What makes you proud?

2017 marked a lot of firsts for us at DoTheDaniel – our first year as an incorporated business, our first ever Pride Parade where we were asked to be on a float, our first time sharing content in three languages, just to name a few! There is so much to be proud of, and that got me thinking. What is it about my life that makes me proud? I think it’s the ability to work with brands and experiences around the world that showcase diversity, power and persistance to change the world. You’ll remember that we had the pleasure of visiting W Montréal last year (click here to see more), and since then I have watched as they help to showcase truly Canadian ideals such as this. It’s why I wanted to share with you a new speaking series that they have launched! 

First things first. W Montréal is hands down one of my favourite hotels in Canada. They are chic, sophisticated, and truly trend setting. Not to mention the fact that they offer an experience like no other (around the world I might add) with their W Insider – Caroline Khangi being one of the best in the business! 

In addition to all of this, which is already impressive, W Hotels has launched a new speakers series in support of the LGBT community called QUEER ME OUT. Just in time for Fierté Montréal, the Montréal installment of the series will take place on August 17th at the hotel.

After each panel discussion concludes, guests are invited to mix, mingle and network – in true W style – at the hotel’s Living Room bar.  For those who cannot attend the talk, every QUEER ME OUT discussion is recorded and available via podcast on Whotels.com/TheAngle for motivation while on the move.  For every listen of the podcast, W Hotels will donate $1 to the True Colors Fund, which is working to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth by creating systemic change. Check out whotels.com/theangle for more details and to get involved.

I cannot wait to watch as this series continue to shape and change the world! For more information on one of our favourite hotels in Canada, make sure to head to www.wmontrealhotel.com and click here to make your reservation online in just a few clicks. I cannot wait to get back to Montreal soon and revisit what it means to have a #WMontreal experience. To join in on the social media conversation, follow @WMontreal on Twitter & Instagram, and ‘Like’ their Facebook Page. Share your amazing experience at this new speakers series by using and following the #LoveTravels and #WMontreal hashtags. I can’t wait to see your photos and posts!
