From our Alumni

  • "The Leadership Centre offers a valuable service to our Central Alberta community. Its focus on developing leadership capacity is key to strengthening individual and organizational skills and knowledge within our private, public, not-for profit and community sectors. The Centre’s ability to work closely with the community allows them to respond to their needs."
    Janice Wing,
    CEO Red Deer & District Community Foundation

  • "It doesn’t matter where I go in my work throughout the community, I can always tell the people who have been through Leadership Networks – they are the ones out there, they are making a difference."
    Mayor Morris Flewwelling

  • "Leadership Networks has assisted in the development of my leadership skills and taught me how to continually build upon them. The program has allowed me to network with great leaders and provided an opportunity to interact and learn from them. My eyes have been opened to what is going on in my community and increased my connectivity and awareness."
    Stephen Brosinsky, 

  • "The success of any business is directly dependent on commitment, training and drive. The Leadership Centre embraces these exact qualities. Making the commitment to the Leadership Centre is making a commitment to success. The tools and training that are provided right from the start are assets to any company, organization or individual."
    George Berry, 
    Berry Architecture & Associates Ltd.

  • "Leadership Networks is about finding the leader inside and bringing that forward. You are challenged to learn and practice leadership skills with the support of others on the journey with you. It has been a great experience."
    Kristina Oberg, 
    City of Red Deer

  • "Developing leadership skills is a journey that includes understanding self and how your methods affect both the people you are trying to lead and those you collaborate with. The Leadership Networks program has helped me to grow and develop as a leader by providing me with information, opportunities to learn from successful leaders in our community, and an environment to practice and receive supportive feedback."
    Robin McKay, 
    Energy Effects

  • "As a participant in the Leadership Networks program, I personally gained a lot - my confidence and skills flourished. The Leadership Networks program allowed the non profit sector to encourage the hearts of all the participants, who then went on to their organizations and sectors to do the same. The various community projects have also contributed to the non profits capacity as well. Red Deer and Central Alberta are truly better places because of this program."
    Stacey Carmichael, 
    Safe Harbour Society
