Let's Make Networking Awkward Again

Have you always wanted to attend a networking event, but could never find time due to your busy schedule? Household duties, children, and the pure awkwardness of a networking event can hinder most professionals from making an appearance. Fear no more! Canadian Tamil Professionals Association (CTPA) will be hosting its first outdoor event: Let's Make Networking Awkward Again, Ondrukoodal Style FT Soccer Tournament! These are the reasons why most don't even attend their Ondrukoodal events. We want to help change the reality and fear of networking by creating a space that is fun, natural and keeps everyone under the sun with a game of soccer! There’s no better way to network easily and quickly, than on the field. Come out and enjoy some popcorn, cotton candy and get involved in some casual mixers, while the kids are getting their faces painted! This is a family friendly event.
