Innovation: Talent, the New Economy and the Future of Food

Join us June 16 for four conversations about what Calgary needs to do to develop the next economy.

Calgary’s economy is moving forward into one built on the brainpower and ingenuity of our human resources, rather than carved out of our natural resources. Led by Olympic champion, Calgary business owner and Companion of the Order of Canada Mark Tewksbury, this panel discussion focuses on how Calgary must grow, attract and retain the talent we need to go from a natural resource economy to a human resource economy.
