Following its inaugural event on May 4th in Toronto, Women’s LEAD travelled west to Vancouver, British Columbia, where a panel of local entrepreneurs, community builders and change-makers came together to provide powerful insight into leadership, excellence, achievement and diversity. Panel members included: KWENCH founder Tessa McLoughlin, Turf founder Deanne Schweitzer, Human in Motion & Chloe Angus Design, Chloe Angus, and CEO of Covenant House Krista Thompson.
“I loved everything [about the event]!! The diversity and dynamics of the panel and the overwhelming sense of empowerment and inspiration that came with it, the photo area, the social hour – it was all executed so well.” – Ellie G
“Congratulations on such a successful event. The speakers were amazing. I loved that the panel so openly shared their real life experiences – the successes but also the obstacles they faced. I heard many people expressing the same sentiments. The delicious food and bar were also much appreciated. We ended up cancelling our dinner reservation as we were enjoying the reception afterwards and just went down to the hotel bar afterwards. Thank-you.” – Jennifer F.
“The speaker presentation was fantastic – the speakers were ‘real’ – they were funny, passionate and showed that it’s okay to show emotion; the food was beyond compare; I loved the idea of the cocktail wall – which saved long line-ups at the bar; and I was delighted to have the opportunity to speak with the Olympians.” – Lisa D
