It was a great opportunity in a lot of ways, but one key way was the opportunity to build further corporate support for The Student Commission of Canada.

In this LinkedIn Live, we discussed:

2. How it supported building a corporate partnership program?
3. What were some lessons learned when reaching out to companies?
4. What are some opportunities identified for the future?
