How does this unique business model inform strategic decisions at the company? Does the company's personality help it overcome industry challenges? What lessons can other companies learn? Join Gregg Saretsky, BSc'82, MBA'84, President and CEO of WestJet, as he provides insight into how the company's culture has brought it success.

About the Luncheon

Great Trekker Award recipients John Turner BA'49, LLD'94; Allan Fotheringham BA'54; and the late Pierre Berton BA'41, DLit'85; met at UBC, and maintained strong ties in Toronto by establishing an annual event. We're continuing this tradition, with the Great Trekker Alumni Luncheon.
