Page 14 of 35 13 Name: Elliot Pobjoy Company: War Child Canada Title: Chief strategy officer and general counsel Career highlight: Any time I've been overseas on the front lines of our work at War Child is a highlight. Seeing the power and intelligence and capacity of our local frontline teams on the ground always brings it back home and makes my work worth it. Career lowlight: Like the rest of the charitable sector, we saw a temporary drop-off in support at the start of the pandemic, so we had real fears for the future. We had to cancel our galas and events, and suddenly our prospects for funding were looking scarce. However, we got rid of our office, sold our office supplies and started to tell our COVID-19 story to supporters, and our teams overseas persevered. What began as a lowlight turned into a highlight.
