Charles – an undergraduate Marketing student at Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business, currently on track to complete his degree in May 2016. Charles began his university education in film animation, learning the fundamentals of figure drawing, stop motion, and computer animation. His affinity for cooking and music led Charles to soon realize that all these fields were closer to hobbies than career paths, and this shifted his focus to marketing. Since then, Charles has discovered a true passion for marketing communications, branding, and business strategy, strengthened by his past interests in creative arts and culture. By deeply immersing himself in student life and participating in case competitions, Charles feels that he has made marketing not just a degree, but a lifestyle that fuels the desire to learn more and stay on top of trends. Participating in Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec has given Charles the opportunity to put all his interests into practice and given him the confidence in his choice of career path supporting his skills and passions.
