What my clients and students say…

Connie Smith has been an integral part of Community Living Burlington’s Annual Easter Auction. Her vibrancy, enthusiasm, and professionalism has enabled our event to raise over $75,000 in the last four years, with all proceeds benefiting people who have a developmental disability in our local community. We have truly enjoyed working with Connie every step of the way. Connie is a real inspiration – she is community-minded, generous, and dedicated. We look forward to working with Connie in our future endeavours.

 Connie became involved with Pythons’ Pit, our regional entrepreneurship competition hosted by Rotary Clubs in Halton Region in our second season.

She’s done an outstanding job, hosting our TV segments and the Awards Night, which this year drew over 500 spectators and participants.

I love her passion and professionalism. She brings events to a whole different level.

 I have had the pleasure of working with Connie in my capacity as President of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. As emcee of the Chapter’s annual National Philanthropy Day event, Connie is a familiar face and brings smiles and warmth to our guests. As a veteran journalist, she engages the audience in a personal and professional way. Connie was the co-host of the annual McMaster Children’s Hospital Celebration on CHCH News in support of McMaster Children’s Hospital for many years. She is a devoted community volunteer to many charities in the Golden Horseshoe communities.

 I’ll never forget my time at Mohawk in your public relations class. It was one of my favorite classes not because of the subject matter but because of you and the way you engaged your students really made things more interesting and created a learning experience that got me interested in the subject matter. It takes a very skilled teacher to figure out how a student ‘ticks’ and you definitely have that gift!
