Industry Night 2018
The 2018 Industry night was a fantastic opportunity for students to gain business experience while developing their problem solving and networking skills.
Over 80 participants attended this years Industry night at the Cutten Fields Golf course. The evening was packed with professional development through workshops, keynote speakers and networking opportunities!
This year students were able to participate in an interactive workshop ran by Microsoft. The workshop was structured like a mini case competition and had students engaged with future innovations using virtual reality. The workshop was a great chance for students from across business disciplines to work together and challenge their analytic skills.
The keynote speaker for the night was a University of Guelph alumni and current Executive Vice President and CFO of the Canadian Division of Manulife Financial Corporation, Janice Madon. It is always inspiring to hear from a fellow Gryphon who has been successful in their industry. Janice did just that with a wonderful presentation focused on taking chances and the importance of going for your goals.
In addition to the workshop and keynote, there was also notable presentations from Pepsico, Manulife, and Redbull. All of the guest speakers gave students valuable industry insight as well as professional development and career advice.
To conclude the evening, attendees had the chance to network with industry professionals while enjoying various drinks and hor d'eurves.
A special thank you to our all our guest speakers and Guelph business students for their attendance!
