Student Business Conference 2017
Thu, Mar 2 2017
Join us for the School of Business' annual premier event. Each year students learn about the local and broader business world, network with local professionals and benefit from the wisdom of a keynote speaker, famous for success in the business world.
Joining us as keynote speaker this year is self-made millionaire, active investor, speaker and philanthropist, Michael Hyatt.
Michael Hyatt made his millions by building two highly successful tech firms valued in the hundreds of millions. Today, Michael ranks as one of Canada’s top entrepreneurs, is a celebrated “Dragon” on CBC’s online sensation Next Gen Den, and is a weekly business commentator on The Exchange, On the Money, and The Business Panel. He is also an active investor and philanthropist. Speaking on leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, the future of tech, and managing change, Hyatt believes that no matter what the topic, we need to embrace change, because, as he says, “change is good".
Hyatt is currently the Executive Chairman of BlueCat, one of the largest private software companies in the country, focused on the internet of things. Prior to his current role, he led the company since its inception as CEO, where his leadership philosophy was to focus on strategy and empower his employees to execute.
SBC is your opportunity to learn outside the classroom and connect with local business leaders.
