This unique event, completely organized by Continuing Education students enrolled in CPL2 510 Communication and Networking Skills class, unites students from various programs, professional disciplines, and career expertise in a casual business environment to exercise effective networking skills. Representatives from MACES, along with Jason Della Rocca, the Co-Founder of Execution Labs, will be providing remarks at the event about the importance of networking.

The objective is to provide students with a direct, hands-on approach to build and expand their network/connections to further benefit their careers goals.

MACES is the primary sponsor of the event. MACES is the student association that represents Continuing Studies students at McGill University. Throughout the year, MACES offers a number of networking events for all students in McGill’s School of Continuing Education, and more information can be found at
