2012 marks The National Business School Conference’s 20th year, and like a fine wine, it just keeps gets better with age. The Manitoba event, which took place over the weekend of November 15, went off without a hitch thanks to co-chairs Patrick Marion and Lindy Masson, with the help of the organizing committee and the Commerce Students’ Association at the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business.
With 150 student council executives present, this event brought together some of Canada’s top young minds. Delegates were placed into intimate groups, where they experienced the support of seasoned mentors to discuss and share pressing issues and ideas. The conference was broken down into breakout sessions, with topics including, public relations, student body dynamics, conflict prevention and resolution, branding your council, and motivating your council.
Matt Friesen, Executive Vice President Member & Alumni Relations (West), was delighted to share the news of the conference’s success, “NBSC was well constructed and organized this year thanks to the excellent efforts put forth by the organizing committee. This conference enables our organization to continue to grow and communicate effectively with our members.”
While the information that was shared was an integral part of the sessions, the contacts and relationships that were built were what really made this event a hit. Delegates had the opportunity to go to know each other, and create lasting relationships during the Asper’s Business Banquet, Gala Dinner, and the night events.
Friesen is especially appreciative for all the support, and to those who made this event a great success, “Thank you goes out to the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business and Commerce Students’ Association for the warm welcome and great learning experience. The positive feedback received from the members truly demonstrates a job well done. We look forward to attending this conference for years to come!”
