Event Details

Join business leaders from our Dalhousie Alumni Toronto community as they share experience and advice from their careers. A moderated panel discussion with Q&A, followed by revolving round-table discussions. Sample panelist questions:

  • What has prepared you the most for your leadership position today?
  • What role has failure played in your life?
  • In hindsight, what do you wish you had known before pursuing a leadership role?
  • What is one lesson and one piece of advice you have learned from your experience that you would like to share with the audience?

For those wishing, we’ll end the night with a spring social and networking at Speakeasy 21, where you will have a chance to catch up with old friends and make new connections.
