On November 17th, 2016, i150’s Chairman Colin Jackson, and ED Trevor Shelley, held a lunch discussion, co-hosted by the Canada West Foundation and its President, Martha Hall Findlay. The conversation was facilitated by Matthew Stone of Stone-Olafson. Local artist and animation specialist, Sam Hester, recorded the event in an extraordinary visual representation (as per image; for more info on Sam, visit: http://www.the23rdstory.com).
Those in attendance included: Jeff Boyd (RBC), Karen Radford (Enbridge), Andrea Goertz (Telus), Wayne Chiu (Trico), Sharon Carry (Bow Valley College), Jim Gray (Brookfield), Druh Farrell (Ward 7 City Councillor), Firoz Talakshi (KPMG).
i150 gathered the aforementioned distinguished leaders together to offer their insights, thoughts, and suggestions about i150’s sesquicentennial legacy project: Possible Canadas 2.0: Youth’s Visions for the Nation’s Future, based on their vast range of experience in community building, leadership, and decision-making.
Consisting as it did of representative potential recipients of i150’s vision document–the resultant objective of the aforementioned project–the discussion group contributed to i150’s improving and refining of its project, so that the design and results have the distribution and impact merited. It was a most encouraging and rewarding event.
