BUSINESS BEYOND TOMORROW CONFERENCE
Three of Montreal’s business schools join forces to organize a Sustainability Weekend
On Friday, March 11th and Saturday March 12th, three of Montreal’s business schools, John Molson School of Business (Concordia University), Desautels Faculty of Management (McGill University) and HEC Montreal (Université de Montreal) will play host to a sustainability conference. Concordia University’s (John Molson School of Business) downtown campus will host “Business Beyond Tomorrow”, on March 11th, a conference for business leaders, professors, and students to come together and share ideas on how the corporate world can develop and implement initiatives for greener business and general practices. The next day, March 12th, HEC Montreal will host, their annual MBA case competition. The competitive event is expected to bring together 12 business schools from US & Canada.
With the rise of marketing buzz-words like ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘footprint reduction’, this conference goes beyond the jargon by focusing on the practices companies and individuals should adopt to create a lasting and successful difference socially, ecologically and economically.
The conference includes several keynote speakers and panellists from
internationally recognized companies such as:
§ Claude Ouimet - Senior VP & GM, InterfaceFLOR
§ John Fullerton - President, Capital Institute
§ Vandana Shiva - Sydney Peace Prize Winner 2010
§ Bob Willard - Author, The Business Case of Sustainability
In addition, experts in Social Enterprise, Renewable Energy,
Green Marketing, Sustainable Consulting, Green Buildings,
Food & Sustainability, Sustainable Finance and Innovation and
Entrepreneurship, will participate in interactive panel discussions.
The day will also be packed with excellent networking opportunities
and delicious organic food!
