The 2014 Canada Sales Congress’ Gala Luncheon was highlighted by the awarding of two scholarships named in honour of Joe Dickstein, an industry legend and now retired Vice-Chair of PPI. These scholarships were awarded to top financial services students, Joy Yue Hu (pictured below) from Seneca College, and Peter Jackiewicz from Algonquin College. These students were chosen for their academic excellence and dedication. The scholarships were presented at the Gala by Grant Swanson, Executive Director, Licensing & Market Conduct Division of the Financial Services Commission of Ontario.
The awarding of the Joe Dickstein scholarships is a wonderful new tradition started in 2013 to encourage and support Canadian students of financial services. The scholarships are sponsored by Jim Burton, Chair of PPI and Lawrence Geller, Founder of online industry forum For Advisors Only.
