I recently delivered a series of three one-hour long sessions on Leadership to many of the organizations working at Innovation Place in Saskatoon and Regina in hybrid sessions. The in-person sessions were hosted in Saskatoon. It was so much fun to interact with a live audience, especially after our two-year hiatus over COVID. Attendance grew each time to a full house as in-person sessions as became more common place again and the desire for leadership training is strong. It was a delight be invited to share my thoughts and experiences. Session recordings are here
