Dear members and partners,

The Canadian Club of Montreal is now in its 112th season. Once again this year we have an exceptional selection of business leaders who, over a good lunch, will be sharing their vision of the major issues and challenges we face in our respective organizations and communities but also, more generally, as a society. At a time when it can be difficult to keep up with the pace of major changes and the resulting emergence of new business models, it is important to network, gain some perspective and discuss best practices so that we can seize opportunities and grow our organizations. 

I am very enthusiastic at the prospect of serving as President of the Canadian Club of Montreal this year, and I look forward to working with the great team on the Board of Directors and the Club’s staff. Since 1905, the Canadian Club has been organizing events with some of our society’s most influential people, inspiring individuals and agents of change who generously share their visions on topical issues and important social challenges. These exciting times only underscore the relevance of the Canadian Club’s mission to be a forum for opinion leaders, great minds and original thinkers.

I know that we can count on our speakers to deliver many inspiring and thought-provoking presentations this year, but they will also encourage us to turn ideas into action in our own organizations and communities.

I am looking forward to seeing you throughout the season!
