F&M Management Ltd. (F&M) has been providing corporate advisory services to our clients for ten successful years. This has included management and project management training. We are announcing the formation of a new company, Meridus Management Ltd. (Meridus), with a focus specifically on project management training.
We are very excited about this initiative as project management is one of the most fundamental strengths our clients offer. Their ability to manage projects has a tremendous impact on their reputation, the scope of services they can provide and bottom-line financial performance. While teaching the key fundamentals of project management we provide unique approaches and philosophies that are applied across an organization to allow the management of larger and complicated projects more effectively.
Our initial goal at Meridus is to bring our best-in-class live training to an engaging, online experience. The courses are well into the development phase and the expected launch of this innovative initiative is in early 2021. We are excited to present this initiative to the industry because we truly believe it will have a significant impact for our clients.
More announcements regarding Meridus and course content are coming this fall.

As the founders of the CE3C conference in 2017, F&M Management and its partners held successful conferences in 2018 and 2019 for the executives of environmental consulting and engineering sector in Canada. We soon realized that in order to maintain the high-quality deliverables and expansion of the conference we needed to align the conference with a reputable marketing and media company in Canada. In 2018 we were approached by Actual Media, our Media sponsor, indicating their keen interest in joining our efforts to deliver the future conferences.
After further assessment and negotiations with Actual Media, we agreed to form a new company called CE3C Management Ltd. to house the conference. F&M Management retained the majority ownership of CE3C Management Ltd. as the founder of the conference and will be involved in the conference program management and technical delivery related to industry benchmarking and ensuring the conference maintains a high degree of professional output. Actual Media will be responsible for marketing the conference, conference organization and sponsorship. We are very pleased with our new partnership with Actual Media as we continue serving the environmental consulting and engineering sector in Canada
