DUFF SHAW

  • Position when inducted: Two years retired from career that included being a leading instructor at Ryerson University
  • Current position: Gone fishing! 
Duff is the only remaining founding charter member (of the original 19) of MPI Toronto Chapter—MPI’s first international chapter. He began his planning career in Crown Life’s marketing department, after being asked to take over the incentive program. He has taught a variety of events courses at Ryerson University and offered his students a “two-year warranty,” whereby they could continue to contact him for help after they graduated. He served as Site Canada’s president twice, on the MPI board several times and developed Hong Kong Polytechnic’s meetings-management course. Duff retired in 2007.
