Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO of Thrive Global,
was honoured by the Associates, the University of Manitoba
and The Asper School of Business, on June 12 at the 35th Annual
IDEA (International Distinguished Entrepreneur Award) in Winnipeg.
Acclaimed by many as the "Dinner of the Year" it was not your
typical fundraising event, but an over the top soiree with delicious
food and wine, unparalleled networking, fantastic entertainment,
with performance by Tracy Dahl accompanied by Edward Dawe
and the evening ending with a spectacular medley from the
Broadway hit NEWSIES. Funds raised support Asper School of
Business student programming, faculty and student awards,
and upgrades to the School.
Ms. Huffington was a most worthy recipient of IDEA 2018, as
her achievements have empowered millions to expand their
capabilities and to think broadly about possibilities. With
Thrive Global she has been a champion against burnout and
addiction to digital devices. Her ultimate goal is to improve
wellness worldwide, she delivered a powerful message that
all 925 dinner guests left rethinking the way they live their lives.
|Thank you to all who attended IDEA 2018.|
Mark your calendars for IDEA 2019, which will be held on May 23, 2019!
