As annual recognitions given by the School, Trudeau Medals and the Young Phoenix Award were presented to five outstanding graduates at the Gala. For those who missed it, highlights of the event can be seen in this next video.
While the School was celebrating its 50th anniversary year, it also had the privilege of hosting the 21st world conference of the International Leadership Association (ILA). Highlights of this 4-day event were a reception and a panel featuring prominent Telfer graduates such as Corey Ellis (BCom 2018), Anie Rouleau (BCom 1992), Georges Langill (MHA 1973), Tammy Labelle (EMBA 2003) and members of the community.
The conference agenda brought together graduates of various programs (BCom, MBA, MHA, Executive MBA) and cohorts (1973-2018), now at work in different sectors (consumer goods, health care, government/technology). Participants discussed the role and importance of management training in preparing all future leaders. They demonstrated not only how management training has helped them make a difference in communities they serve, but also and importantly, how it readies the next generation of business school graduates to lead effectively in these challenging times. The discussion covered our need to better understand how management-training goals have changed over the past 50 years and how they might evolve over the next 50.
