Change is in the Air at Discovery 2014

Spring is (just barely!) in the air here in Toronto, and to RGC, that means it’s nearly Discovery conference time.

In less than six weeks, Discovery 2014 will be underway, and while you’ll see some of the familiar faces of your colleagues there, you’ll also see a few differences.

We spoke to Jon Kelly, CEO of RGC, to get his perspective on the changes this year.
