Dan Moorcroft smiling

 |  Category: Telferimpact

Passion, drive, success, but above all benevolence are all terms that accurately describe Dan Moorcroft (EMBA 1997), this year’s chair of the 25th Annual Telfer Golf Tournament.  Dan’s involvement in the event is just one of the many ways he has gotten involved with the Telfer School. He was elected to the EMBA alumni association, which led him to further involvement, including becoming a mentor to Telfer students. Dan has also held the position of CEO-in-residence and both member and chairman of the Dean’s advisory board.   The academic community is also a professional community at Telfer, which is why Dan has always put such great importance on his involvement at the School. Doing this shaped the way he conducts business and builds relationships, and also help him drive at “effectively defining value” in interactions. This year’s tournament proceeds will go to the Wellness Fund, an important cause to Dan, who believes that wellness is a critical element for success in all academic, personal, and professional pursuits. He is also a firm believer that developing one’s emotional intelligence can be vital in contributing to successful interactions and exchanges. Dan’s mentality is that “if you approach the world with a smile, it generally smiles back at you”. He often says “giving back should be known as getting back”, and the valuable insights and experience that he received from his involvement are a good example of this.   He wants to be remembered with a smile, as someone who is compassionate and considerate. He would like to be known as someone who shared a unique perspective on how to connect with other people. He makes sure to apply this to every interaction he has. It’s all about going beyond the simple individual actions and tackling different challenges. Helping the School develop a curriculum around the science of wellbeing in business will hopefully be his way to leave his mark and have a positive impact.   The Telfer School would like to thank Dan Moorcroft for his involvement in his community and in this year’s golf tournament.    Read more ›

The Toronto Telfer Alumni Network (TTAN) is a group of alumni whose goal is to connect Telfer alumni and current Telfer students in the Toronto area. The TTAN believes that the experiences and sense of community formed as Telfer students are potent tools that can propel one forward in their career, enriching professional relationships, networks, development opportunities, and career opportunities.  “We have noticed that there is a need to support and guide young Toronto alumni as many of them can lose touch after university, despite having a desire to stay connected”, explains Alex Dettman, President of the TTAN. Therefore, the TTAN works to connect Telfer alumni and students in Toronto to foster a continued sense of community, professional development, and support in navigating career opportunities. Run by a group of passionate alumni volunteers, TTAN also works to build an even stronger bond between the Telfer School of Management’s alumni associations and their alumni.  Read more ›
