Why we need the world's best

Tue, 2012-10-30 14:13

The great historian Marcel Trudel liked to talk about the myths and realities of Quebec's history. On my side, I'll talk about the myths and realities of the international role of Quebec's universities - a key role for the success of Quebec.

… Half of McGill's alumni live in Quebec, including many one-time international students who fell in love with Quebec and never left. A good example is Aldo Bensadoun (BCom’64, LLD’12), the founder of the Aldo Group, who perhaps you saw recently on Tout le monde en parle.

Shopper Marketing Panel Discussion

Mon, 2012-11-12 05:00 - 07:00
Shopper Marketing

Shopper marketing used to be about guiding the consumer along the last few steps on the path to purchase - But today that path is more loop than funnel.

Understanding consumers is not the same thing as understanding shoppers.

Shoppers today are emotionally overloaded with the multitude of purchase options available. Doesn’t it make sense to gain insights into why a shopper decides to buy your brand versus someone else’s? There’s only one place that happens and that’s in the store — be it via bricks or clicks.
