Here are a couple of testimonials received so far:

“I have been a part of the YPN for some time now and I must say, the value does not stop. I have had an opportunity to meet and develop relationships with dozens of active young professionals in the community, generate business, and now, we even hired someone we met from the group who was there for her first time. Keep it up YPN.” Rob Murray, Intrigue Media

“I have had such a positive experience with the Young Professionals Network. Through YPN I have connected directly with the community and established many professional business relationships.” ~ Lisa Lawless, Lawless Creative

“I found the networking to be much, much better last night than the ones I have been attending through the Kitchener Chamber and their BA5.”
