Building Dreams

November 26, 2019 – Michele Sands, Business Advisor/Job Developer had the pleasure of attending the 3rd Annual Build a Dream Career Expo held in London on November 26th at the Metroland Media Agriplex. The now annual event inspires young women to learn more about careers in the skilled trades, engineering, technology, emergency services and entrepreneurship. The evening was a chance to hear from successful women, take part in interactive activities and have fun with the photo booth.

If you are looking to learn more about entering into the Trades as a career, feel free to stop by our CEC office at 16B Second Street, Strathroy or give us a call at 519-245-4500.
