Learn from a pro: Philip McCourt comes to Douglas

By Aleem Jinnah, Douglas College Business Association

If you're interested in a career in finance, don't miss out on this opportunity to learn from one of the best. On March 31, the Douglas College Business Association (DCBA) hosts an evening with Philip McCourt (CGA, CIRP), Senior Vice-President of Abakhan & Associates and a Trustee in Bankruptcy.

An integral part of the Abakhan team, McCourt provides his expert advice to their professional staff in all areas of their insolvency and consulting practice. Focusing on corporate insolvencies, including receiver-manager, trustee/interim receiver in proposals, agent, monitor, assessments, consultant and forensic accounting, he has been able to thrive in this lucrative area of finance.

With his unique public speaking style, McCourt will engage Douglas students and staff in a discussion about the path he followed to get to where he is today; his retrospection on what he did right and what he did wrong along the way will be invaluable information for all students. Along with war stories and tales of the ups and downs of the industry, the evening will be filled with high energy and lots of enthusiasm. There may not be another speaker like him for a couple of semesters, so don't miss out! Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served.

Date: Wednesday, March 31st 2010
Time: 5:30-6:30pm
Location: Room 2203, New Westminster Campus
