Manfred Kalk

Associate Director – Alumni and Events, University of Alberta School of Business

With 20+ years in the hospitality and events field, Manfred has worked on every size, style and genre of event you can imagine.  His drive for sustainability in his personal life is reflected in his current work, and in his 16 years with the Shaw Conference Centre.  Manfred started his career in the hospitality business as a bartender and is also a Red Seal Chef with a passion for great food.  His current role at the Alberta School of Business sees him and his team planning events from 10-800 people in cities all over the world and what keeps him in the industry is the great people, causes and diversity in events that he has had the chance to work with.

When he’s not teaching at NAIT or at his job you might run into him and his family at Edmonton and area festivals, biking, hiking or going for a run.
