Canada's Biggest Student Competition

 

GCSC 2016 Recap

With 1,549 student entries from 70 universities and colleges across Canada, the Competition grew by 700% in its second year, and we clearly established the biggest national student competition in Canada. Sales and business leaders from our amazing sponsors were interviewed by more than 50 TV news programs, radio shows and print articles nationally and locally. In many cases they were joined by contestants who got an amazing and unique experience that they will talk about throughout their careers. Most importantly, our mission was becoming everyone's mission: educating young people on new and exciting career opportunities in sales; building their appreciation of sales as a valuable business skill; introducing them to employers they would not normally get exposure to; and creating a much needed forum to highlight the skills of our new generation of business leaders.
