Head Speaker Coordinator

The Legacy Conference is Canada’s largest student-run entrepreneurship conference. But TBH, we don't even like the term conference. We're just a bunch of passionate kids getting smart interesting people together.  Basically, we are hosting the greatest party ever. Think of yourself as the DJ, shaping everyone's experience.

Legacy is an event designed for the dreamers of today and creators of tomorrow.

Every year, The Legacy Conference brings in world-renowned entrepreneurs, serious brands and students from across Canada to one space. Sounds awesome? You’ll get to market that.

We're looking for someone with a great personality who’s ready to get shit done and help us creatively grow our “young entrepreneur ecosystem.” If you’re the person who is addicted to motivational podcasts, this might be the role for you.
