In this episode, Alex and Gerald share experiences with volunteering and events within YACC, and why it’s been so important for both of them to give back! Gerald also shares the multi-faceted approach to fundraising and volunteer work, whether it’s within the cancer community or more broadly, and how it’s defined who he is.
Gerald Mak is currently a strategy manager within the Ontario Government (Crown Agency). Prior to joining the public sector, Gerald worked in various financial and professional institutions with roles in risk, communications, and technology.
