BTM Talent Mash

September 22, 2017

We are excited to announce that Manitoba’s first BTM Talent Mash will take place on Saturday, October 28 at Red River College’s Roblin Centre in Winnipeg’s Exchange District. Talent Mash events are held at post-secondary institutions across Canada which offer Business Technology Management (BTM) programs.

This event will give students, industry representatives, and RRC staff the opportunity to talk about the BTM program and how graduates can help to bridge the gap between the business and technology functions of an organization. Speakers representing various industries will discuss the roles, skills, and career paths of business analysts and other related professionals in their organizations.

BTM is a new diploma program at Red River College and our first students will graduate in December. The program includes a co-op or industry project term so that students can apply the skills they have learned.

The BTM Talent Mash includes a keynote speaker, panel discussions, and a networking event:

9:30    Registration and breakfast
10:00  Welcome and Opening Remarks (Kirk Johnson, Jan Hall, David Jones)
10:15  Keynote Address – Loren Cisyk (IBM)
11:15  Business Analyst Alumni Panel
12:00  Lunch
1:00  Industry Panel
1:45 – 3:30  Networking session
2:30 and 3:30  Tours of the ACE Space at 321 McDermot Avenue

The Talent Mash is free of charge for BTM students and industry guests. If you register as an industry representative, we will contact you about options to showcase your organization during our afternoon networking sessions. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
