Speed Networking “Ready, Set, Grow!” – 2018

Event Details


The University of Winnipeg Accounting Students’ Association presents its 2nd Annual Speed Networking: “Ready, Set, Grow!” Excel beyond the walls of the classroom by networking with industry professionals of all backgrounds. The event is a chance for students who are pursuing the CPA designation to connect with potential employers.

This event welcomes accounting students from any year of their degree from the University of Winnipeg, University of Manitoba, and Red River College. This is a great chance to meet and practice first impressions with accounting firms in Winnipeg.

How it works:

Students will be divided into pairs. Each pairing will be given 8 minutes to talk with an employer. After 8 minutes, you will be signaled to move onto the next employer until each student has spoken with each employer. There will be open networking at the end of the event to continue conversing.

Ticket Details:

Tickets: $10 – Includes food and non-alcoholic beverages. Cash bar on-site.
