“Since the publication of our 50 Under 50 in June 2019, Alumni Relations has continued to build on our relationships with these high-profile individuals.”
Concordia’s first 50 under 50 featured Q&As with all its honourees, who spoke candidly on the hallmarks of their success, the challenges they faced and their connection to Concordia.
To drive online engagement, mini videos were produced, including one for each of six categories:
- Corporate leaders
- Development, Construction and Real Estate
- Entertainment, Media and Sports
- Finance and asset management
- Retail and manufacturing
- Tech and entrepreneurship
Several staff and freelancers helped shape the project:
