There is certainly a magnetic energy in the air when a group of unbounded business leaders have the chance to connect face-to-face. This amazing weekend had many highlights, including:
- Salim Ismail, OpenExO | Singularity University, pushed members to reconsider conventional beliefs and impressed upon us the real-world examples that have results from dismantling our collective “immune response” to the new and novel.
- David L. Cohen, U.S. Ambassador to Canada, is an open supporter of the business agenda on both sides of the border and pushed aside concerns raised about US-centric policies which may appear to threaten the open flow of goods and services across our border.
- Our CEO panel featuring Mairead Lavery (EDC); Heather Chalmers (GE Canada) and Gina Cody (Concordia) dove into the issues keeping CEOs up at night.
- We capped off an amazing weekend with by going off the record with Peter Mansbridge at the Canadian War Museum. Peter took us behind-the-scenes of 30 years of journalistic excellence around the world. Peter inspired us with stories of everyday Canadians having impacts on a global scale.
