Great news for Les Clefs d’Or Canada’s Atlantic Region; The Sutton Place Halifax just opened and they have a Clefs d’Or Concierge at the desk!
James Robar, originally a member of the Atlantic Region, is back home after spending a few years in the city of Toronto.
“It feels amazing to be back in my home province. To be part of the opening team of The Sutton Place Hotel – Halifax is a one-of-a-kind opportunity that many never get to experience. I am very excited to show this new luxury property, in the city I love, to the rest of the world.” – James Robar.
I would like to introduce you to our new, young and dynamic LCDC Covid Social Media Task Force.
You may have noticed in recent days a new energy coming out of our various social media platforms. This is not a coincidence, the members of our task force are motivated, tech savvy, well connected, creative and full of new ideas. They are revamping all our accounts, re-energizing them and bringing in new content coming directly from their respective regions and also from our colleagues around the globe. Full access was given to them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin and the Blog.
