Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - September 29, 2020) - The Electronic
Recycling Association (www.era.ca) has announced the organization's second
live-action event series; a cross-country virtual masterclass featuring
intimate, educational conversations between Canada's leading digital
innovators and showcasing the organization's ongoing philanthropic initiatives
in the academic community.

The opening chapter of Academic will be held online on Thursday, November 19
at 3:00 PM MDT and will explore the art of contemporary cloud computing; with
a spotlight on Montreal's globally recognized cloud ecosystem.

The masterclass will be hosted by Jim Love, Chief Information Officer at IT
World Canada, and feature five of Montreal's most prominent cloud computing
experts; including:

  * Sofiene Kemoun, General Director of Strategic Initiatives at Videotron

  * Daina Proctor, Associate Partner of Security Intelligence Operations and
    Consulting at IBM

  * Ian Rae, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at CloudOps

  * Joey Sabelli, Canadian National Manager of SAP on AWS at Amazon Web
    Services

  * Najma Sultana, Senior Director of Digital Transformation Program Delivery
    and Advisory Services, Cybersecurity at Air Canada

"Over the past decade, cloud services have evolved from being perceived as a
nebulous, risky solution suited for non-critical services to a position of
strategic prevalence in the vast majority of enterprises; impacting the vast
majority of business functions. Cloud services have reliably addressed the
false promises of inflated expectations, myopic forays into disjointed and
non-critical solutions, and legitimate concerns about security, privacy, and
sovereignty," commented Robert Brennan Hart, ERA Advisory Board Member and
Executive Producer of ERA Live Events.

"However, with many of cloud computing's great promises already fulfilled, how
can one of mankind's greatest inventions continue to empower and propel global
innovation in the interest of solving humanity's most critical issues?"

The 75-minute digital masterclass will conclude with a 15-minute live laptop
donation drive where guests will be encouraged to donate their old laptops to
emerging young innovators who desperately need access to a computer so thy can
learn from home during the global pandemic.

organization's mission to solve the critical issue of e-waste while ensuring
