2016 Leadership Conference: Building a Culture of Resilience

Join us for a day of collaboration with leadership gurus who will cover topics of personal and organizational resiliency, leaving attendees with tools to build a culture of resilience.

In an era of globalization and technological change, volatility and uncertainty can often surround us. Resiliency is key to be an effective leader through change. Saskatchewan adapts to changing times by maintaining resiliency through fortitude and innovation. This culture of resilience allows sustainable growth for Saskatchewan by building its capacity to bounce back in difficult times.

This is the eighth University of Saskatchewan Leadership Conference and the second offering hosted by the Edwards School of Business. Our shortened, one-day format is overflowing with opportunities for participants to engage with speakers in their interactive presentations and workshops, and to connect with colleagues during networking breaks. The Leadership Conference series has highlighted topics such as the importance of trust, generational differences, leadership styles, sustainable leadership, and the role of conversation to help articulate and share ideas about leadership.

The 2016 Leadership Conference theme, Building a Culture of Resilience, will showcase leaders’ knowledge and expertise, as well as provide participants with take-home tools and practices on resilient leadership. In doing so, we hope to create an interactive, workshop style conference helping all attendees to build their individual and organizational cultures of resilience. The Leadership Conference will promote forward thinking and innovation, supporting the Edwards School of Business’ mission to develop business professionals to build nations. 

In 2016, we will have interactive keynote sessions and announce the 2016 Grandey Leadership Honouree at the fourth annual Spring Forward! Grandey Leadership Luncheon.
