SYNERGY CONFERENCE

Established in 2011, the Synergy Conference is a fully student-initiated and student-run annual conference born through business students answering the increasingly pressing call for business oriented student clubs to share best practices to increase sustainability for the years to come. The event is supported by the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University.

SESSION

Date: March 10, 2012
Location: Simon Fraser University (Surrey Campus)
Time: 11am - 12pm

Surefire Ways to Spark Student Engagement

Running a student club takes a lot of work -- like, a lot of work. Everything from managing a team to meeting deadlines to time management to creating wicked programs. Do you ever catch yourself saying:... "I always have to do all the work and no one else works half as hard as I do." You're not alone. Whether you're a Club President, a Project Leader or a super keener... leader burnout and overload happens when you have a disengaged team. This session will explore the pulling priorities of students workload, the importance of engagement and surefire ways to motivate, retain and lead your teams.

ABOUT JILLIAN

Jillian Walker The simplest way to explain Jillian is that she's a super chatty, over-involved, HR lady. By day, she works with local leaders to become better
leaders, while working with employees to become their best selves. Cool eh? Officially she's the HR Manager at two tech companies - ImageX Media and UrtheCast; she's in charge of growing organizational culture. In 2010, Jillian was the recipient of the 'Rising Star Award' from the HR Institute of Alberta and the HR Association of Calgary. Outside of work, Jillian speaks to the student community, mentors young professionals and sits on the board for a few non-profits. Whether hosting a workshop, brainstorming with a business student club, or working one-on- one with a high achiever, Jillian's goal is to encourage others to think differently. At the end of the day, Jillian's passion lies in education at the global level. She has been involved with the UN's Nothing But Nets campaign and their commitment to end malaria in Africa since 2008. This year she is leading the Vancouver chapter of Junior Chamber International as Chapter President.
