A gathering of Calgary’s business leaders attended the inaugural Business Champions Breakfast at the Roderick Mah Centre for Continuous Learning on Wednesday, January 21.
Keynote speaker Richard Lannon, an instructor and curriculum expert in the Business Analysis program, spoke on The Journey of the Business Champion: Peaks, Valleys and Detours. He shared stories of clients he has worked with over the course of his 27-year career. Richard’s dynamic and engaging style clearly connected with his audience of Calgary business champions.
The Ross Glen Hall in the LEED Gold certified conference facility was set up to showcase its flexibility in hosting a variety of events and meetings through MRU’s Events and Conference Services. The guest speaker highlighted the expertise that can be shared with Corporate Training clients who come to MRU for customized programs and classes for their employees.
Cindy Chambers, Manager of Corporate Training, was pleased with the success of this inaugural event, noting that “there were a number of people that indicated that they want to talk to us about space rentals and/or future corporate training opportunities. We had people that weren’t able to attend today but want to come for a site tour. We had people that were at the event this morning saying that they want to bring some of their colleagues to the next one.”
