Symposium to hear from business leaders

Student organizers of the Georgie-Odette Leadership Symposium, November 17 at the Odette School of Business, have developed a day-long program boasting keynote speakers from regional and international enterprises:

  • Sergio Marchionne, chief executive officer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles;
  • Michael Rossi, president, Adidas Group Canada;
  • Justine Fedak, senior vice-president brand, advertising and sponsorship, BMO Financial Group;
  • Ferio Pugliese, executive vice-president customer care and corporate affairs, Hydro One Networks;
  • Alex Maclean, founder, East Coast Lifestyle;
  • Marnie McBean, three-time Olympic champion rower, author;
  • Thomas O’Brien, president and founder, Coopers Hawk Vineyards.

Attendees will be able to engage with these leaders and hear how they manage to stay ahead in the global marketplace.

This year’s symposium will also integrate a custom app for Apple and Android devices. The myGOLS app will enable participants to stay on top of event announcements, interact with other professionals through social media, and pose questions to presenters.
