Background

The Queen’s School of Business (QSB) Innovation Summit is the only student-run event of its kind in Canada. It was established almost six years ago by a group of MBA students in an effort to promote innovation and share insights as to how others have used innovation to transform their business. The Summit in particular focuses on ideation, integration and inspiration. The Summit provides networking opportunities, a series of panel discussions, and keynotes on a wide range of industry topics. A mix of professional and academics typically attend the Summit.

The Summit runs for one and a half days and takes place at the Queens University School of Business building, Goodes Hall. In the past we have been proud to host leaders from Google, LinkedIn, Nike, Deloitte, IBM, KPMG, Staples, ExxonMobil, RBC, Enbridge, Bombardier, the Canadian Government, 3M, Xerox, PARTEQ Innovations, among many others, to discuss innovation in healthcare, finance, entrepreneurship, energy, analytics, consulting and consumer packaged goods. Through student leadership and personal dedication, the event team is working on making this Summit the very best yet!


Demographics

The Summit attracts participants including Queen’s Alumni, MBA student, commerce students, engineering students, Queens students, the Kingston community, government and local corporates. Academic professors and other respected individuals are also present at the event. The previous event attracted over 200 participants and we are aiming for a bigger turnout this year.
