We offer extensive exposure both in print and online. We market our events through direct mail, email, fax and online at www.workplace.ca.

"It was a great pleasure for Malcolm and I to be invited to present at the IPM's 2012 Toronto conference. The IPM is an excellent organization and this conference is one of the best on offer for professional human resources managers. The high degree of audience engagement with the presenters, and the insight drawn from these discussions, make the IPM conference an outstanding learning experience for everyone involved. This is the second year in a row that we have presented at this conference, and are so impressed we would be more than happy to return again."

"I wanted to pass along my sincere thanks for the opportunity to present at two separate IPM events this year. The level of support and care that you exhibit for both the speakers and attendees is truly exemplary. You can feel it in every interaction. The format is also great and allows for wonderful interaction and dialogue throughout the day. It is a privilege to be a part of your network of events and I look forward to continuing to work together in the future."
Craig Dowden, Ph.D., Managing Director, SPB Organizational Psychology Inc.
"Thank you for the opportunity to speak at IPM's Spring Conference. I am glad that our session went well. It really was nice to finally meet you and your awesome team- they are so nice! You run a tight ship- I like that. Thank you again for the opportunity".
"IPM is a first class organization that puts on first class events. Attendees are engaged in an informal setting that promotes the sharing of ideas and experience. Two presenters dealing with the same topic but from different points of view provides attendees with an understanding and perspective not usually learned at other conferences. It is an innovative format. And one that works."
Dan Palayew, B.A, LL.B
"I have always enjoyed the IPM events, both as a speaker and as a participant. The events attract high quality leaders from diverse backgrounds and sectors, which always enhance my learning and my network. The themes are always topical and current. You leave with your brain engaged and you always take something back to the office."
"Thank you having given me the opportunity to present at your recent Toronto Conference. Your audience of HR and administrators from various industry sectors is a target market for us. Having contributed articles to your IPM Associations Members Quarterly Newsletter over the past year, it was beneficial to get more insight from members and subscribers at the conference. I was also impressed with the level of professionalism which was visible from initial contact last year to the actual event itself. You keep your speakers well-informed and involved, market and promote well, handle logistics effectively and run a first-class conference. I look forward to working with you and IPM again in the future."
Philip Gennis, LL.B, CIRP
"I wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed working with IPM in putting on the presentations. Your events are well organized and, as a presenter, it is a pleasure to deal with you. I particularly appreciate your requirements for quality control to ensure that the participants receive the maximum amount of benefit from attendance and to ensure that they come back for more. Conducting the presentations has been beneficial for us as we have acquired several new clients (and had the opportunity to keep in touch with existing ones). We have shown an excellent return for the minimal time and effort required in putting on the presentations."
David Ray, B.A., LL.B.
"Working with IPM is always a positive experience. The added bonus of having articles published in your newsletter enhanced our exposure right across Canada. We still work with clients whom we met at our first IPM workshop years ago, with new clients and leads coming on board at each event. Your attention to detail and your sense of commitment to both presenters and your audience makes working with your group a pleasure."
