Just in time for the start of the new semester Hanson Canada held its semi-annual town hall meeting at its North York campus. This meeting took on a new, more engaging and informative format. A number of announcements were made for the coming months.
President and CEO Shouyi Ma kicked off the meeting by taking the audience through the company’s 17-year journey. Mr. Ma talked about the future of the company; its leading place in the international education industry, and how we intend to remain there and bolster business through development of new markets and the adoption of cutting-edge technology.
With that came a very exciting announcement from North York Campus Director Manny Bassi, Hanson North York Campus Director: Hanson Canada is getting its very own mobile app! We employed a former Hanson graduate was employed to work on the current development of a mobile application for students, faculty, and staff. It is expected a beta version of the application will be released in Winter 2019.
Furthermore, following months of rebranding work in the Marketing department, Hardeep Kaur, Interim Vice-President of Marketing and Admissions debuted two brand new websites for our high school, Hanson International Academy, and our language school, HSL School of Languages. These tools will provide better visibility for the schools and allow our marketing staff to provide competitive, high quality information to agents and students.
Following the Management Presentation, an extended Q&A session was held using an online application called sli.do app. The response was overwhelmingly positive – great input were submitted through the sli.do app, and the management team was able to efficiently and accurately answer majority of the employee inquiries.
Last, but certainly not least, we took a moment to celebrate a momentous occasion for one of our own: Clair Malek’s 10-year work anniversary at Hanson Canada. She has been diligently working in our student services department for a decade and is known around campus for her cheerful demeanour and helpfulness. Clair, congratulations on your anniversary!
