event-summary-videoWestern Canada has faced its fair share of challenges over the last few years – downfall of the oil and gas industry, looming housing market crash in Vancouver, non-competitive compensation structure with the rest of the country, and difficulties with recruiting and retaining talent.

In addition, companies all over the world are struggling to keep up with the pace of change and are being blindsided by emerging disruptors and new technological advances. Throw in the aging population, rise of the millennial generation in the workplace, uncertainty about future leadership qualities – and you got a recipe for confusion for businesses who are getting ready to rebound!
