Symposium to bring together leaders of tomorrow

What do these people have in common: former Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke, management psychologist Richard Davis, industrialist Diane Reko and men’s fashion icon Harry Rosen?

They are among the speakers at the Odette Leadership Symposium, February 15 and 16. The symposium, a Richard Peddie Leadership Initiative, will help students and recent graduates from across North America to unleash their inner leaders.

UWindsor alumnus Richard Peddie (BComm 1970, honorary LLD 2001), retired president of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, will serve as the symposium’s honorary chair and will be one of the many session leaders donating their efforts to help develop the future leaders of tomorrow.

He says the Odette School of Business recognizes leadership as a lifelong journey.

“With its solid academic focus and its many campus clubs and team activities, the school already offers a rich leadership learning environment,” Peddie says. “The first annual Odette Leadership Symposium, with its very impressive line up of proven business leaders, will be an excellent addition to its leadership initiatives and another way Odette is working hard to create 21st Century leaders.”

Dean Allan Conway says the symposium will offer an opportunity to learn from a diverse set of highly accomplished speakers.

“Attendees will come away with valuable insights into how they can accelerate their own personal journeys towards becoming 21st century leaders,” says Dr. Conway.

Registration costs $50 per person. Find more information, including a full agenda and online registration, on the symposium website.
