If you’re a student (which we know you are) and you’re planning your career (which we hope you are), you’ll want to come to the Student Business Conference on Friday, March 18. Here’s why:

1. See how a teen turned $10,000 into a beer empire

Manjit Minhas (pictured at right) was barely over the legal drinking age when she set out to make beer her business. Fourteen years later, the Mountain Crest Brewing Company is the 10th largest brewery in one of the toughest markets in the world. See how the newest “dragon” on CBC’s Dragons’ Den focused on family, hard work and using less—packaging, chemicals, gas, electricity and water—to help her business achieve more than she ever imagined.

2. Ask great business leaders your toughest questions

See what local leaders in marketing, public relations, international business, procurement, hospitality, accounting, management and human resources have to say about trends in their fields and local career opportunities. They’re ready to answer your tough questions during one of four panel sessions.

3. Meet people and eat food

Mixing with some of the city’s great business leaders is the perfect way to get a sense of the opportunities out there, to start building your personal network and to showcase yourself to potential employers.
