Innovation is the lifeblood of every growing and adapting organization. The first in our series of three, this day will concentrate on the personal nature of innovation.

Testimonials from last year's Leadership Summit:

"The highlight was certainly the ability to collaborate with others from around the province to use this process to tackle common problems of practice we all encounter.

"I was very glad I had a team there, folks who I can continue the conversation and learning with in the future - who can collectively support sharing it in the Board."
