Congratulations to MBA alumnus and Professor Guy Laflamme, who was recognised for his contributions to the community by the United Way.
The United Way’s news release about the National Capital Region’s (NCR) Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) explains it this way:
“One individual was recognized with a surprise Community Builder Award for his commitment and contribution to the community. Guy Laflamme, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, National Capital Commission (NCC), pioneered a change in direction for the NCC campaign. Under his guidance, the department focused on putting a face to its campaign, showing those who have received help and the difference it has made in their lives. Guy inspired many people to get involved in important causes, share their experiences with others, and be leaders at work and elsewhere. Guy also demonstrates this leadership with his students at the University of Ottawa’s Telfer School of Management and their “Making Niger our Business” campaign. With his help, students raised money, organized events and increased awareness for West Africa’s severe food crisis. Since 2005, more than $40,000 in cash, $500,000 in medical equipment and 10,000 kg of textbooks for schools have been raised.”
