TWU School of Business Speaker Series hosts Darcy Rezac

Trinity Western University’s School of Business is pleased to announce the launch of its Speaker Series, presented by Great West Life. The first event, on October 11, 2012, will feature business leader and past Managing Director of the Vancouver Board of Trade, Darcy Rezac, MBA, speaking on The Power of Face-to-Face Networking in a Digital World.

“Research shows that face‐to‐face networking is in decline in our connected world,” said Rezac. “People often say we are too busy to connect in-person, and many would rather connect electronically.  Yet, it is almost impossible to develop the long-term trust required for success in business (and life) without face‐to‐face contact.”

A McGill science graduate and John Molson School of Business MBA, Darcy Rezac is an author, lecturer, adjunct professor and management consultant. A former business executive with Alcan and General Motors, he also served as a federal assistant deputy minister and, for 24 years, as managing director of The Vancouver Board of Trade. He and his co-authors, Judy Thomson and Gayle Hallgren, have worked with over two hundred Fortune 500 and other companies, government agencies, universities and associations on three continents. Their book, Work the Pond! (Prentice Hall NY), hailed “The Connector’s Handbook” by Town & Country, has been published in Canada, the US, China, Korea and Russia.
