We picked up my son from Laurier yesterday. He has accepted the offer of admission to Laurier’s school of business and he enters first year this fall. Laurier offers a student leadership in business conference called the Link and my son took part in that experience last week.
He had an awesome time. From what I gather, the program was very busy and challenging. There was a major case study, social events and guest speakers. Dennis Kavelman, the Chief Financial Officer for RIM and a graduate of Laurier’s business school, was one of the speakers. Luc d’Abadie, author of The Power of Focus for College Students, was another speaker.
I read Luc’s book last night. There is a supporting website for the book here. Still under development as many of the treasures within the book reference content not yet available on the website. However, the book is a great resource for students. I have to make sure that my son gets through it before he starts in the fall. What a wonderful resource. I wish I had something like it before I started university.
