BVG L!NK Alumni Networking Speaker Series: Finance Professionals
On April 18, the Bayview Glen Alumni Association hosted our inaugural BVG L!NK Alumni Networking Speaker Series focussed on the finance industry. Our panel talked us through their thoughts on the current state of the industry and how it is evolving, as well as providing practical advice on career development. Of particular interest was the discussion on the differences between the buy and sell side of the markets, and the unique opportunities that exist for finance professionals in Canada at the large Canadian pension funds. Finally, there was a brief networking session after the panel where the participants had an opportunity to connect with each other and the panelists.
Special thanks to our panelists Benita Warmbold (past parent), Sandra Taube Godard (past parent), and Zoheb Dosani ’08 for their time, as well as to our moderator Christian Medeiros ’12. We also thank Scotiabank and Barbara Mason (BVG Board of Directors) for providing the space for our event at the Scotiabank Digital Factory.
