Howard Armitage with Waterloo Mayor

Howard Armitage receives the Waterloo Award from Mayor Dave Jaworsky. 

Howard Armitage, founding director of the Conrad Centre, was recognized with the City of Waterloo's highest honour last month. Howard was celebrated for his contributions to the community as a trail-blazer in the education space, an active board member in the non-profit community, and an inspiring teacher. He was recognized for his leadership in the creation of the MBET program, the first business program of its kind in Canada devoted to entrepreneurs. 

His nominator, Tim Jackson, stated: "Howard personifies the innovation qualities inherent in the Waterloo Award. He is a holistic, big picture thinker whose creative innovations have changed the face of business education." And, as one of Conrad's advisory council members described his achievements, “students who come to his program will change industry, they’ll change companies, they’ll change culture.”
