Perspectives Lecture blazes a new trail
It was a packed house at the 12th annual Schulich Real Estate and Infrastructure Perspectives Lecture with over 300 students, alumni, faculty, staff and industry professionals in attendance. Held at the Ritz Carlton Toronto and co-hosted by the Schulich Real Property Alumni Association (SRPAA) and the Brookfield Centre in Real Estate & Infrastructure at Schulich, the Perspectives Lecture is one of the marqué events in the industry.
This year’s event entitled “Trailblazer” featured keynote speaker Jon Love, Founder and CEO of KingSett Capital. In the lecture, Jon shared 12 lessons acquired throughout his career journey – from his time as President and CEO of Oxford Properties to the founding in 2002 of KingSett Capital, Canada’s leading private equity real estate investment fund.
Emily Long (MBA ’15), Associate at Crestpoint Real Estate Investments Ltd and Chair of the alumni organizing committee for the lecture, along with Christian Petersen (MBA ’13), Manager, Development, Oxford Properties Group and President of SRPAA, kicked off the evening with a special welcome. They shared their personal experiences as students in the MBA specialization and described how it positioned them for success in their careers as well providing lifelong memories.
All proceeds from Perspectives Lecture go to the Schulich Real Estate and infrastructure Student Experience Fund, which provides financial assistance for real estate and infrastructure students to attend industry-specific co-curricular events such as case competitions, site visits, industry conferences, and mentor lunches.
The 2017 lecture was generously sponsored by Penthouse-level sponsors, KingSett Capital and the Altus Group.
