About the Event

The GTACC Women in Leadership Event is a morning of Inspiration and Thought Leadership! Women from diverse industries, backgrounds and causes join us to share their thoughts around leadership, influence, and how they impact the greater community! This is not a Women only event and is open to all!

Keynote Speaker
Marnie McBean

Three-Time Olympic Gold Medalist | Specialist in Athlete Prep and Mentoring Olympic Teams

Marnie McBean is one of Canada's most decorated Olympians, and an expert in turning potential into performance. As a former Specialist in Athlete Preparation and Mentoring for the Canadian Olympic Committee, McBean prepared athletes emotionally and psychologically to ensure that they performed at the highest level in everything they can. Drawing on her years of experience as a top competitor and her current expertise, she leaves audiences with  a recipe for success that can be applied to all endeavours.

Mc Bean is a member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame and has been made an Officer of the Order of Canada. She holds a degree in kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario, as well as three honourary doctorates. As an ambassador for Right to Play, for Fast and Female, and for Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl initiative, she is actively involved in helping to promote the safety, health, and activity of Canada's youth.

McBean's book, The Power of More: How Small Steps Help Us Achieve Big Goals, outlines how the three-time Olympic gold medal rower sets and achieves goals, in sports and in life.
