If you walk around Henry Angus or any building on campus for that matter, you’ll most likely be bombarded with a huge load of promotional materials. Something’s always happening. Someone’s always talking. Something’s always selling. The way I see it, most students only really want three things: a picture, a short blurb, and whether not not there will be food. So that’s what I’ll give ya! Here are two events taking place in the next little while that are especially worth mentioning.
World Cities Night [Facebook link]
Description in ten words or less: networking dinner with professionals who work internationally / with global clients
Food: Dinner provided, will be sitting with business people and other students in small group settings
My two cents: “Disappointment” is a NOT a word that’s in the vocabulary of International Business Club, the organization that’s putting on this event. By [blog] press deadline, there have been already 70 registered attendees, not even including the corporate people! I for one have always wondered what “international business” was exactly (all I knew was that the acronym IB used to stand for International Baccalaureate *shudder*), so this is the perfect opportunity to find out. It’s not an intense recruitment session, yet it’s a good eye-opener for first year Sauderites and students in other faculty interested in working/travelling to other parts of the world.
Other info: Oct 29 6-9pm, Koerner Ballroom, $10, dress code is business casual
International Business Conference [Facebook link]
Description in ten words or less: full day conference about global resources, includes speakers & networking session
Food: Breakfast included, three course lunch included, wine and cheese reception for the first 150 ticket buyers
My two cents: In the business world, we usually judge a book by its cover because more often than not, the packaging is a direct reflection of the quality underneath. Not only did IBC do an amazing job with promotional work (psst, fantastic video this way), it also has a well-organized and fully-packed conference day as well as several post/pre-events for the delegates. What better time to get a fresh perspective on resources in our integrated economy?
Other info: Nov 14 8:30am – 5pm (or later for reception), Sheraton Vancouver, $35+, dress code is business casual
You can find me dashing halfway into both events!! If I’m ushering at either of them, do show up because this is probably the only time you’ll find ME serving food to YOU.
