Millennials are bold, inquisitive, ambitious and adept. If this demographic had the chequing accounts to match, they’d be a marketer’s dream. Unfortunately, they’re totally broke.
Youth unemployment rates are grim (14.1%), and many bright-eyed young graduates will stay jobless and deep in debt for a long time (the average Canadian university student takes 14 years to pay off their loan).
Ten months ago, I volunteered to help organize Desautels’ fifth annual Hot Cities of the World trip. I enjoy the challenge of detailed logistics; in my pre-MBA life, I booked national concert tours and publicity campaigns. As it turns out, booking a Canadian tour and booking a Russian trip for 44 people are very different beasts.
Five students from the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, Canada offered a rather innovative (read bizarre) solution to the challenge of the 2013 Hult Prize, considered by some as the Nobel Prize of the b-school arena. Responding to the challenge of developing a viable social enterprise to tackle the challenge of food security for urban slum dwellers, these students have offered crickets as an inexpensive source of food as well as a new source of income.
Kaže, da so ženske boljše krizne menedžerke od moških kolegov. Kaj je potem vloga nas, menedžerjev,« je pred leti, ko je priznanje managerka leta prejela Sonja Gole iz Adria Mobila, na odru Managerskega koncerta zastavil vprašanje predsednik koncerta Slobodan Sibinčič. In udeležence nasmejal z ugotovitvijo: »Morda je poslanstvo menedžerjev, da kolegicam ustvarjamo delo, da torej povzročamo krize ...«Prispevek skuša osvetliti odlike slovenskih menedžerk. So te pogumne nosilke vala novega vodenja?

Imagine, if you can, America’s most influential celebrity telling the world that she loves you and she loves your product.
And all of this, at the low price of next-to-nothing.
... All in all, David’s Tea “hit the jackpot,” marketing expert Demetrios Vakratsas concluded Friday.
For any company, especially one that relies on word-of-mouth advertising — rather than paid advertising in traditional media — Oprah’s endorsement “is a dream placement,” the McGill University, Desautels faculty of management professor, said.
International talent management specialists, a&dc believe resilience is a key focus for addressing the lack of progression of women in business.

Back in August 2003, Timothy Koller wrote in McKinsey Quarterly an article “Numbers investors can trust”, where he emphasized the importance of “genuine disclosure” of financial information by public companies. It was a call to corporations that wished to regain the trust of investors after the 2000 dot-com collapse. By strange coincidence, that year was marked by a new crisis of sub-prime mortgages, which was again partly related to the lack of proper disclosure of business and financial information.

There is uncertainty, there’s no question about it.”
Bombardier announced a big deal with Porter Airlines today, but it all depends on whether or not Porter can convince Toronto to expand its airport. Karl Moore is a professor of management at the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University.
