So many conferences and large events are going virtual this year – and in a number of cases are free to stream. I’ve attended sessions at Comic-con, the Hillside music festival and the Just for Laughs Festival – all online this year. It was obviously a very different experience, but I still managed to view some great content as well as make some connections. I did, however, have to provide my own refreshments.
This year, the Petro-Canada Sport Leadership Sportif Conference (Nov 4 - Nov 6, 2020) – Canada's largest conference for coaches, researchers, sport executives, and administrators – is going virtual as well. And it’s open to everyone to attend for free!
Courage by Design is the theme this year; keynote speakers and breakout sessions will focus on how intentional acts of courage, inclusivity, and resilience can shape positive change in Canada’s sport community. Presenters and facilitators include Benoit Huot, Paralympic athlete, and Kimberly B. Davis, Senior Executive Vice President at the National Hockey League. You can see the full program at the #SLS20 virtual event space .
