The Meetings + Incentive Travel (M+IT) Group is pleased to introduce the industry to our new events intern, Jessica Silipo.
Jessica is an honours student in the Tourism and Hospitality Management-Event Planning program at Humber College. With graduation just four months away, she will be working and learning alongside Stephanie Hiltz, event coordinator and Robin Paisley, general manager of M+IT University and IncentiveWorks.
A proud member of Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Toronto Chapter, Jessica is the only student sitting on the 2015 Awards Gala planning committee. She was also featured as an up-and-coming event pro in the January/February 2015 issue of Meeting Magazine.
Jessica has an interest in learning more about sustainability in the events industry. She wants to become a leader in executing sustainable events as well as educate others on the importance of sustainability in the industry. Until then, she feels confident her internship with M+IT will allow her to grow personally and professionally as she develops the skills and tools needed to become successful in her new career.
