TRSM conference picks legacy theme

Preparations for the annual Ted Rogers Management Conference kicked off yesterday with a party to announce its theme: legacy.

The conference is a three-day, student-run business event. It began as a memorial for Ted Rogers but has evolved to promote the exploration of its namesake’s business style and work ethic. Now in its fifth year, the conference is a place for students to compete in case competitions and learn from successful business people by hearing their stories.

Yesterday’s block-party style celebration took place right outside Ted Rogers School of Management. As attendees enjoyed free food, music and t-shirts, the event executives took to social media to announce “legacy” as the theme of the 2014 conference, which will be held from March 6 to 8 at Toronto’s Marriott Hotel.

Chair of TRMC 2014, Noah Geist, said the new theme should serve as food for thought for the delegates and business executives in attendance.

“What are the decisions that you make every day that you won’t see the outcome of? [What are you] just doing to make positive social change and leave a legacy?” he said.
Previous conference themes include “What’s Your I.D. (Inner Drive)” and “The Best Is Yet to Come.”
Funding for the conference and associated costs come from a combination of school, sponsors and delegate fees.
