alumni UBC Breakfast Series with Gordon Katic

We always hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And that successful people never eat alone. Keeping these two ideas in mind, alumni UBC offers an intimate breakfast series in Toronto. Get to know fellow UBC alumni in the GTA over a meal, and make connections that will benefit your career, business, and life. Each breakfast features a UBC alum who has been making a mark in their profession, and will be on hand to share their story with you.

The next breakfast in this series will feature Gordon Katic, BA’13, MJ’17, host and producer of the award-winning documentary podcast, Cited (@citedpodcast), producer of Crackdown, a show about drug policy, and the Blue & Goldcast with UBC President Santa J. Ono.

At this breakfast, Gordon will talk about his early experiences in the world of podcasting, share some success stories, and discuss what he thinks makes or breaks a podcast. Bring your questions!
