Event Details

 

 
Ryan Beedie, BBA '91, recently made history with his father by gifting $22 million to SFU ** - the largest donation in the University's history. Ryan's affluence and ability to give back are the result of hard work, business acumen, and a keen sense of altruism.

A humble individual who usually prefers staying and working behind the scenes, Ryan will be stepping briefly into the spotlight to chat with fellow young alumni about his formative years at SFU, his career, and things he believes are at the very essence of business excellence. This is your opportunity to hear Ryan's thoughts on how he’s worked towards success.

As President of The Beedie Group, Ryan heads one of the largest and most successful industrial property development companies in Canada. Born and raised in Burnaby BC, he joined the family business in 1993 and later became the company President in 2001. He was named Ernst and Young's 2009 Pacific Entrepreneur of the Year, one of the most prestigious business awards for entrepreneurs, and landed the cover of BC Business Magazine.

Ryan will be addressing questions provided by the audience in advance on areas of personal and professional development that have shaped his path to excellence.

Those who register will be able to submit questions in advance via a link provided in the ticket purchase confirmation email.

** The historic donation established the Beedie School of Business at SFU. The University will use the gift to create an endowment supporting students, professorships and research chairs. The gift will help make the school a global thought leader in areas such as innovation and entrepreneurship, Asia Pacific business studies, risk management and sustainability.
