Ryan Walter keynote speaker for next leadership event

Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce's second event is this Saturday at the Clarke Theatre.

The second community leadership session is being held this Saturday at the Clarke Theatre, featuring keynote speaker, former NHL legend Ryan Walter.

The main address focuses on the power of influence, followed by a workshop with facilitator Christine McLeod.

With Walter’s local connection to the Abbotsford Heat hockey team, this session will appeal to anyone involved with coaching or leading sports teams in the community. He will focus on the lessons in his new book, Hungry! Fueling Your Best Game. Walter’s experience as team captain, coach and business leader have given him valuable insight into building successful teams and having them reach their potential.

His talk will be followed by the Leader Within workshop. Facilitator Christine McLeod will teach how leadership is not about the title on your business card, but about how you conduct yourself everywhere to elevate others and bring out their brilliance.

The District of Mission and Prospera Credit Union have joined other community partners to support the series. The municipality will formally acknowledge all full program participants as trained community leaders.

Other regional funding partners include the University of the Fraser Valley, Vancity Credit Union, Envision Financial, and Mission Community Foundation.

Individuals or organizations can register at the reasonable cost of $20 per session. To register or to find more information on the community leadership series visit the Mission Chamber website at www.missionchamber.bc.ca or contact Building Community Leadership chair Michelle Favero manager@missionchamber.bc.ca.
