Growing Biotech Entrepreneurship hosts Leadership and Pitching workshop

Growing Biotech Entrepreneurship hosts Leadership and Pitching workshop 

On Friday February 26th, the Masters of Medical Biotechnology Program and EPICentre collaboratively hosted the Growing BE (Biotechnology Entrepreneurship) workshop at the Katzmann Lounge in Vanier Hall. The workshop saw over 70 students and community members who came out to learn leadership skills and how to pitch themselves in order to achieve their career goals. 

The Lead to Succeed workshop was led by Dr. Anne Snowdon, a professor at the Odette School of Business and chair of the International Centre for Health Innovation, who spoke about technological changes in society today and emphasized the importance of leadership, innovation and adaptation in the ever-changing workplace. Dr. Snowdon touched on developments in the health care system and provided the audience with a framework to get them thinking about what value they could bring to an organization, whether it be an existing company or their own.
