The Leaders' Corner with James Temple, PwC Canada

The first time I met James was at his PWC office in Toronto 2 years ago. I was new to my role, new to the sector, and new to fund development. I admit I was a bit nervous; I had only met a few funders - how would I relay our mission and the impact our organization has in our community? I came away from that meeting so impressed with James and his obvious passion for his role in supporting capacity building in not-for-profit leadership. (And he gave me a nice box of chocolates!)

This workshop will provide you with a strong foundation for implementing change leadership practices. Learn practical tools to embrace the human dynamics that lead to success or failure in implementing change.

Designed specifically for the experienced not-for-profit leader - learn how to move beyond boardroom fundamentals and into strategic, generative, and fiduciary governance – and understand why it’s critical to your organization’s success.
