The 2013 Higher Education Summit brings together colleges from across the province. It’s both an educational experience for participants and a celebration of the many ways college graduates help shape the future of Ontario, Canada and beyond.
Many of the Phelps partners and consultant attended the 2013 Higher Education Summit held in Toronto at the historic Fairmont Royal York Hotel, and this blog post, we invited them to tell us what the highlight of the conference was for them.
Premier’s Awards: Winners contributing to all
While the conference speakers were outstanding, the presentation of student graduate nominees for Premier’s Awards was my favourite part of the conference. Award winners, to a person, in addition to achieving personal success in their fields, all are seriously contributing to the well-being of others.

Alan Alda: Master of communication
A highlight of the conference was the brilliant presentation by Alan Alda. For some of us Alan Alda is still Hawkeye Pierce from M*A*S*H. For others, his role on West Wing comes to mind. But what Alan shared with us on Monday was very contemporary – the elements of effective communication.
