Youth & Climate Action: How Millennials are Shaping the Future of Business

Climate change is the biggest challenge of the 21st century, and the issue for millennials. It is having a significant impact on the future of business and our everyday lives, which is why millennials and virtually everyone else are demanding action.

Our speaker, Dominique Souris, is an engaged activist and youth climate change advocate. She co-founded the Youth Climate Lab to support and encourage young people to become involved in climate initiatives. Through the Lab, she and others design projects that increase youth participation in climate policy processes, as well as action on the ground.

Dominique has advocated for change at the G7 Summit, UN climate negotiations, high schools and universities, travelling the world to highlight the implications of climate change and the urgent need to put things right. She insists our generation can no longer disregard the situation, but we can approach it with hope and recognition of the potential and opportunities.

Dominique and her compatriots are ready to engage and assist communities and businesses down the path to sustainability. She notes that her generation is demanding that employers be more sustainable, and employees prefer to work for an organization that supports and defends environmental issues. Climate change is also a competitive factor that can help involve and retain better talent.

It doesn’t matter who or what you believe, scientific facts are warning us about this very real issue. In the words of David Suzuki, “The gap between word and action is particularly different when it comes to climate change.”

Dominique invites us to think about a future with a clean economy and invites us to take action.

Strong Women. Strong Voices.

As women we are being asked to ‘Lean In’ more and more, to use our voices and ask for more.  So how do we do that? 

On March 6, 2019 in Ottawa at the Women in Business Conference (WIBC) we will explore some of the critical ideas around understanding how to work and succeed using our strong voices.  We’ll look at how you can brand yourself on an under-utilized platform, LinkedIn.  But more, we will use our voices to connect and network with one another.  And finally, we will take a day for ourselves, to re-set, re-balance and re-energize. 

I truly believe that you never know when you are going to hear that certain something that will mark a change in your life.  You may hear words that lead you to find the balance, make a change, or simply reconnect to that desire to do more whether big or small.  I’ve seen it happen.  It’s happened to me.

More, you’ll connect with friends and colleagues.  You’ll laugh and share.  It’s a feel good day.  It’s also a day to reflect, and to continue to grow in your professional and personal development.
 

I’ve been asked, why do I do it?

 
Simple, it brings me such great joy to put on this event, be it stressful at times.  But, when I see the women smiling, laughing, sharing, learning, growing, connecting and having those “aha” moments, I know I’m serving and doing what I’m meant to do. 

Each year I try to bring different, new and exciting speakers to the stage.  I try to find hidden gems so that you’ll have the “best day ever.” Now in our 11th year, the WIBC continues to nurture its four pillars: ConnectCelebrateInspireLearn.

Meet our Featured #WIBC2019 Speaker Line-up

Thank you for coming on this journey with me – Thank you for taking a day for yourself.

LinkedIn star Michaela Alexis – Speaker at the WIBC:

How to Build a Mega Personal Brand on LinkedIn on a Mini Budget

 

Ottawa native Michaela Alexis tells us it all started when she got laid off in February of 2016.  Now what? Right! I’m sure we’ve all felt that before.  Instead of going back to the 9-5 Michaela used her writing skills and took to LinkedIn with a purpose.  She leveraged the platform by asking her community of followers to help her find her dream job and in 2 weeks turned down four job offers.  Michaela built her own personal brand on LinkedIn, a happy accident turned into a true social media fairy tale by using the power of LinkedIn.

Listen to her personal story, and discover the ways that you too can start generating opportunities for your business and career by building a network on LinkedIn.  Did you know that LinkedIn has over a half a billion active users, and yet only 3% of users actually create content?  Sounds like an opportunity.

Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Learn what kind of content resonates with the LinkedIn community
  2. Discover how the LinkedIn algorithm works and how you can work with it
  3. Understand how to find your unique voice and make your LinkedIn content more digestible

What audience members can take away:

  • The possibilities that exist for them on LinkedIn, and the inspiration to chase them and conquer all of their wildest career dreams.

 


About Michaela

Hailing from Ottawa, Michaela Alexis is currently one of North America’s most in-demand speakers on topics related to LinkedIn and personal branding. Her journey started in March 2016 when an article she wrote about landing her dream job went viral on LinkedIn. Since then, she has replicated that success, with dozens of articles receiving millions of reads, featured on the likes of CNBC, Success.com, Buzzfeed, Inc. and more.  

Over the past decade has managed the online presence of more than 100 high-profile brands, built her own personal brand to over 130,000 followers on LinkedIn, works with Crowne Plaza as a Social Media Expert in their Meeting Mentor Program, and recently co-wrote a book called Think Video: Smart Video Marketing and #Influencing

The science behind gender differences.
(and how women can profit from them)

“I wish I knew then what I know now.”

Jill founded Genderversity after earning an MBA from Boston University and 20 years thriving in male-dominated corporate environments. She learned that businesses that consider female senior leadership equal to male leadership outperform those that don’t.

Genderversity has been educating business on the financial impact of gender diversity using leading-edge, international gender science since 2014. Genderversity applies why and how to our gender differences, thereby ultimately maximizing corporate profitability.

Only 5% of publicly held companies are led by female CEOs. Jill has encouraged and supported women to own their potential and rise through the ranks since the early 1990s.


The Science Behind Our Gender Differences and How Women Can Capitalize on Those Differences!

 

Synopsis of talk:

Intuitively we know we are different than men, but it is only with the recent advances in neuro-science that are we able to understand how to work and succeed in business with these differences.

The Rule of Three:

  1. Men and women are engineered very differently.
  2. Neither gender is better or worse… only different.
  3. Three ways to start capitalising on these differences today.

Why should this matter to you?

  • I was a female CEO working with an all-male Board and Management Team, and many times I felt like a stranger in a strange land. I wanted to understand how we could communicate in the same language and yet have no clue what the others were saying.

What audience members can take away:

  • Men are not going to pave the way for us. We have to do it our way and help each other.
  • Men are not to blame.
  • The ‘Rule of Three’ for optimal success in getting ahead in a male-managed world.

 


About Jill

Jill is a Certified International Gender Intelligence Trainer and Facilitator and a 2017 recipient of Star Performer Top Business Advisor in Massachusetts.  Genderversity (Formerly known as Gendernomics™)  applies leading edge gender science research to show businesses how to deliver up to 65% more profitability from their organizations.

Jill started her business career at age 8 here in Canada working in her father’s manufacturing company located in Ontario.  Her father played a huge mentoring role in Jill’s business growth and career. 

After leaving college, Jill worked for one of the world’s Top 10 Advertising Agencies where she became the second youngest person to ever be promoted to Vice-President.  As VP, Account Director, Jill managed clients like Procter & Gamble, General Foods, Beecham and Revlon.  She left Canada and her advertising career to become involved in a troubled manufacturing company in the Boston area, where over a 10-year period she rose from VP Marketing to CEO.  Harvard Business School wrote and taught a case study about Jill and her Marketing programs that turned the troubled manufacturer from near-bankruptcy into profitability. 

She interviewed for the CEO job as the company teetered on the brink of bankruptcy following corporate malfeasance by the prior CEO.   During the interview process for the CEO position, she asked the all-male Board, “Why are you interviewing me for this CEO position?” The answer she got was very surprising – “Because we can’t find a man to take the job – no man wants his name on a certain failure”.

Jill took the job anyway and we are certain you will ask her reasons why!  She was successful in keeping the publicly-held company out of bankruptcy and turned it around into profitability ultimately selling it to a Private Equity Group.  At that time, only 3% of the world’s companies were led by a female CEO and today that number is only 5% and has stalled at the large corporation level. 

After the sale of the Company in the early 2000’s Jill looked for, but was not successful, in getting another CEO position.  So she started her own company doing turn-around and restructuring work – going into troubled businesses and trying to fix them which she also did very successfully working on companies ranging from $125MM up to $2 billion in revenues.  

In 2011, while reading an article in Harvard Business Review about “The Glass Cliff”,  Jill had an “AHA” moment.  Harvard had conducted research that clearly demonstrated that women who took on CEO work in periods of turmoil or crises and turned the company around, never got hired again as a CEO.  Continuing her research into Glass Ceilings and Glass Cliffs led Jill into the many studies published since 2001 about how businesses that take on senior female leadership outperform those that don’t.  She took the deep dive into the rapidly-growing area of gender science to learn why this is the case.

Combining her CEO leadership and turn-around experience with what she learned from the vast international body of Gender Science, Jill launched Genderversity. Genderversity works with corporations to teach the gender-science differences between men and women and applies the “why” and “how to” for those organizations who want the well-documented and proven improved economics that gender diversity brings to Corporations.  

She sits on three different Corporate Boards.  She consults to the largest mutual bank in the U.S.  for their Business Equity Initiative program and to Goldman Sachs for their 10,000 small business program.  Most recently, the American Small Business Development Centers recognized Jill as the top small business advisor in Massachusetts where she was awarded the coveted State Star Performer award.

Jill’s M.B.A. is from Boston University.

you shine the brightest when you lighten up

On a mission to help people see the lighter side of life, Susan Stewart
delivers a unique combination of comedy and inspiration that reveals how
we can take life too seriously and how to meet adversity with a positive
outlook, and of course, a sense of humour.

Professionally speaking, Susan has taken a winding road. After earning
a Theatre Arts degree from the University of Waterloo, Susan moved
to Toronto and began performing stand-up comedy and toured a
one-woman show to various Fringe Theatre festivals around Canada.
Five years into her comedy career, fear and self-doubt manifested into
depression and anxiety which led Susan to quit doing comedy and
uncertain if she would ever perform on stage again.

After quitting stand-up comedy, Susan landed a Human Resources
position with the Ontario Government (a very long story and feel free to
laugh) where she was asked to write and present a comical presentation
about wellness at a staff professional development conference. Susan’s
presentation was a smash-hit and as they say, the rest is history. Susan
eventually left her office life to return to the stage full-time.

For the past 10 years, she has been touring around North America using
her comedic powers for good, rather than evil.

Join us at the Women In Business Conference to have a laugh and learn how to meet life with a positive outlook, a resilient spirit, and of course, a sense of humour!


Susan Stewart – Attitude of Gratitude

Toronto-based author and speaker, Susan Stewart, offers a quick and easy solution to stress…an attitude of gratitude.
