Leadership Dinner

This year’s Leadership Dinner shaped the conversation around how better business makes for a better world.

For the 2019 event, Dean Ian Harper hosted as well as launched our new Impact Report – highlighting our achievements and community impact from the previous year.

"We have great plans to strengthen and deepen the impact of the School in our city, in this country and beyond," Dean Harper said.

That’s why we work hard to discover and teach what it takes to make better businesses – not for their own sake, but because of the impact they can have on the lives of employees, customers and the broader community.

Discussion also included the eight new business education programs launched in 2018 and initiatives, such as establishing the first endowed Chair in Indigenous Business Leadership, the For Purpose Executive Leadership Program, the Diversity Scholarship Fund and future opportunities for the School.

Professor Glenn Hoetker spoke on the night as well and inspired many with his vision of innovative solutions to social problems and upcoming developments at the School.
