Communications students to attend prestigious seminar

Six Corporate Communications students have been invited to attend the Arthur W. Page Society annual spring seminar, to be held in New York City in April.

“The Page Society Spring Seminar gathers the most influential thought leaders and corporate communicators for an exclusive conference that charts the leading edge of our profession,” said Roger Bolton, president of the Arthur W. Page Society. “Continuing to advance those boundaries requires that we cultivate the next generation of leaders, and so we are delighted to welcome these promising students to join us."

Students will volunteer at the seminar and attend lectures. Octavian Barbu and Ashley Meikle will serve as lead volunteer co-ordinators, supported by Alexandra Zeifman, Shona Bewley, Spencer Emmerson, and Ghadah El-Shimy.

“I am proud to have these students representing Seneca at the Page Society Spring Seminar,” said Dr. Adrew Schmitz, Chair of English and Liberal Studies. “Seneca’s Corporate Communications program and the Arthur W. Page Society both strive to hold communications professionals to the highest standards in quality and integrity.”
