Full slate of ComSoc conferences in November

Posted on November 03, 2011

November is the busiest month for Commerce student organizers of conferences and competitions that host business students from across Canada and around the world. These provide invaluable leadership experience for undergraduate students responsible for all aspects of these major events, including marketing, financial management, sponsor solicitation, communications and logistics.

Each of the six conferences and competitions is described briefly below:

• Q3C—Queen’s Commerce Corporate Challenge runs Nov. 2 to 4, and is billed as Canada’s largest and most extensive consulting case competition. Q3C promises twists that push competitors to stretch their creativity through ‘outside-the-box’ thinking and offers a 3:1 delegate to sponsor ratio for maximum networking opportunities.

• QBET–Queen’s Conference on the Business Environment Today celebrates its 35th anniversary with this year’s event that runs Nov. 3 to 6. The first such student-run business conference in Canada is focused this year on the theme “The Power of Connectivity.”

• QLEAD—Queen’s Leadership, Excellence and Development Conference takes place Nov 10 to 13 when ComSoc organizers welcome high school students from across Canada who are interested in developing their leadership potential under this year’s theme “Own Your Path”.

• QWIL—Queen’s Women in Leadership Conference runs Nov. 10 to 12 with the theme, “A Limitless Generation.” Both female and male delegates representing multiple disciplines will descend on Kingston for two intensive days of workshops, panel discussions and speaker presentations.

• DECA Queen’s Invitational Conference—This annual conference, run by the Queen’s chapter of an international association of marketing students, takes over Goodes Hall from Nov. 18 to 20. Industry speakers, business simulations and case competitions test delegates’ case analysis, presentation and problem-solving skills.

• QFAC—Queen’s Finance Association Conference takes place Nov. 17 to 20 at Toronto’s Royal York Hotel. Canada’s first student-run conference focused on finance and capital markets offers a full complement of activities from speaker presentations to ‘A-Day-on-Bay’ that gives delegates exposure to the workings of major finance companies on Bay Street.
