Attendees will benefit from a wide-ranging overview of the challenges and opportunities facing leaders, from challenging the status quo thinking about Alberta's economy to gaining a greater understanding of how to respond rather than react.

The duty to accommodate and the question of vaccination requirements will also be up for discussion.
