The holiday season is a time for reflection and gratitude
As 2018 draws to a close, I have much to be thankful for. I am especially proud and grateful for the people who make up our
Alberta School of Business family, who continually innovate, excel, and make a positive
difference here at home as well as in communities around the globe.
To our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters, I hope that each of you will take the time
to enjoy a well-deserved break during this holiday season and reflect on your own strengths,
inspirations, and reasons to be thankful. As I look back on the past year at the Alberta School of
Business, one thing is clear: our growth, our success, and our impact is the result of the passion
and commitment of all of you.
In the spirit of the season, I also encourage each of you to give generously and/or donate time
to local charities, such as the United Way (an organization that my wife Karen and I have
supported for many years) or the Edmonton Food Bank. These are important causes for me
personally, but also resonate with the School's commitment to community engagement and
I wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season, and look forward to sharing in
the exciting opportunities of the New Year.
