Come Back, Give Back

"I really enjoyed Johanne Bélanger, the keynote speaker at this year’s RHAA Keynote Breakfast. As a young female professional, her presentation was easy for me to relate to. Her story about her decision to change her career was very reassuring and motivational. I also really appreciated how she introduced herself to everyone in the room individually before the presentation. I had a great time."

- Carla Maya, fourth year student, Hospitality and Tourism Management
