Darren Entwistle to Step Aside as Telus CEO, President But Remain as Executive Chairman

Wed, 2014-04-02 15:01

Darren Entwistle (MBA'88) is stepping down as chief executive of Telus, but his influence in running the company he built from a regional telephone service into a $25-billion national wireless player will remain.

... McGill University professor Karl Moore said most CEOs leave after six to 10 years and don’t stick around as long as Entwistle.

“It may be a little long, but I wouldn’t be too critical of it because of the kind of change he has brought to Telus in the time that he has been there and been in charge,” he said.

À l’occasion de la sortie de son pamphlet «Rééquilibrer la société», l’académicien de renommée mondiale Henry Mintzberg discutait au Cercle Universitaire de McGill, jeudi 27 mars, de sa conception des priorités sociales. La société, dit-il, est composée de trois piliers qu’il faut savoir équilibrer: le public, le privé, et ce qu’il appelle le pluriel, «la société civile». Ces trois piliers donnent lieu à trois types de besoins: les besoins individuels, communs et nationaux.

Exhibit: Arabic lithographed books

Tue, 2014-04-01 00:00 - Tue, 2014-09-30 18:00
Morrice Hall : Islamic Studies Library, 3485 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0E1

The Islamic Studies Library is pleased to display a new exhibition featuring a fascinating selection of Arabic lithographed books from the Islamic Rare Books Collection.

Invented in Germany in 1796, the printing technique called “lithography” remained a subsidiary method for book production in Europe, but quickly spread to the Muslim world. Lithographic printing consists of writing by hand on a smooth limestone plate, on which ink is then applied, to produce a printed page. The word "lithography" comes from the ancient Greek "lithos" (λιθος) meaning “stone”.
