ICD Edmonton Session – May , 2024

The presenting experts in governance , strategy and recruitment included Ardyce Kouri, Carmen Wyton, Darren Rawson , Janet MacEachern, and David Johnson . It was enlightening to have the different perspectives from private companies, non-profit associations and crown corporations.

A few takeaways as summarized by Sam Jenkins:

✅ Be Outcome-Focused: Emphasize your ability to influence outcomes. Your board career should showcase a lifetime of experiences, highlighting how you can contribute positively to the board.

✅ Be Proactive: Commit to continuous learning and building long-term relationships, not just for immediate gains but for future opportunities.

✅ Be User-Centric: Align your offerings with the needs of the organization you aim to serve. Start with a strong first impression through a strategically crafted resume that reflects this alignment.

Thank you to both Sam Jenkins and John Radostits for organizing this fantastic event for the Institute of Corporate Directors.
