You may recall Christina Fast’s nomination for Avenue Magazine’s 2017 Top 40 Under 40 last fall. Based on her work with SPECT and dedication to the sterile processing field, this time last year we were celebrating Christina’s ground-breaking work as our fearless founder, educator, and consultant.

Well, with a new year comes new achievements and SPECT has once again been nominated for another distinguishing award in our Canadian community. The WISE 2018 50 Over 50 Award highlights seniors in business - specifically senior entrepreneurs – and acknowledges the unique struggles seniors face in today’s business market.

Originally, Dan Fast was nominated for this award, but after hearing SPECT’s story, we are pleased to announce that our whole team will be receiving this very celebrated award. Not only are we honoured to be recognized for the work of our entire team, but we are immensely grateful for the assistance this award will provide moving forward. We see the WISE 50 Over 50 Award being monumental in promoting our work to a completely new demographic, but in addition, we are excited to benefit from the business consulting that WISE grants to all recipients.

As a non-governmental organization focused on truly making a difference, it can sometimes be difficult to navigate the business landscape required to make our operations successful. Because of this we are immensely grateful for the opportunity to develop our business skills and receive guidance moving forward as an organization.
