About CGTA

The Connecting GTA Networking Club was founded by Suresh Kumar, President & CEO of Kashden Consulting Group.

Suresh is a true leader with a vision for creating growth for entrepreneurs.   He has a keen ability to see the potential in individuals to drive innovation and growth for our communities.  His passion is to collaborate, inspire and lead to enhance member success.  His number one priority is the club members, and he strives for inclusion and respect.

CGTA started out as a small group of connections, and have now grown to a widely recognized organization that encourages economic development.  More importantly we take corporate social responsibility seriously, and we do our part to support many organizations and charities.  We couldn’t be more proud!

One of our strengths is mentoring each other.  We have built a solid network amongst our membership with a focus to support one another.  We have also designed a program for our youth to give them a foundation to enhance their knowledge.  It is a great way for them to learn while having a safety net.

We are continually expanding our goals to provide the right tools, and education for our members.  We have many subject matter experts who can provide direction and assistance at any time, and we truly appreciate each other’s contributions.
