Robert Marsh

Robert Marsh made the most of his four years in the Commerce program. As class president, Q'BET co-chair and ICBC's winning debater, he had a lot of practice balancing many activities, all of which required leadership, teamwork, and communication skills.

In 2009, while working at a new non-profit, he decided to try his hand at politics and entered CBC's Next Great Prime Minister Competition. Participants were required to undertake a number of challenges, including town hall events, simulated national emergencies, and ultimately, a final debate in front of four former prime ministers. Robert progressed through each stage and ultimately placed 2nd in the competition.
