Please join us on May 6, 2015 to hear Kathryn McQuade, a Transportation Executive with over 30 years of experience working for Railways across North America.
Finding the courage to "trust your own instincts" when making career decisions.
Everywhere you turn there is always someone that wants to give you career advice...blogs, websites, magazine articles, books and let's not forget friends, colleagues and family. Everyone seems to know what's best for you, but you. Often people listen to others ignoring their own intuition. Kathryn will share 2 decisions where "trusting her gut" rather than listening to others changed her career trajectory.

The Van Horne Institute will be holding a conference on Economics of Electricity Generation and the Environment . The conference is to be held in Calgary on May 28, 2015. The intent of the conference is to bring together economists working on competition policy and regulatory issues in electricity markets with policy makers, market monitoring staff, and industry representatives from Alberta along with other jurisdictions.
With the current volatility in oil prices, and groups like the Alberta Council of Technologies calling for leaders to "think ahead, shrink expectations and act quickly," organizations need more talent and capacity than ever to keep pace with change and drive sustainability. That means being more in tune with the dynamics we're seeing in the 21st century and, ultimately, more responsive to increasing strategic and operational complexity.
Blazing the trail: new century, new approaches to communication is a one-day, first-of-its-kind symposium designed to engage senior practitioners, managers and executives in defining key issues around the changing role of communication as an increasingly critical component of overall organizational strategy.
