(Marketing Coordinator) 1999 to 2000
For more than 30 years, Harbourfront Centre in Toronto has been on the cutting edge of all that is current and creative, bringing together the best in both Canadian culture and the rich mosaic of cultures from within Canada and around the world all within a collection of distinctive venues in the heart of Toronto's downtown waterfront.
The Centre hired Ms. Woods to lead marketing efforts for its ethnic community festivals which included managing the production and distribution of the marketing collateral and advertising budget ($100K).
Woods’ main goal was to increase overall attendance to all the community festivals with particular emphasis on the Black community (predominantly Caribbean/African) population. She researched the events in that community and attended several key events, where she spoke briefly and also distributed marketing collateral. She also initiated advertising in several new publications in that community.
