Launch of Les Rendez-vous ED X La Presse


Executive Education HEC Montréal is proud to present Les Rendez-vous ED x La Presse, a year-long series of online conversations focusing on the latest management-related trends and perspectives.

Moderated by François Cardinal, Vice-President, Information, and Deputy Editor at La Presse, these free webinars will bring together leading figures from business and academic circles to engage in lively, constructive conversations. Among the hot-button subjects they will address will be artificial intelligence, sustainable development, innovation and leadership. Each of these discussions will be followed by an interactive Q&A with attendees.


Stronger, together

“The goal of these webinars is to dive deeper into some newsworthy management issues with key players from the business community and the experts at HEC Montréal,” said Cardinal. “We’re aiming to combine the high journalistic standards La Presse is known for with the high academic standards that are the hallmark of Executive Education HEC Montréal in order to take a closer look at some of the social and economic questions that are important to our readers, businesses, and today’s managers and decision-makers.”

Michelle Vaillancourt, Director of Communications and Programs at Executive Education HEC Montréal, commented:

“This partnership with La Presse will merge our organizations’ respective strengths and give us an opportunity to hold informed debates about topics that matter to business owners, professionals, executives and leaders in Quebec.

These webinars stem directly from our commitment to training high-level managers as they strive to broaden and deepen their skill sets and competencies.”


First webinar — The Future of Work: The End of the Office?

The first webinar in the series will take place online February 22, 2023, from 11 a.m. to noon. Marine Agogué, Associate Professor with HEC Montréal’s Department of Management, Dominic Danis, President of Moov AI, and Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, will be the first speakers to share their views with François Cardinal.

With remote work becoming the norm for many organizations during the pandemic, to the point where many people are wondering whether the traditional 9 to 5 office setting is now a thing of the past, our speakers will explore how these new realities are affecting employees and managers, what the repercussions are on engagement, the employee experience and organizational culture, and where business leaders expect to go from here.
