Hanson Canada organized its first ever Alumni Networking event on 12th October 2018. The purpose of the event was to provide an opportunity for Hanson’s Alumni to interact with one and another, and be motivated to continue on their educational and professional pursuits.
The MCs for the evening Parwinder Kaur and Harold Zuleta started off the event by welcoming all the guests and alumni to the event. Mr. Shouyi Ma – CEO of Hanson Canada was invited to the stage and he shared his wisdom with all the alumni. He stressed on the importance of making connections in the professional world and launched Hanson`s latest initiative – “Peer Mentor program”, wherein alumni can mentor and guide newer students and help them to get better adjusted to the new environment.
The evening was further graced by the presence of Ms. Erin Bury – who is not only an accomplished entrepreneur but also a highly sought-after speaker. She was named one of Marketing Magazine`s top 30 under 30. She has also been featured in the New York Times, CNN and Forbes magazine. She spoke on the traits that all successful entrepreneurs displayed and that set them apart from others. She emphasized that even if one is not looking to become an entrepreneur, thinking outside the box can reap dividends. Ms. Erin also stressed on the importance of digital marketing in today`s society and how it is shaping the future.
After Ms. Erin Bury concluded her talk, Hanson alumni and guests mingled with each other and made some everlasting connections. Through this event we hope that our alumni will continue to feel supported by Hanson and we look forward to having these alumni and some more back for the next year`s Networking event .
