the leadership centre of central alberta presents

The 2018 Leadership Conference


The mission of the conference is to strengthen leadership capacity for businesses, non-profit organizations and volunteer sectors.  

Our Goal

When The Leadership Centre was established, it was at a time when there was a high turnover in Executive Director-type roles. Our goal has been to build capacity in the community to ensure that competent people have the necessary resources to step into those roles, as well as to ensure that there is a better understanding between the different sectors as to how we rely on each other and can help each other grow.

At the conference, our goal is to provide you with insights into what it takes to become an influential leader within your community along with new skills which you can apply to your personal and professional life. This conference is a way for you to invest in yourself while building upon and developing new leadership skills in an experiential learning environment. 

What You'll Receive

At the Leadership Conference 2018, you will have the opportunity to network with leaders of various industries and to learn which skills allowed our keynote speakers become highly effective leaders. We designed the conference atmosphere to provide attendees with  experiences that cannot be obtained online. When you leave the conference, you will have skills and knowledge that you can immediately tap into to advance your career or business.

You will also receive a special opportunity to join one of our leadership programs. These programs are designed to build upon the foundation you set at this conference and gives you access to a group of mentors year-round. 

Who is this for?

This conference is designed for current and developing leaders. If you are currently in a leadership position, this conference is a way for you to network and improve upon your current skill set. It also is a great opportunity for you to grow your team and their skill set so that your business has the capacity to grow. 

If you are a developing leader within your organization, this conference provides you the opportunity to learn how other leaders became successful and to develop relationships with future mentors. We designed this conference to help you maximize your potential and to accelerate your career.


Do you have a workforce who you want to invest in? This conference is an effective way for businesses to invest in their team and to help them develop together. It is also a great opportunity to send your up-and-coming leaders to help them be more prepared for executive roles and career advancement. 


Youth leadership is also championed at the conference, and representation from schools in and around Central Alberta is encouraged!
