With nearly 450 delegates in attendance, the CPABC Spring Leadership Conference on May 7-8 in Vancouver was, by all accounts, a great success.
Now in its second year under the CPABC banner, the event featured 16 stimulating professional development sessions on diverse topics ranging from innovation and ethics to management and coaching, as well as great networking opportunities and a sold-out trade show.
For many delegates, of course, the Conference highlights centre on the three keynote presentations, each of which lived up to their reputation. Innovation guru Robert Tucker offered tried and true methods for building innovation into a powerful source of growth, profits, and competitive advantage. Guinness world record-holder Bob Gray showed attendees how they could improve virtually any aspect of their lives through simple memory enhancement techniques. And Jeremy Gutsche, a world-renowned expert in chaos and change, provided a framework to help everyone identify opportunities to become better innovators, better creators, and better at adapting.
