TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2019 /CNW/ - Announced today, The Advertising Club of Toronto (AdClub) is pleased to announce Ken Hunt, Executive Vice-President, St. Joseph Communications as keynote speaker for its annual Magazine Day, Friday, Dec. 6 beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Carlu, Toronto.

"We are thrilled to welcome Ken Hunt as keynote speaker and look forward to his perspective and insight," said Tim Hughes, Chair of the Magazine Day organizing committee. "In this ever-changing landscape, Ken is a true leader who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."
