Vancouver Island Chapter Presents
Success, Failure & Resilience in Times of Change

  April 24, 2017
7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. PST
Patient Care Centre Lecture Theatre, Royal Jubilee Hospital, Victoria

This is an exciting time to be a healthcare leader. Almost daily, we learn how research and technology continually reshapes opportunities to improve health care services. How might health care leaders embrace these changes? How might we adopt new approaches knowing failure is part of the road to success? And how do we build resilience along the way?

Guest Speaker:
Adam Kreek, Olympic Gold Medalist, columnist, adventurer and social entrepreneur

Adam Kreek will share his experiences with success, failure and resiliency as it relates to the LEADS framework. During his 13-year rowing career, Adam won over 60 medals, including 43 gold medal performances. In 2013, Adam made the first ever attempt to row unsupported across the Atlantic Ocean from Africa to America, the subject of the NBC Dateline Documentary, Capsized.

Adam is presently a columnist with CBC Sports; in his columns he shares health and wellness strategies for Peak Performance. An engineer by training, Adam serves on the board of Cowichan Energy Alternatives, a low carbon start-up on Vancouver Island. Adam is also a Champion of the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation, an organization dedicated to bettering health through science-based strategies.
