INDUSTRY NIGHT 2018
The University of Guelph Marketing Society was proud to present Industry Night on November 7th, 2018 at Cutten Fields. This event was a fantastic opportunity for business students to develop their skills through an interactive workshop and keynote presentation.
To start the evening off, students got to participate in an interactive workshop ran by Microsoft. The workshop centered around meeting the needs of the future and leveraging technology to do so. It was amazing to see how Guelph students from across disciplines were able to connect and brainstorm with industry professionals.
Following the workshop was our keynote speaker, Stacey Grant-Thompson, the CMO of Manulife Financial. Stacey discussed how she has used her strategy, marketing and general management skills to lead global companies in financial services, telecommunications and retail. The presentation was very insightful and stressed the importance of strategic marketing in today's business environment.
To conclude the event, students were able to network with business leaders and professionals in various industries. In addition to the networking, complimentary drinks and Hor d’eurves were served
The event was free and open to all business majors.
A special thank you to all of our sponsors and Guelph students who attended. It was your contributions that made the event such a success!
