WHAT IS LEAD FORUM & AWARDS?

Where The Business World Meets

LEAD is one day conference providing attendees with exceptional speakers, an opportunity to connect with other business owners and a chance to celebrate successes with over 200 business professionals. The one day conference is a day of exceptional speakers, breakout sessions, panelists and finally awards.

The conference goal is for our presenters to share information leaving attendees inspired and motivated with new knowledge to achieve their goals. Entrepreneurs in small business make a difference, 95% of businesses in Alberta have 50 employees or less. A Globe and Mail article recently said, “Small Businesses are the Lifeblood of Alberta’s economy”. Grande Prairie’s entrepreneurs provide employment, stability, and opportunity for businesses and families to thrive by supplying goods and services to every sector while every boom bust cycle occurs.

All proceeds from LEAD to be donated to the recipient of the Lodestar (Non-Profit) Award.
