"A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so." ― Mahatma Gandhi

CAD MicroSolutions is a company that is fiercely dedicated to providing the ultimate customer experience. In addition to the vast product portfolio we provide, we also organize and host events annually for our Subscription customers. These events are hosted for our customers to learn, network, and get inspired by their design and engineering community. The day is always a good mix of heavy duty technical information, networking, professional development, and fun! From taking our customers to the ball game to see our home team, the Toronto Blue Jays, to the fast-paced action at the Woodbine Race Track, CAD MicroSolutions’ events are the must have ticket every year! This year our SOLIDWORKS 2017 launch events were spectacular. We hosted 11 Regional Events throughout Ontario in October as well as a Grand Launch Event. solidworks-launch-events Our SOLIDWORKS 2017 Grand Launch Event was held on October 18th at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Our Subscription customers joined us for a day that was filled with technical presentations, breakout technical sessions, guest speakers, and lots of opportunities to connect with their SOLIDWORKS community and meet the CAD MicroSolutions team. The event concluded with a cocktail reception, and some very lucky attendees got tickets to take a flight on one of the Canadian Warplane Museum’s vintage aircraft! See our SOLIDWORKS 2017 Grand Launch Highlights Here Every year these events are presented with a focussed theme. The theme for this year's SOLIDWORKS Grand Launch event was ‘Women in Engineering’. Our guest speakers included: Mary A Wells, PhD., P Eng Ontario Network of Woman in Engineering (ONWiE) – Professor Wells specializes in mechanical and mechatronics engineering and currently teaches manufacturing processes at the University of Waterloo. Her presentation stressed the importance of encouraging young girls to not shy away from math and science but to push through and become the new frontier of engineering. Larisa Yurkiw - A very inspiring woman and one of the top 3 downhill ski racers in the world. She is an accomplished entrepreneur -- and the first global athlete to combine these two skills in what has become known around the world as "Team Larisa." Think Like a Girl: Engineering Kits – A group of young ladies from South Jersey created this start-up focussed on getting girls into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) industries. Their team aims to spread awareness of the gender gap in engineering and the need for a variety of perspectives to find the best possible solutions. 14682071_10211436469497118_3644880367137068254_oI was also very privileged to present to our customers, our commitment to Strengthening the Partnership with my WIL team (Women In Leadership).
