Custom EventsWe've held incredible live & social events of all sizes with vendors just like you for over 10 years.

Check out an example of an excellent event with NetApp
We had roughly 60 people attend, and excellent response from attendees and NetApp.

  • - "Great event and GREAT turnout for a Monday!!!! I could see how appreciative your community was to be back together. Thanks for your partnership with us."

  • - "Thank you Steve for hosting this event! Look forward to working with you in the future.”

  • - "Thank you very much for facilitating such a great event! I really enjoyed it and I think the community did as well."

Here are a few potential event formats:

- Social event: Bring the community together to get the word out. Casual, friendly, 1-1 conversations and networking.- Talk + Social: Present on a topic or your product, book-ended by cocktails. Deliver a message without being too formal.- Round table dinner & Drinks: Intimate and impressive. Maximize impact with target accounts.- Round table dinner & Open community drinks: The best of both worlds. Intimate time with clients and prospects, and broad connection to the larger community.Depending on the details and scope, budget $3-10K.That includes direct access to community, pre+post messaging, event posting, surveys, promotional graphics, logistic assistance & my facilitation at the event to assist with maximizing attendee experience and your connection to the community.Venue costs are typically $20-40 minimum spend per attendee depending on what is supplied. The typical approach is two drink tickets per attendee, which is usually far more than enough. The most cost effective option is likely just an open but restricted bar tab, which would likely run far below that minimum spend.Pairing with a meetup sponsorship ($2500 annually) will allow you to promote a dedicated event directly at an upcoming monthly session and capitalize on an extended presence in the community, as well as benefit from an extended engagement.If you want to run through a specific scenario or begin planning next steps, feel free to book time with me here.

DevOps includes Diversity, Collaboration, Empathy and Inclusion

DevOps Toronto (and our DevOps Days conference) works hard to ensure our participants and reach include the broadest range of individuals we can. We understand that diversity and inclusion improve ideas, discourse, experiences and results.Toronto is an incredible city because of its diversity. The city is in the 'Dish With One Spoon Territory'. The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. This heritage informs how we should approach collaboration and inclusion in the present and future.Below is a slightly modified (to include our meetup as well) copy of content we posted on DiversityCharter.org (and we encourage you to participate as well!)

DevOps Toronto is committed to including diverse and underrepresented voices in our community, at our meetup and annual conference.

We do our absolute best to reach out to communities, representatives and members of underrepresented demographics to include them and invite them to join us.Each year we personally invite underrepresented voices to speak and submit talks to our CFP, as well as providing support and guidance to new voices in the form of CFP workshops and coaching.Our organizing team and volunteers is carefully chosen to be diverse and inclusive, to ensure we have ideas and participation from a broad spectrum of experiences and backgrounds. We appoint a diversity, outreach and inclusion representative each year to hold us accountable to the highest standards.We ensure our selected program reflects the diversity and representation we wish to see in our participants. We have a clear and strict code of conduct specifically acknowledged by all involved in the conference, whether they are organizing, speaking, attending or sponsoring. It's not just for show either, we've had to act on its behalf several times over the years to remind, confront and remove disruptive participants and protect our environment.In order to make as many participants feel welcome and comfortable we offer our speakers:
- Travel and accommodation support for out-of-town speakers
- Childcare or financial assistance that would help with the time obligation
- Free tickets for partners
- Speaker coaching available to assist with material, delivery or practice
- All meals, receptions and activities included at no cost
- Comfy, well equipped and quiet private speaker lounge
- Accessibility accommodations
We offer free tickets to underrepresented individuals to ensure everyone who wishes to attend can do so. Find out more about that here.We choose accessible and well equipped venues and work to ensure everyone who wishes to attend or speak can easily do so. We offer a quiet room and nearby childcare options to our attendees.A portion of our proceeds is committed as donation back to local Toronto diversity initiatives to support their efforts. We connect with diversity, equity and inclusive groups as community sponsors to share their work and presence with our audience.We're also committed to acknowledging our history and heritage by reminding our participants of the previous indigenous occupants of land we now use for events and gatherings.Including all affected, involved and invited through our thoughts and actions allows us to be the most positive community for everyone.We're always open to ideas and iteration on all of our efforts to continuously improve - please connect with us to be a part of it!
