About Our Leaders Luncheon Events

Leaders Luncheon events are typically two-hour events held between 11:30am and 1:30pm at a variety of venues.  Designed to inspire, inform and educate, these luncheons feature keynote speakers chosen for their relevance to our Membership and our community.

Typically attended by anywhere from 50 to 100 Members, these events have included speakers ranging from local leaders like Patty Hajdu, MP Thunder Bay – Superior North to key informants in the financial sector like Deputy Governor Timothy Lane from the Bank of Canada.  Recently, we were very proud to host Thunder Bay native and Federal whistle-blower Kevin Page, Canada’s first Parliamentary Budget Officer.

Advance registration is encouraged for these events.

The Leaders Luncheon series is graciously sponsored by Cornerstone Member Intercity Industrial Supply.
