The fmi*igf Halifax Chapter's April event will be held on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Come and join us at the Brightwood Golf and Country Club, 227 School Street, Dartmouth for an informative professional development session entitled "Women in Leadership". You will hear presentations from Joyce Carter, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) and Anne-Marie Gammon, President and Chief Executive Officer of CPA Atlantic School of Business.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. The cost of this session is $75.
Joyce Carter's session is entitled "Effecting Change Through Collaboration". Halifax Stanfield International Airport is managed and developed by Halifax International Airport Authority. The airport is worth over $2.8 billion annually to the Nova Scotia economy, and employs over 5,600 workers. It is a catalyst for economic and social growth in the region, and has significant plans for growth. So much of what it does enables growth, through tourism, trade, economic prosperity, immigration, and business to business connections. Hear from President & CEO Joyce Carter on how a collaborative leadership style is key.
Anne-Marie Gammon's session is entitled "Resilience and Women in Leadership". Innovation. Disruption. An increasingly complex world. More than ever, resilience matters. This interactive session explores the resilience of women in leadership. Resilience will be defined as a critical leadership trait and how it is borne from trials and tribulations. We will then explore how resilience can be developed and sustained individually and organizationally as we adapt to the constant challenges of contemporary leadership.
