Getting down to business

September is traditionally a time for Manitobans to bid adieu to the carefree days of summer and roll up their sleeves to prepare for what lies ahead. It’s a sentiment that is reflected in the current issue of the Epic Achievements newsletter. We start off with a look at Manitoba Tourism Education College (MTEC) and how it’s helping people find careers in the local hospitality industry. We also salute long-time Administrative Assistant Heidi MacArthur for her hard work over the years as she prepares for life after Epic Opportunities. And finally, we provide details about the upcoming An Evening With Epic fundraiser set for Nov. 3 at the Viscount Gort Hotel.
