XM: Extreme MEVA

June 3, 2013

MEVA LogoWe are electrified to welcome the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association (MEVA) as proud sponsor and participant in the WINNISPEED Agile/Scrum Extreme Manufacturing (XM) workshops with Joe Justice on June 10 and 11.

It’s gas! No, it’s electric!

It’s both. The Awsomeness Factor of Agile/Scrum is only part of the WINNISPEED attraction. Because the car we are building with Joe is completely modular, MEVA is intrigued at the prospect of swapping the gas engine module for an electric one. How agile is that?.

WINNISPEED

March 28, 2013

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.
