Thanks for looking into the upcoming Speaker Series and Networking event, WesternAscends2016, put on by The Ascension Colloquium. Ascension Co is a new Canadian start-up, which plans and executes events that are catered towards undergraduate business students. These speaker series events feature talks from 3-4 prominent Canadian business leaders from a diverse array of industries, followed by a networking session with representatives from local firms and companies. One of the pillars of Ascension Co is charity and the act of giving back to the community, and so 50% of the tickets sales from WesternAscends2016 will be donated to The Children’s Health Foundation of the London Health Sciences Centre!
Ascension Co’s inaugural event in May 2016 was a great success. Held downtown Toronto at the Fairmont Royal York, the event featured the Founder of Hero Burger, the Co-Founder of Mill St. Brewery, a Business Unit Leader from KPMG and a Team Lead from TD Bank as speakers. These leading professionals shared their insight and business acumen with 150 business students who were present from different universities across the GTA. A portion of the proceeds was donated to the Environmental Defence Canada.
Following an overwhelming response of attendee emails asking for future campus-specific events, Ascension Co is hard at work planning WesternAscends2016, which will be held at Western University catering to their undergraduate and Ivey business students.
We have announced the first speaker of WesternAscends2016:
