Quebec, Monday November 20, 2023 – The directors of the 28e Gala for the next generation of communications, Laurence Gosselin and Marie-Laurence Caron, are proud to announce the appointment of Kathy Marquis as honorary president and host! With more than ten years of experience in the field as a sales director at Quebecor Media as well as at KO Media, Kathy is a major asset in the realization of the Gala which will be held on March 22, 2024 at the Salle du Quai du Cap-Blanc.
Kathy Marquis as president and host
Known for her ease and warm approach, Kathy knows how to combine her personal values with her passions. She is also involved in numerous causes, in addition to being a recurring columnist on the radio and producing and hosting her own podcast, Sidechick Generation. She wears all of these hats in a natural and authentic way, fully investing in everything she does. It was her knowledge of current trends and her business sense that immediately won over the directors of the Emerging Gala.
“In our eyes, Kathy perfectly embodies the vision we have of the 28e Gala, while being a perfect figure of the next generation; bold, creative and passionate. Although the committee generally has a separate honorary president and facilitator, it seemed inconceivable to us that Kathy would only occupy one of the two roles. As much through her experience in the field as through her job as a facilitator, she will be able to put her vast knowledge to good use”, underline Laurence Gosselin and Marie-Laurence Caron, co-directors of the committee.
“I am truly honored to have the chance to play these two roles and thus, to get closer to the next generation. I believe it is important to minimize the distance between different generations in order to offer a profitable future to the field of communication. I can't wait to see what we create together! », mentions Kathy Marquis, president and host of the 28th presentation.
The Quai du Cap-Blanc, an exceptional room
For 28e presentation of the event, it was the Quai du Cap-Blanc room that won the hearts of the directors. Located on Champlain Boulevard, the glass room offers a breathtaking view of the river, while offering a festive and warm atmosphere that goes hand in hand with the committee's brilliant vision. This year again, the evening promises to be a perfect networking opportunity for students and professionals in the field!
