The Next Canada with Jesse Brown

What does the future hold for this country? Are Canada’s institutions and economy at odds with rapid technological change? Are we keeping up? From business to government to education, disruption is coming. Jesse Brown draws on his experiences in technology and media to present this fast-paced and thought-provoking keynote about the exciting and challenging shifts ahead, and how to stay on top of them.  Jesse Brown runs Canadaland, the crowd-funded news site that has disrupted the way the Canadian media works.  Its companion book is a #1 Globe and Mail bestseller, and the companion podcast is the #1 podcast in the country. 


The Power of Healthy Tension: Thriving in a World of Increased Polarization and Complexity with Tim Arnold

As hard working professionals, our goal is to thrive both at work and home; however, we can get stuck in survival-mode due to increasing complexity, conflicting organizational values, and team issues.  The Power of Healthy Tension provides a simple four-step framework that will allow participants to distinguish between a problem to solve and a tension to manage; identify the tensions that matter most in their organization; and leverage these tensions for breakthrough conversations, mindful decision-making, and unified team effectiveness. The author of the book The Power of Healthy Tension, Tim Arnold has spent the past 20 years pushing the boundaries in the field of team-building and executive development, working with organizations including Bombardier Aerospace, General Electric, Hewlett Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Toyota Canada, and The United Nations. 

Set Your GPS for Success with Wayne Lee

Over the last 20 years, Wayne has presented for over 4,000 audiences worldwide. He has appeared on national television shows, radio programs and has presented to clients such as IBM, General Motors and Princess Cruise Lines. Through his motivational presentations and comedic hypnosis shows, Wayne entertains, educates and shows his audiences how to wake up the power of their mind to perform like the champions they are.  Deeply engaging and down to earth, he delivers life-changing content and an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind experience.  


New Paradigms: Mental Health in the Workplace with Stephane Grenier

Stephane Grenier has challenged society’s traditional outlook regarding mental health for much of his career by redefining how we should care for and support those affected by mental health issues. His body of work began in his very own workplace, the Canadian Military, where he created and managed numerous employee driven mental health programs that have proven effective over the years and have been sustained since his departure.  Grenier is a powerful speaker who provides a nice blend of evidence base, personal experiences and humour.

Our preferred hotel for this year's conference is The Prince George Hotel (1725 Market Street) and we have arranged a conference group rate for individuals requiring accommodations.  The rate for a Deluxe Guestroom is $167 for single or double occupancy.  The group rate room block is available until Wednesday, March 28 (or until all rooms are gone from the block if sooner).  All reservations for accommodations are done directly with the hotel.  To reserve your accommodations, click here.


CPHR Continuing Professional Development Hours

The educational sessions attended qualify for Continuing Professional Development Hours at one hour per hour of educational session attended (for our member CPHRs).  For the convenience of our CPHR holders, we will track the CPD for the educational sessions attended.  For those claiming CPD hours under the knowledge-sharing formal professional networking, they would track and enter that into the online CPD tool themselves as it would be difficult to track the networking CPD time for attendees.
