18/19 Chamber Luncheon - Kevin Chief: We Are All Leaders: How A Bus Driver Showed Us Anything Was Possible
Join us as Kevin Chief will speak about how we are all leaders and how a bus driver showed us anything was possible. Kevin draws on his personal and professional experiences from growing up as an Indigenous youth in Winnipeg's North End, to his work in the community, education, and business fields. As a former member of the Legislative Assembly and Minister in the Manitoba Government, he is able to share stories of seeing potential and possibility, overcoming barriers, and creating opportunities out of challenges.
Through examining universal values such as talent, generosity and vulnerability, he can inspire a conversation about how a variety of groups from businesses to unions, media, universities, community, and churches can build successful relationships by fostering a path of reconciliation. That is a path to building healthy, strong and resilient partnerships.
