The Event Group: Condoleezza Rice to Speak in Toronto November 2, 2010

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2010) - The Event Group is proud to announce the presentation of Condoleezza Rice on November 2, 2010 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Toronto, Canada.

Rice became one of the most influential women in the world of global politics when President George W. Bush named her as his national security advisor in December 2000. Her role became extremely important after the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York City and the Pentagon in Washington. Rice has played a crucial part in shaping the most aggressive U.S. foreign policy in modern history, with wars launched against Afghanistan and Iraq during her time in office.

This unique speaker event will have Condoleezza Rice focusing her discussion on world affairs, the on-going wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, International trade and the current status of Canada and US relations. Condoleezza Rice will present a formal speech for 40 minutes and then move to a more informal setting with a moderator to answer audience questions. "This event is designed to offer an intimate and thoughtful conversation with Condoleezza Rice, as she offers candid and in-depth responses to international trade, world affairs, and what is happening in the Middle East. Guests will also have an opportunity to ask Condoleezza Rice questions and receive candid responses," stated David Howard, President of The Event Group. This event is being produced by The Event Group and funded by Innovative Events Limited Partnership. "Our world is changing and Condoleezza Rice has been at the fore front of many of these changes. She is the ideal person to give our audience an in-depth look at what is happening around the globe and insight into US and Canada relations," stated Howard.

This event is one of many events The Event Group is planning across Canada. "Our goal is to present high profile, engaging, and unique events, which offer our guests an insider's view of what is happening within the global economy, international affairs, global politics, and current events. The Event Group has been producing events across Canada for the past 12 years and we understand the importance of the guest experience and making sure our guests have a once in a lifetime experience," stated Howard. The Event Group has produced events featuring high profile speakers and entertainers such as: Jerry Seinfeld, Barbra Bush, Ringo Starr, Bonnie Raitt, Vice President Al Gore, Paul Anka, General Colin Powell, Bill Cosby, Dr. Alan Greenspan and many more.
