RECHARGE 2017: The Roundtable Alumni Exchange

We’re back again! Due to the continued success of our alumni leadership “unconference”, we are excited to announce the fourth annual Roundtable Alumni Exchange on Friday, November 17th. The day will kick off at 8:00 a.m., following a 7:30 a.m. registration, and will wind down at 4:00 p.m., at which time you will be welcome to join us and enjoy some informal networking. Full day agenda coming soon!

Missed our event in years past? Here's what your colleagues have to say about Recharge:

Recharge was a refreshing way to step back from the day-to-day and revisit some important leadership principles. To meet with Alumni – from my own organization and others – was a great way to expand my perspective.— Logan Chambers, Senior Marketing Manager, PepsiCo

Recharge offers awesome networking, amazing leaders, inspiring dialogue and incredible value. It’s a must attend for me.— Siham Alibux, Director of Client Business Support, Tangerine

Only open to Roundtable program grads like you, Recharge 2017 will offer a day of inspiration, peer exchange and relevant, high-impact networking.

Featuring "TED" style talks, interactive panel discussions, Peer Roundtable exchanges and more this isn't your usual leadership event.

Some of our speakers this year include:

  • Silvio Stroesco, President BMO Investment Line
