Participants will be rewarded with comfortable guest rooms and delicious meals that will also facilitate networking and sharing among participants. This ensures that everyone involved will leave with a new network of thought leaders and supporters with diverse experiences to share.
The program begins with an opportunity to meet the other participants over a casual dinner on November 6th followed by an evening of informal networking. The 7th and 8th will consist of a series of workshops, panels, and other interactive sessions as well as opportunities for the informal exchange of ideas over meals and refreshment breaks.
The Hockley Valley Resort, 45 minutes north of Toronto’s Pearson airport, provides a casual and very comfortable venue well away from the office for all participants. Everyone will have their own private accommodations and all rooms, meals, and refreshment breaks are included in the registration fee.
The primary audience for the Business Career Services Summit is Directors (or the most senior role) in business career services offices that work with undergraduate and/or graduate students. Managers are also welcome to register and attend along with their Directors. This will enable senior leaders from each school to learn collaboratively and quickly implement new ideas after The Summit.
Driving change starts with effective planning that engages your team, your stakeholders, departments, faculties, and also your broader communities. This full-day pre-conference workshop will provide training in strategic planning that has been developed specifically for leaders of career development on post-secondary campuses.
The program will be lead by Brainstorm Strategy Group’s Graham Donald who has experience facilitating strategic planning with career offices at McGill University, Simon Fraser University, Rutgers University, Wilfrid Laurier University, UBC, George Brown College, University of Regina, and numerous others.
The pre-conference program registration includes accommodations and 3 meals starting with dinner on November 5th.
