DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE FUTURE. Shape it. Those words capture where many of us stand right now: a little less sure of things than we used to be, especially about the challenges to come.  The Telfer Vision for a Better Canada propels just that: we want to build a Canada that is greener, healthier, happier and wealthier for generations to come! 

Come join the conversation with some of our most talented alumni, who will explore these four topics and start shaping the future, today! Register now and let us know which session you would like to attend!

Sustainability is a concept that can be applied to every industry, workplace, home, and person. The idea of sustainability took a major leap in 2020; and is expected to be increasingly more important in the coming years. This session will provide a brief overview of the top sustainability trends to look out for in 2021 and beyond, and the impacts it will have on Leadership and Management moving forward.

Building great wealth as an employee is almost impossible. Though, what if being a risk-taking entrepreneur isn’t for you. No ideas, and no capital to get started. But what if there was a hybrid model?
