Speak­ers an­nounced for lead­er­ship break­fast

Lethbridge Herald - - HOMESTOWN NEWS - LETH­BRIDGE HER­ALD choose­leth­bridge.ca/break­fast.

Two speak­ers have been an­nounced for this year’s “Food for Thought” lead­er­ship break­fast.

So­cial en­tre­pre­neur and restau­rant owner Mark Brand will share the podium with Trevor Lew­ing­ton, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Leth­bridge.

The event, backed by the Re­gional In­no­va­tion Net­work of South­ern Al­berta, is set for May 16 at the Coast Leth­bridge Ho­tel. “We are pleased to sup­port an event that pro­vides busi­nesses at all stages of de­vel­op­ment, an op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand think­ing in new and in­no­va­tive ways,” says Bill Hal­ley, an ad­viser with Al­berta In­no­vates Tech­nol­ogy De­vel­op­ment, in a re­lease.

“In to­day’s ev­er­chang­ing land­scape we con­tinue to see how busi­ness progress is of­ten achieved by adopt­ing a flex­i­ble, en­tre­pre­neur­ial ap­proach that con­sid­ers both the fi­nan­cial and so­cial as bench­marks of suc­cess.”

Or­ga­niz­ers say the com­bi­na­tion of Lew­ing­ton’s in­sight on the eco­nomic trends im­pact­ing the area, along with Brand’s per­spec­tive on the value of blend­ing cor­po­rate and com­mu­nity lead­er­ship, will pro­vide par­tic­i­pants with plenty of “food for thought” on ef­fec­tive ways to move for­ward.

Tick­ets are priced at $45, with dis­counts for ta­bles of six or eight. They’re avail­able on­line at:
