Dr. Liane Davey
New York Times Best-Selling Author
Teams are the way work gets done in our increasingly complex, fast-paced, and global world. They are the basic unit of our organizations and a critical piece of the productivity puzzle. But for many people today, the reality of working on a team is sub-optimal. Instead of collaboration, we’re in competition with our colleagues. Instead of friendship and camaraderie, there’s gossip and backstabbing. It doesn’t have to be this way.

For the last 17 years, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Dr. Liane Davey, has been studying dysfunctional teams and has become the go-to resource at top organizations across North America who seek her expertise for deep insights on how to rehabilitate toxic teams and create healthy dynamics.

A favourite speaker of the Women of Influence community, Liane has the keen ability to help "lead people into and through the discomfort" in order to come out on top. Join her on June 4th, 2015, for an honest, insightful, and transformative keynote that will quite literally change the way you work within your team.

Deborah Gillis
President & CEO, Catalyst

Growing up on a gravel road in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Deborah Gillis was instilled with little ambition beyond the practical need to earn a living. Nothing in her background suggested she would eventually become head of a global organization, advising some of the world's most powerful businesses on how to expand opportunities for women.

Joining Catalyst in 2006, Deborah quickly demonstrated her operational savvy and strategic vision by introducing several new initiatives, and spearheading a global growth strategy. In 2014, she became the organization's first non-American president, and the first internally appointed.

Deborah's journey is not only inspiring, it is full of lessons that can be applied to your own life and career. Working hard, taking smart risks, and aligning herself with supportive mentors, she has exceeded all expectations. And her success has not been without its challenges: from her humble beginnings, to surviving breast cancer, to excelling in male-dominated environments.

A recognized advocate and expert on expanding opportunities for women and business, Deborah has made the mentorship of professional women a personal priority. As President and CEO of Catalyst, she is helping organizations transform their culture, and individual women exceed their own expectations. Join us on June 9 for invaluable inspiration and practical advice on moving your own career ahead.
