Management student Barbara D. Robertson distinguished herself in many ways during her fall 2014 placement at Elections Canada. In addition to her outstanding academic record, Barbara far surpassed expectations during her placement, particularly through her strong sense of initiative. She showed her ingenuity by developing her own tool to let everyone know their roles and responsibilities when timelines overlap, making practical use of her management skills.
Barbara’s tool is still used as a template by her team and other senior department managers. She also takes part in extracurricular activities, holding various positions and helping to promote her faculty, while maintaining an outstanding grade point average.
Throughout her BCom, Barbara was very involved at Telfer and joined several clubs. In addition to her involvement in the Telfer Marketing Association, she was president for CASCO in 2014 and won first place in Business and Strategy at JDC the same year.
