Eric has delivered many lectures and events for the Edward’s School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan, as well as Saskatchewan Polytechnic (formerly known as SIAST).
He spoke to a group of visiting Beijing Institute of Technology MBA students, on behalf of the Hanlon Centre for International Business Studies in the Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan. This presentation, like the keynote address at the World Potash Forum, required the use of a live translator.
His lecture series – WISER – The World’s Impact on Saskatchewan’s Economy and Resources – was for University of Saskatchewan and SIAST students; in collaboration among the SITO Youth Opportunities Society, the Hanlon Centre for International Business, and Edwards School of Business (University of Saskatchewan), as well as the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM) Saskatoon Student Chapter. The CIM’s participation brought with it students from SIAST. The WISER series unveiled the numerous global items that impact Saskatchewan’s natural resources sector and thus economy. The events discussed ranged from; supply and demand, to political and social, and even to the natural – acting as direct or indirect determinates of change.
The WISER series was developed and chaired by Eric Anderson of Prosperity Saskatchewan. Each event featured an introduction and background provided by Eric Anderson, followed by a speaker from leading international companies, government, and other groups. The WISER Series presented numerous successful executive-level speaker events since 2012, which increased student and community awareness of Saskatchewan’s natural resource’s role in the domestic and global community.
