This week, Award winning journalist, Nick Davis joined our interns and entrepreneurs for an afternoon of insights into the industry.  Davis is currently the Manager of Program Development for the CBC where he is also the Chair of the Inclusion and DIversity Committee.

His willingness to jump in and lead a session about the ins and outs of the industry was appreciated by our program participants because they have been working hard to create Black Matter; a platform that gives voice to the Black community in the GTA. 

“Nicky was instrumental in the success of Toronto’s number one radio program, Metro Morning,” says Marlon Stephens for KPDI Ventures. “As an old colleague and friend, I’m grateful that he continues to support me and the community by giving his time and sharing his knowledge.”

As we continue to develop our programming, KPDI is looking forward to inviting many more successfully professional into our space.
