Christopher Carrasco, from the School of International Business, has advanced to the second stage of the Great Canadian Sales Competition.

Round one of the contest asked postsecondary students across Canada to pitch anything they were passionate about in a 30-90 second video.

Christopher’s video entry highlighted the benefits of Mac laptops. As part of the next stage of the contest, he is now required to pitch one of the competition sponsor’s products to a potential buyer. The sponsors will collaborate and choose the top 10 for the final round to be held in Toronto, where the winner will receive $5,000.
