It was great to see so many colleagues at the OCT 3 gathering in Montreal.
Robert Greenhill, the Executive Chair, outlined the objectives of the meeting as;
In today’s challenging world, constructive and collaborative leadership matters more than ever. The three goals for this meeting are to
1. Create an opportunity for global Canadian leaders to meet one another—on the premise that when good people get together, great things happen;
2. Share insightful, up-to-date perspectives on the state of the world;
3. Brainstorm on creative ways for Canada and Canadians to contribute to a better world.
While it will take more than a day to change the state of the world, there was clear resonance and convergence on a number of issues that will benefit from a broad multisectoral approach. Now we just have to maintain the momentum.
