Pui-Ying Chu, PMP, Technical Partnership Lead, Flipp

Pui-Ying is a Business Analyst turned Project Manager turned Technical Partnership Lead. With projects spanning across industries -- with BlackBerry, Canadian Tire, and Flipp under her belt -- her specialty is bringing order to chaos, and charting out the path to do something that's never been done. Ask her about Long Combination Vehicles if you're curious!


Natalie Festa, CPA, CA, Co-Founder, Boro It

Natalie holds a BBA from Schulich School of Business and a CPA, CA designation having previously worked at KPMG for 4 years. Her passion lies in sustainable fashion and purposeful consumption. She has co-founded a fashion startup called Boro which is a marketplace to rent and list clothing. She has also founded a not-for-profit corporation which recently led her to Tanzania where she worked with a group of artisans helping them develop their handbag business. 

Edward Johnson, PMP, Founder/ CEO, Ikinique Ltd

Edward helps startups, corporates and people to think outside of the box and innovate efficiently to future processes and technologies, including Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, Dronetech, Cybersecurity and AI. Edward is a passionate technologist with many years of leading diverse teams and technological change in Capital Markets and Wealth management sectors across Europe and Asia.

Raymond Lai, Author/ CTO, This is Professional Services

Raymond is the quintessential client-facing nerd: Work with tech and non tech teams and can understand the lingo from all sides. He has been a developer (many moons ago), a professional services consultant, project manager, a leader, a blogger and most recently, co-founder of a software startup (which is just a fancy way of saying Raymond does a little bit of everything). He is a huge proponent for building teams that are functionally dysfunctional - a group of people who will argue, agree, and ultimately achieve great things together. You can find Raymond at

Zlatko Zahirović, Senior Manager IoT, Bell

Zlatko has a love for innovation and is thrilled about taking on the new challenges associated with Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Bell! He brings cutting edge technical knowledge, an inquisitive mind to seek new ways to address the day to day challenges and has a knack to consistently go above and beyond the call of duty. He has a tireless work ethic, a drive for improvement and focuses on delivering outstanding results for customers. There are certainly good PMs and then there are great PMs that make a huge difference!
