Diane Swain - Wednesday’s Breakfast Keynote

The Big Impact of Quiet Leadership:
A Challenge to Lead in Ways You've Never Thought Of
In this passionate address, Diana Swain uses the example of Canada—and the countless Canadians she's met—to deliver a thoughtful look at leadership. Where does leadership come from? What does it entail? Every day, Canadian communities, big and small, are rising to the great challenges they face. They are drawing on creativity, on determination and—most importantly—on quiet leadership, from unexpected places.

Swain's stories focus on the exceptional everyday people who realize that true leadership does not take the easy path; that it involves "hacking through the tall-grass of challenge to forge a new path." Leadership belongs to those who persevere and continue to work, even when the spotlight has passed. Above all, it falls to all of us. All Canadians. Exploring what makes Canada so envied, Swain also calls on us to make our own meaningful contribution. She creates, with eloquent language, forceful argument, and enormous pride, a snapshot of Canada—and leadership—at its very best.
