Welcome CIC

May 31, 2013

We are delighted to welcome CIC as a Friend of WINNISPEED. The Composites Innovation Centre is a not-for-profit Manitoba corporation that is jointly sponsored by private industry and government. Its mandate is to support and stimulate economic growth through innovative research, development and application of composite materials and technologies for manufacturing industries.

“CIC is excited to be part of WINNISPEED’s broader mission related to solving problems for social good. If composites can assist with that in terms of being ‘greener’ or leaving less carbon footprint in terms of manufacturing processes than that’s what we are all about.”

Following raves in Barcelona and Paris, you can be one of the few organizations to join Joe Justice in the first Team WIKISPEED workshops in Canada. In each of two “WINNISPEED” workshops June 10th and 11th, Joe will guide participants through the building of a car from scratch to demonstrate how Agile techniques can transform your organization.

After that, you can apply the same concepts and methodologies to your own context (corporate innovation, small hardware/design start-up, service based startup, NGO, education, etc…) and begin to change the world.

The event will be professionally video taped for later release.


Business Conference Helps Students Network

March 9, 2012

RRC business students will have a valuable opportunity to rub elbows with leaders from Manitoba’s business community at Red River College’s 2012 Directions Business Conference.

Approximately 600 people, including past RRC alumni, are expected to attend this year’s event, which will be held on February 1 at Canad Inns Polo Park.

The annual business conference is aimed at engaging RRC students in the school of Business and Applied Arts, and helps provide them with a chance to meet people in the industry where they want to work. Participation also allows students to create contacts, and benefit from the experience of attending a professional business conference.

Students will be able to take in valuable career advice from Paul Soubry Jr., President and CEO of New Flyer, who is the event’s breakfast keynote speaker. After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce from the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba, Soubry went on to study at Harvard and began his career in Winnipeg at Standard Aero. He eventually became that company’s president before joining New Flyer in 2009, and now sits on the Board of Directors at Mondetta Clothing, the Associates IH Asper School of Business, Economic Development Winnipeg and the Winnipeg Airports Authority.
