As I mentioned in my previous posts, I am the Events Coordinator for the Queen’s Entrepreneurs’ Competition 2010. The competition final gala weekend starts this Thursday, and it’s crunch time for the Exec! Delegate swag bags are being packed, publications are being finalized, signage to be picked up, itineraries to be sorted, nametags to be printed…and the list goes on. The QEC Exec team has been camping out in the NSC (Net Impact Support Centre) and the ComSoc offices in the basement of Goodes Hall, doing last minute prep work. This afternoon I did a HUGE supply pick up and we wandered the aisles of the grocery store with two shopping carts piled high with food, drinks, paper plates, cutlery, snacks, and decor items. More shopping trips are scheduled in the next few days for QEC. This competition weekend is the culmination of one year’s worth of planning, and I’m looking forward to welcoming the competitors who are coming from around the world to compete at the Queen’s School of Business. The final gala weekend promises good food, exciting keynote speakers, and tons of networking opportunities…oh yeah, and the chance to win $25 000 in cash.

As a sidenote, I really encourage you to join the QSB online chat session taking place next Tuesday, January 26th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. There will be a whole QSB team working together to help answer your questions and give you instant responses on admissions, exchange, academics, student life, etc.
Until next time!
