Barbecue, Live Music and Zip Lining at the Second Annual Summer in the Park with Telfer Executive MBA 

‘Summer in the Park with the Telfer Executive MBA’ was a sold out event once again.  A mix of over 130 incoming candidates, current candidates, alumni, professors, staff, spouses and children attended the second annual event held at Camp Fortune on Saturday June 16th.

Attendees gathered in the fresh air and sunshine, surrounded by a green wooded area full of hiking and bike trails at the aerial park chalet. An outdoor barbecue picnic-style lunch was served, while families enjoyed the live entertainment of local youth musicians from Leading Note Foundation, OrKidstra; a music program for children 5 to 18 in under-served areas in Ottawa.

Toddlers and children armed with bubbles and animal balloons, sporting painted faces of foxes, reptiles, ran around the grounds entertaining each other while parents reunited with peers and networked with the extended alumni community.

The main draw came after lunch when both adults and children were fastened into their harnesses and fitted with hard hats and gloves and bound to conquer the multiple obstacles of the zip line high in the tree-tops.

Thank you to the families who made their way to Chelsea, Quebec to spend a wonderful afternoon with the Telfer Executive MBA community.

Mark your calendar for the third annual ‘Summer in the Park with Telfer Executive MBA’ in July 2017.

I found the live interaction with a really interesting and experienced group of people to be an invaluable learning process that provoked open-mindedness and renewed creativity.
