Several caring community organizations and individuals came together on Nov. 27 at the Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club to focus on Leader for Change: Caring Leadership for a Strong Local Economy. Co-sponsored by Community Services of the Sunshine Coast and The Progress Plan with assistance from the Sunshine Coast Credit Union, Sunshine Coast Community Services, Community Resource Centre, powHERhouse, the Status of Women Canada, Soames Point Bed and Breakfast and Coast Reporter, the evening was a chance to hear three dynamite speakers and to network with other Coast leaders. Many women who participated in The Progress Plan and Welcoming Communities were in attendance to contribute to table discussions on leadership on the Coast. Keynote speaker Vickie Cammack of Tyze (tyze.com) urged the attendees to take part in the social enterprise revolution. Create wealth to make a better world, she said. Visual artist Marleen Vermeulen inspired the audience to check into their inner selves and have the courage to achieve their dreams. Retired (as of five hours prior to the meeting) Glenys Robison who managed to make her speaking engagement at the meeting in spite of a delay in leaving Tokyo that resulted in her just being able to make the 3:30 ferry. Her open, honest presentation touched many in the audience.
