On the weekend of April 29 and 30, 2023, Your McMurray Magazine’s Top 50 Under 50 from the past two years, the Leadership Wood Buffalo cohort, and new and emerging leaders in the Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo region all gathered together for the first-ever Leadership Summit.
Hosted in the beautiful Acden headquarters, attendees started the day with a light breakfast including bannock and Gin Bits from Ginger’s Bannock House, and coffee from Firebag Coffee Company.
Opening remarks were given by the co-hosts, Acden, Balsom, and FuseSocial, as well as the event’s emcee, Paula Galenzoski
Carla White of Crisp Connections then guided participants through a remarkable day full of interactive and engaging experiential exercises to encourage connection and a sense of community.
Participants enjoyed moments of laughter, learning and connection (as well as 30-second dance parties), and walked away having met with many leaders who are making a difference in our region.
