EVENT SYNOPSIS: Family business makes up more than 60% of Canada’s GDP, but is rarely at the top of the list when we think about where to begin our careers.  In some cases, however, the opportunities for young professionals to make an impact out of the gates are magnified in a family business through direct access to key decision makers.  Our panelists will discuss and dispel some of the myths of family businesses as difficult workplaces, and provide advice on how to kick-start your career in a family firm.

This event will be a great networking opportunity for students and family businesses.
