Holiday Trivia @ The Rostie Group

Thank you to everyone who joined on Friday, December 14th for our Holiday Trivia event! A great time and a lot of laughs were had.

Take a look at the gallery of photos below for the event.

Our next Holiday event is our Annual Holiday Breakfast on Tuesday, December 18th starting at 8 am. Don’t miss it!

Corporate Event Venues

Corporate Event
Choosing a venue for a Corporate event can be difficult. Not only do you have to balance the cost (to keep the accounting department happy), but you also have to make sure all the attendees have what they need. Not only in terms of space on a table and a place to sit. But also in terms of comfort: atmosphere in the venue, proximity to transit or available parking, and even if they have catering available. (Work doesn’t get done on an empty stomach).

These elements can all be difficult to balance for a regular event. But a Corporate event requires extra planning.

Decisions made at the Corporate level can affect entire companies, thousands of workers, and even global economies. It’s important to know that the time spent in these events by the heads of large Corporations cost thousands by the hour, in salaries alone.

To make level headed decisions, event attendees need to be content. They can’t be distracted by the temperature being slightly off or a malfunctioning piece of equipment.

There are many ways you can research the perfect event space. But looking them up online is only one part of the equation: You’ll see the best pictures and the best angles. Make sure you go through the effort to find the best Corporate event venue for your team. 

It’s a good thing that you’re reading this then, because here at The Rostie Group, we’ve perfected Corporate events. The decorations of our rooms can match any corporate office. We’re steps from Union station, and have parking available. We provide full catering with a delicious menu that will please even the most particular of people.

So when you’re doing research on where to host your next event, make sure to book a visit with The Rostie Group. Come see our rooms in person, and you’ll see why we are the best choice. 

Egg Painting Competition

We’d like to thank everyone so much for coming down and joining us to paint some Eggs.

We’ve discovered that it’s actually a very nice way to de-stress. Very relaxing and creative. And no, you don’t have to be an artist to enjoy painting an egg.

Here is a Gallery of all of the eggs! All of them are great!

But of course, there can only be one Winner! (At least this time)

Congrats Puneet!

Former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer Lunch ‘n’ Learn.

Join The Rostie Group Work Community in celebrating the Honourable Paul T. Hellyer, former Minister of National Defence. Mr. Hellyer is a Canadian engineer, politician, writer and commentator who has had a long, successful and varied career. He is the longest serving current member of the Privy Council of Canada. Mr. Hellyer is 93 years old and still a spirited member of Canadian politics and global issues.

 

In early September 2005, Hellyer made headlines by publicly announcing that he believed in the existence of UFOs. The first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.”

 

Former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer is still as active as ever and deeply engaged in a wide variety of world issues, arguably the most urgent of which is the world monetary and financial system. Mr. Hellyer’s most recent book “The Money Mafia” (2014) exposes perceived fault lines in our banking and financial systems and explains how unemployment could be cut in half in two years and worldwide prosperity restored. Mr. Hellyer has written many books throughout his career on the world and Canadian economics, extraterrestrial life, and Canadian life.

 

Paul Hellyer has been a part of the Rostie work community for over fifteen years. He is also one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians. We welcome you in meeting Paul Hellyer and participating in an engaging discussion on the many projects and achievements of Mr. Hellyer’s career. Come out to our friendly Lunch ‘n’ Learn featuring Paul Hellyer on Tuesday August 30th, 2016 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Find out more about Mr. Hellyer’s fascinating and influential life and what his work means for our future.

Top 10 Choices for Winter Fun on the Waterfront!

ART:

  • Stay warm and feed your eyes and your ears with Quebec artist Patrick Bernatchez’s installation work on now until May 15, 2016 at The Power Plant Art Gallery. Immerse yourself in the changing seasons, pondering the cycle of life and death, rebirth and what time really means. Great for a date or friends to visit, and its FREE!  Find the Power Plant at 231 Queens Quay W.

Five exhibitions at The Harbourfront Centre organized in conjunction with the Toronto Design Offsite Festival. You will be confused in the most positive way possible, and pushed to the limits of design, art and craft. This event is also FREE, because you know it’s better by the water!

  • “The City of Toronto, in partnership with OCAD University, has launched a temporary, digital art installation at Union Station. The interactive exhibit, called Memory Capsule, pays tribute to the venerable station and cherished public space, which is undergoing a major revitalization”. There you have it! Taking the subway can be boring, but Union station has ramped up the artistic exposure with this installation, taking us all to the next level, and down to the Waterfront of course!
