We invite you to join us for an invaluable discussion, led by change agents in British Columbia's health, finance, energy and technology sectors, highlighting how BC companies are leading transformative change in a rapidly shifting business environment. This panel discussion will follow our 50th anniversary Annual General Meeting and installation of our new Chair, Marcia Smith, Senior Vice President, Sustainability and External Affairs, Teck Resources.

As we reflect on the work of the Business Council over the past 50 years, a lot has changed for our member companies and business in our province in general.  The accelerated pace at which global competitiveness, technological developments and business model changes are advancing today has never before been experienced.  With the realities of climate change, the rise of the sharing economy and rapidly increasing disruptive technologies, innovation and adaptability are essential.

Hear from companies at the forefront of innovation in their sectors and who are driving the agenda on the global stage to reinvent how we access health care, how we develop clean energy and how we protect our data, operational technology and financial information as ever-increasing amounts of our business and personal matters take place online.

REGISTER TODAY for this must-see discussion, as well as our 50th AGM, where we will formally install the new chair and thank Jonathan Whitworth for his incredible leadership over the past two years.
