The Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif conference is Canada's largest conference for coaches, researchers, sport executives, and administrators.

Theme of the 2020 Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif Conference: COURAGE BY DESIGN

Courage is a journey. To be great leader is to have courage to embrace a world of constant change, and still be great in the here and now.

Courage is intentional. It requires purposeful planning, commitment to action, and the willful advancement of growth and development by accepting failure as part of the journey.

Courage is demonstrated through action. To lead or follow with courage requires determination, compassion, and consistent practice.

Our sport community encompasses daring leaders and courageous change makers. We witness thoughtful acts of inclusivity, resilience, self-care and collaboration, and these examples of deliberate action challenge us to rethink our own behaviours and assumptions.

For growth to continue we need to open ourselves to vulnerability. A more diverse and inclusive structure for all participants must be established at home, in our boardrooms, on our fields of play, and in our locker rooms.

Our sport community encompasses daring leaders and courageous change makers

At the 2020 Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif Conference, we invite you to embrace Courage by Design. Through a series of engaging keynote presentations, breakout sessions and networking opportunities, delegates will be motivated to consider how their intentional acts of courage, inclusivity, and resilience can shape positive change.

Join your fellow sport leaders in celebrating moments of courage witnessed in 2020, and collectively committing to design and inspire future acts of courageous leadership in our sport community.
