In her speech Nathalie challenged graduates to make their mark, by encouraging them to play an active role in the transformation of the world: “Don’t merely join the energy and fourth industrial revolutions and don’t be shy. Rather grab the bulls by the horns and lead these revolutions. We’re counting on you as global citizens to help us make the world a better place. Let’s write the future together.”  

Nathalie Pilon and ABB express their gratitude to Concordia University for this privilege and congratulations to the graduating class of 2018!
