In addition to all of the incredible people from Sparkrock we have leading sessions, we have also brought in some industry experts from other organizations who are ready to wow you with their knowledge. Keep reading to find out what we have in store for you at Fuel Good 2018!

She is also a pro when it came to utilizing their CRM in unique ways. Marj Cromb was a 25+ year veteran at TVO, having worked in television production (in front of- and behind the camera), marketing, sales, product licensing, philanthropy, product management, business process engineering, before finally finding herself in IT. Marj led a team of developers, project managers, and business process engineers that is accountable for internal business systems and processes for TVO, the technological extension of Ontario’s public education system.
