Montreal Bosses come together in solidarity to celebrate the Bossing Up Awards on zoom

As we get used to our new normal of living in quarantine and social distancing, there are leaders who refuse to let their communities suffer. Albeit, online communities have risen up with incredible power, and their members coming together to uplift each other in spectacular ways.

One community that comes to mind is the Bossing Up Community, founded by Samantha Kris. Kris who has been motivating her online community for years before COVID-19 hit the streets of Montreal, brought an ingenious award show to her community by ways of zoom.

Attendees were voters in the weeks prior to the online award show, nominating, then voting for their peers in different categories ranging from ‘Outstanding Content” to the ultimate award of “Boss of the Year’. Greeted by a virtual online carpet, the event was as remarkable as it can get, through zoom.

While everyone cheered for one another, the finalists in each category took home a virtual award, created and sponsored by Protocole – Trophées d’exception, the same award maker as the Grand Prix of Canada awards.
