The Pillars To Host An Executive Brief On The Topic Of “What It Takes To Be An Effective Leader In 2020”

The Pillars is an organizational development consulting firm based in Montreal. They are holding an executive brief on Thursday, May 21 at the Holiday Inn Pointe-Claire from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM. The topic of discussion will be, “What it will take to be an effective leader in 2020. Three prominent CEO’s from Montreal companies will be there to share their ideas, answer questions and participate in a dialogue about the future of business leadership. C-Level executives and upper management are invited to attend this session, ask questions and participate in the discussion.

Caroline Samne, co-founder and Senior Partner of The Pillars comments, “The business world is changing faster now than ever before. Executives and key decision makers need to understand what makes a company successful and what it takes to be at the helm of a company in today’s world. They also need to ask themselves hard questions about the future of their company, the products and services they provide and the future of their leadership.

Lisa Bodell, award winning keynote speaker and best selling author of “Kill The Company” echoed the same thoughts at a recent Change Management Symposium in Las Vegas last month.  She said companies can not be tomorrow what they are today. Companies need to ask better questions about the challenges that face them in the future if they wish their organizations to survive.

Anne Pertus, co-founder and senior partner of The Pillars comments, “There exists ample training and tools for middle management in the area of leadership development however there is little opportunity available for business owners, CEO’s and senior executives to meet in an environment with their peers to have an open dialogue about the leadership challenges they face in the future. This is why we are holding this executive brief which is tailored for this group. We have a distinguished panel of three CEO’s from successful Montreal companies who will share their ideas about what it will take to lead an organization in the year 2020 and communicate their experiences, answer questions  and offer a venue for peers to participate in a informative discussion.”

This executive brief is open to all business owners, CEO’s and senior executives of mid-sized organizations. Space is limited for the two hour session. It is recommended that interested executives and business owners register at their earliest convenience by emailing  or call Christine at (514) 505-3069. Registration closes by May 15.

The venue is at the Holiday Inn Pointe-Claire, 6700 Trans Canada Hwy in Pointe-Claire, H9R 1C2. The CEO’s who will be part of the panel will be announced later in the week in a separate news release.
