Success is What You Define It with UCalgary alumna Brianna Guenther, BHSc’09

Keynote address | 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.

 

Brianna Guenther is a lawyer with the Calgary-based firm Burnet, Duckworth & Palmer LLP. She will share her practical advice (never accept “no” as an answer) and personal experiences (a severe concussion didn’t slow down her law ambitions) to help you define and find success in your life — no matter what your interests are.

 Brianna believes everyone has the ability to succeed once they’re empowered to take control of their future.

 “Ignore the naysayers and you’ll accomplish great things,” she says.
