“In the Fall of 2016, Ontario Colleges Association ran their once a year “Ontario Marketing Colleges Competition” at Conestoga College in Waterloo.
This competition is an intensive 2-day event that challenges the top marketing students (as selected by their faculty) in each college to go head to head with the other Ontario colleges in a highly competitive case study competition. These students are the “cream of the crop” and will soon enter the marketing and advertising world and could become our next Marketing Superstars!
The Direct Marketing Association of Canada (DMAC) partnered with Google to offer an exciting opportunity to the winners of this year’s competition including a private lunch & learn and tour at their downtown Toronto offices.
During this two-hour visit, students toured the Google workspace, enjoyed lunch in the Google cafe, and heard from key Google executives about what makes Google tick with leading Marketers. The event ended on a fun note with a visit to their super cool Virtual Reality space for some hands on demos and discussion.
If you are interested in participating in the 2017 event, be in touch with these talented next generation marketers with opportunities, or would like to join the other leading sponsors and become a contributor to it, please contact Karen McCarrol, Trimark Strategic Consulting, at 416 698 2243.
