In photos: DeGroote Insight Lecture draws more than 200 guests to Fairmont Royal York
On a crisp Tuesday morning in the heart of Toronto’s Financial District, the DeGroote School of Business welcomed renowned economist and academic Glenn Hubbard for the School’s annual DeGroote Insight Lecture – held in partnership with Columbia Business School, and supported by Adam Felesky, BA & B.Eng. ’99, President of Portag3 Ventures. The sold-out event took place at the Fairmont Royal York, and attracted more than 200 distinguished guests, alumni, students, faculty, and senior members of the city’s business community.
Hubbard is currently serving as Dean and Russell L. Carson Professor of Finance and Economics of Columbia Business School. He’s also the former Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and worked in the Executive Office of the President of the United States as Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.
During his hour-long lecture, Hubbard focused on the current state of the American economy and the policy decisions of the new administration. He also discussed the implications of these themes for the global economic order. A lively question and answer session was led by Sherry Cooper, TMX Industry Professor at DeGroote, and Chief Economist of Dominion Lending Centres. Below, members of the DeGroote Network can relive the event in photos. All images courtesy of Mike Lalich:
