President’s Note – June 23rd

Learning gives Energy – Inspiring Innovation

It is my honour to be writing this note from our 2nd edition of the “Adaptive Leadership Course for Tech Professionals”With all the courses that I have been to, it is exciting to be inspired and surprised – by not only the instructor, but the students. This first day of the multi-day course is on a Thursday afternoon – and the tech professionals (students) are SO EXCITED to be here, and SO LOOKING FORWARD to learning how to lead their teams better.. and grow their tech companies. Their interests were centered on bringing more value to their teams, instead of doing this for themselves.  With great power comes great responsibility… indeed. So exciting to see such responsible current and future leaders – I am inspired.  

Continuing on the Inspiration Theme – Do consider filling out the Nomination Form before June 30 for the ASTech Awards  “Alberta’s Academy Awards of Science, Technology, and Leadership” which has been Inspiring Innovation for over 30 years, by celebrating the outstanding tech companies and researchers throughout our province. Categories range from Digital, Health, Energy, Environment, AerospaceRegional Innovation and more – and the nomination process is not onerous. So take a moment, to make this their moment, and Alberta’s moment, and all our moment!  Help us recognize the excellence in our companies, teams, and communities across all regions in Alberta. Let’s break last year’s record again – and Thank you!
