Adaptive Leadership - A Dialogue with Mayor Nenshi

March 14, 2014 
  8:00 a.m. - 8:50 a.m. PST

Featured Speaker:
Naheed Nenshi, Mayor of Calgary, Alberta

Naheed Nenshi is serving his second term as Calgary's 36th mayor. Prior to becoming mayor, he ran a large nonprofit, was a trusted advisor to corporate leaders in Canada and the US, and literally wrote the book on Canadian cities.

Mayor Nenshi spent many years at the international business consulting firm, McKinsey and Co., where he advised large telecommunications, banking, retail and oil and gas companies in corporate strategy.  After leaving McKinsey, he formed his own business, the Ascend Group, to help public, private, and nonprofit organizations grow. In this role he designed major policy for the Alberta government, helped create a Canadian strategy for The Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy and worked with the United Nations to determine how global business can help the poorest people on the planet. Mayor Nenshi was Canada's first tenured professor in the field of nonprofit management, at Mount Royal University's Bissett School of Business.

He's the lead author of Building Up: Making Canada's Cities Magnets for Talent and Engines of Development and has long put his ideas to work in Calgary.

Prior to becoming mayor, he was the Chairman of the EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts, and lent his expertise to nonprofits across the city, including the Calgary Foundation, the United Way, the Coral Springs Community Association, and Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids. He also served on the leadership team of imagineCalgary, where he was a primary author of Calgary's 100-year vision, and is a co-founder of the Better Calgary Campaign and of CivicCamp.

He holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree (with distinction) from the University of Calgary, where he was President of the Students' Union, and a Master in Public Policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where he studied as a Kennedy Fellow.
