On October 16 and 17, the City of Greater Sudbury and Laurentian University will host their second annual Northern Leadership Summit.
The event, sponsored by Canadian Government Executive magazine, is being putogether to strengthen innovative and collaborative leadership networks, present the latest research on leadership development, and lay a foundation for the development of a new Leadership Institute.
“We built up some extraordinary momentum with last year’s inaugural Leadership Summit, and we are delighted to see that energy moving us forward,” said Laurentian University President and Vice-Chancellor Dominic Giroux. “This is a truly collaborative undertaking and all of the partners have a real commitment to working together to grow our leadership potential.”
The Summit opens on the 16th at the Vale Cavern of Science North with a keynote address by Stephen M. R. Covey, New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author of The Speed of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything. A former CEO of the Covey Leadership Centre, he led the strategy that propelled his father’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, to become one of the most influential business books of the 20th century. Covey co-founded CoveyLink, a learning and consulting practice focused on enabling leaders and organizations to achieve superior performance.
The Summit then moves to Laurentian University for a full day of interactive discussions, round-table conversations and a keynote by Dr. Jennifer J. Deal, senior research scientist at the Centre for Creative Leadership at the University of South Carolina.
