our event.

The Penn Club of New York (usually referred to as The Penn Club) is a private club located in Midtown treeManhattan, New York City, New York, USA. Its membership is restricted almost entirely to students, alumni, and faculty of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Built in 1900, it’s clubhouse is a fourteen-story building with a library that has a traditional fireplace, fitness facilities, 2 formal dining rooms, function space and guest rooms.

Hope my “Free Idea” makes your Friday!
