Thursday, May 30th, the Advertising Club of Toronto proudly presents: Digital Day 2019.

This year’s Keynote Speaker is tech titan Michele Romanow. Ms. Romanow is an engineer and serial entrepreneur who started five companies before her 33rd birthday. A “Dragon” on CBC’s hit show Dragons’ Den, she is the co-founder of Clearbanc, which in 2018 awarded entrepreneurs more than $100 million in funding. Recent accolades include: Finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award, the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards, and the Cartier Women’s Initiative Award. Named in WXN’s “100 Most Powerful in Canada” and listed as the only Canadian on Forbes’ “Millennial on a Mission” list, Digital Day is excited for Michele to bring her incredible entrepreneurial savvy to the stage.
