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.
