APEX CONFERENCE

The theme for the 2012 APEX Conference is “Breaking Boundaries”. As an executive team, we wanted to restore the focus of the conference on the APEX mission and vision. The real business world is one which cannot be accurately presented in the confines of a classroom. “Breaking Boundaries” emphasizes the leap each delegate makes in attending APEX; a conscientious decision to expand one's scope and abilities in order to best reach one’s potential. Through a series of innovative workshops, keynote presentations, and numerous networking opportunities, we invite you to break the boundaries holding you back and take your first steps to becoming a successful business professional.

SESSION

March 9, 2012
11:45am - 12:45pm
Schulich School of Business, Room S124

Set Yourself up for Success: Become a Hot Commodity

How can you differentiate yourself from your peers? How can you stand out in the workplace or community? Becoming a hot commodity is about being the whole package. Learn more about the importance of being well-rounded, integrating social networking, and real life examples from a young woman who has set a standard for Generation Y's in Canada.
