Young Canadians in Finance (Toronto) is pleased to cordially invite you to an evening with Mr. Patrick Cronin, CEO and Group Head of BMO Capital Markets.

In this interview Mr. Cronin will walk us through his various roles at BMO Capital Markets and his professional journey that brought him to become the CEO. During the session, we will hear what it is like to wear a ‘CEO’s hat’ and learn how top CEOs evaluate growth, teams and market opportunities. Mr. Cronin will also talk about the current banking environment in North America specifically Canada and share his insight on the future outlook of the economy.
We will then open the floor to questions from the audience. The diversity of the audience will lead to a fun discussion. We will conclude with an informal networking session where refreshments and drinks will be served.
