The Strategic Leadership Forum Presents:


Doug Williamson

Tuesday, March 25, 2014
5:30 - 8:00 PM




Canada is losing ground – fast. In fact, it is in a crisis!

In a world facing a seemingly never ending wave of huge, unprecedented and even frightening challenges, Doug argues there is an obvious and urgent need to refocus our efforts, change our thinking and reassess our priorities. To compound the serious nature of the situation, he suggests we are dreadfully short of the type of leaders who can inspire confidence or offer a solution. It seems as though our scarcest natural resource might very well be the thing we need most – leadership. Doug believes we suffer from a “deficit of ambition” bred out of years of having it quite easy in Canada compared to other countries who are more driven by a sense of urgency.

In this dynamic, thought provoking presentation, Doug will draw upon his experience working with business leaders around the world and offer a radical new framework for how organizations need to step up and play a new and important role.

Doug believes there is a crisis in Canadian leadership. That our leaders have been playing a safe, defensive game, and, as a result, Canada is falling behind in the battle for economic and social relevance in the emerging new world order.

What's the solution?

We need to cultivate a new breed of bold, internationally focused transformational leaders to reshape attitudes, mindsets and organizational strategies, and to create a Canadian voice at the global business table before Canada becomes a marginal player in a much better equipped world.


Doug Williamson, author of Straight Talk on Leadership – Solving Canada’s Business Crisis and CEO of The Beacon Group, is a Toronto-based global business leadership consultant and sought-after speaker on the issues of business leadership in the new economy. Integral to the transformational stories of many global and Canadian Fortune 500 companies, as well as smaller entrepreneurial businesses, Williamson is known for his provocative thinking, challenging insights and entertaining discussion style. In this presentation, he makes a passionate plea for Canadian business transformation and the development of leaders “fit for the time” and able to lead with a new set of modern competencies.
