On September 13, 2017, Dr. Sylvain Charlebois introduced Dalhousie Faculty of Management’s strategic plan, Expanding the Experience. A new vision, Inspiring Transformational Solutions for Society, gives a sense of purpose to do better for communities, both local and global. CFAME Connection has benefited from professors who have demonstrated their commitment to this vision of building on current strengths and partnerships, and focusing on experiential learning and internationalization. Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management is confronting the major management challenges of our generation and welcomes the opportunity to dialogue with their community of students, alumni and stakeholders.
Special thanks to Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, Dr. Martine Durier-Copp, Dr. Cam McLarney, Dr. Binod Sundararajan, Dr. Joyline Makani and Dr. Rick Nason.
CFAME Connection acknowledges the valuable assistance of a remarkable CFAME Team:
Michelle Hunter, Morven Fitzgerald, Derek Tay, Moragh MacAulay, and Marianne Hagen
There are many more discussions waiting for us in the upcoming year. 2018 has special significance as we commemorate Dalhousie University’s 200th Anniversary.
We enjoy sharing stories of graduates. We also want to have repeat contributors to discuss current thoughts regarding leadership, communication, governance and information management. Please let us know if you are interested in joining CFAME Connection: Year 2, The Continuing Journey.
With warm appreciation,
Michelle & Rebecca
