Alexis Ohanian to Desautels Gathering: “Don’t Get Hung Up on Great Ideas – Get Started on Them”

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:39

On March 11, Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder Reddit, paid a visit to the Desautels Faculty of Management during one of the last stops of his North American tour to promote his book, “Without Their Permission.” The book describes how he started the front page of the internet from scratch with his partner Steve Huffman. “Everyone has great ideas. No one wakes you up in the middle of the night to say ‘I have a terrible idea.’ We all have great ideas. The difference is, the barrier to entry for us is as low as a laptop and time and an internet connection.

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:24

Maintenant que la saison froide - et surtout la campagne électorale - est terminée, l'industrie immobilière anticipe un certain redressement du marché ce printemps à Montréal.

«On prévoit que le prochain trimestre sera probablement beaucoup plus fort que celui qu'on vient de vivre, là, maintenant que les élections et l'hiver sont derrière nous, a fait valoir à La Presse Affaires Dominic St-Pierre (EMBA'14), directeur de Royal LePage pour le Québec.

Herald Food Writer Bugs Out for Dinner

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:21

Mintzberg On Why You Need To View A Company As 'A Community Of Human Beings'

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:18

“I’m a human being, not a human resource”. Is something I have heard my colleague Henry Mintzberg say a number of times. It really seems to resonate with people. Recently Henry published on his website an e-pamphlet called Rebalancing Society. In it he argues that society rests on three key pillars: government, business and what he calls plural society. Henry believes that business today in the West has too much power and we need more of the plural society.
