Call for Speakers

The Better Workplace Conference 2018Oct 10–11, 2018 Vancouver

Are You a ...
Storyteller, Speakers, Expert, Motivator, Leader, or Innovator in Leadership, Change, Corporate Culture, and Workforce Health and Wellness?

If so, we’d like to hear from you!

This October, an engaged community of business leaders, human resources professionals, and organizational health practitioners will gather from across Canada to focus on key challenges and opportunities facing employers and their workforce—all aimed at helping to create and maintain a better workplace.

As we develop this year’s agenda we invite subject experts and practitioners to submit preliminary proposals to present at The Better Workplace Conference 2017, to be held in Toronto on October 24–26.

Have previous attendees at your sessions described you as a true expert in your field? Are you inspiring, motivating, engaging, and relevanta 5 out of 5 in your style and content? If so, we would love to hear from you, especially if your expertise is in one or more of the following areas:

  • The Future Workplace
  • Innovations in Workplace Wellness
  • Leadership and Organizational Development
  • Resiliency and the Impact of Change on Workplace Culture
  • Creating Outstanding Employee Experiences

Please submit a brief synopsis of your proposed session and clearly indicate how it links with the objectives of Canada’s #1 conference on creating better workplaces, now in its 21st year. Send it to John Brewer, Program Developer, at, and we’ll be in touch if it looks like you’d be a great fit for this year’s event.

If you are not a presenter, but have some ideas on who to include in this year’s program or, better yet, can tell us what we are NOT talking about that we need to talk about to make the workplace even better, let us know, and we’ll tap into The Conference Board of Canada’s extensive network of experts who specialize in those topics.


We’d like to thank our generous partners for their contribution to this event.
