Thank you to all who attended the Deloitte Women of Influence Luncheon in Calgary on February 29th, 2012, with Sue Lee, recently retired Senior Vice President, Human Resources & Communications, Suncor Energy Inc. The feedback we received from this inspiring event was overwhelmingly supportive and highly engaged! Below you will find some of the highlights from Sue Lee’s keynote address.

    • Create a strategy to influence and make a difference in yourself and others.
    • Each of us inherits a time and place in history that shapes our role. Choose to say ‘no’ when something is no inline with your vision or values.
    • You can influence an organization from within, making subtle changes quietly, and gradually curving out a new path or way of thinking.
    • Communications are essential. People knit the fabric of the culture in an organization.
    • We need to encourage women to move into untraditional roles. As the workforce ages, women will become the next generation of leaders. As technology advances, women’s skills are excellent to adapt.
