Location: Chateau Laurier - 1 Rideau Street, Ottawa
In our 150-year history, we have come a long way together. Canada has achieved growth and economic prosperity while fostering increasingly progressive approaches to leadership. Now facing a more complex and globally-connected playing field than ever before, the country faces a new wave of challenges. Disruption touches each sector in the way we work, learn, and lead. It has become clear that Canada’s economic prospects remain only as strong as our organizations and their leaders, and the degree to which they are willing to embrace disruption and evolve in the ways they do business. In this new reality, leaders from Canada’s economic drivers weigh in on what it takes to challenge the status quo and lead into a thriving future.
Moderated by: Michael Tremblay, President & CEO - Invest Ottawa
Opening Remarks by: Michelle Richard, Partner - Boyden
Closing Remarks by: Ron Robertson, Partner & Canada Leader, Board Services Practice - Boyden
