Brookline supports National Event that brings together students and CEOs from across Canada

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Last week, Brookline supported Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship (ACE), a national charitable organization that is teaching and igniting young Canadians to create brighter futures for themselves and their communities. Brookline was involved with the media relations efforts for their National Exposition, which took place at the TELUS Convention Centre between May 10 – 12.

The event kicked off with a panel discussion with some legendary Calgary businessmen, including Dick Haskayne, David Bissett and John Forzani, and moderated by BNN’s Brett Harris.

Competition took place over two days where over 500 students involved, and 300 judges and over 50 top Presidents and CEOs helped to determine the National Champions.  The competition presentations told some inspiring stories about the outreach projects and entrepreneurial business ventures taking place across our country on over 50 university and college campuses. Brookline was proud to be a supporter of ACE, and also greeted students at their Career Opportunity Fair. The event was also well attended by media, providing ample television, online, print and radio coverage for ACE leading up to, and throughout the event, both locally and nationally.

The event wrapped up with a memorable closing party on Wednesday evening.

Kudos ACE on a great event, and we look forward to seeing “y’all” in Calgary sometime again soon! Yahoo!
