MLT Aikins Presents The Walrus Talks Success in the West

MLT Aikins is pleased to present “The Walrus Talks Success in the West” on Thursday, June 8 in Vancouver.

The Walrus Talks is a series of events taking place in venues across Canada, exploring our nation and its place in the world. Produced by the Walrus Foundation, each event aims to offer inspiration and provoke discussion through seven-minute presentations from scholars, writers, performers, scientists, artists, business leaders and more.

The theme for the Vancouver event is Success in the West. Speakers will provide “leadership perspectives on building success for the next century,” and discuss “why the west is the key to Canadian success, and how the west will be won.” Talks will touch on business, technology, resources and community – to name a few.

  • Janet Austin, CEO, YWCA Metro Vancouver
