Their flagship nationwide series, The Walrus Talks, is popular and respected, brings together great content, great audiences, and great sponsors, and was chosen as a Signature Initiative for last year's marking of Canada 150. Learn the whys and hows of building successful events from The Walrus's Director of Events, David Leonard, as he shares what The Walrus has learned about using events to support their magazine, and their brand as a whole.
