What is B2L Clara Hughes Keynote Speaker What People are Saying

B2L is Canada’s premiere youth leadership conference for young women who are emerging leaders and entrepreneurs between the ages of 16-26. The conference's goals are to provide future leaders with tangible, actionable workshops that will contribute to their leadership and personal development, influence their career path and advancement, and to model and include them in a professional leadership conference. Youth delegates will be integrating with the Women in Leadership and Business Conference for the opening keynote address on Monday, November 21, 2016, and several refreshment breaks; providing them with a chance to network with professional women from many of Canada's leading companies and organizations. Over 200 young women from local high schools, colleges and universities, and young professionals will be in attendance!

Our speakers and presenters include some of the most recognizable women in business today, along with acknowledged experts, popular business writers and sought after speakers.  We were thrilled to have Clara Hughes as our 2016 keynote speaker. Clara is a Six-Time Olympic Medalist and Mental Health Advocate.
