Gordon Campbell to reflect on Olympic lessons in Vancouver Board of Trade speech
Guess who's back?
Former B.C. Liberal premier Gordon Campbell is coming to town to give his first public address to B.C.'s business community since becoming Canada's high commissioner to the United Kingdom in August.
But, when he speaks to the Vancouver Board of Trade on Friday (February 10), Campbell is sure to get a warm reception, complete with standing ovation, from the business crowd.
A board of trade media advisory for "Olympics 2010 and 2012: Learning the lessons of a changing world" describes the event:
Only two days before the anniversary of the 2010 Winter Games, Campbell will reflect on the legacy of Vancouver's Olympics and discuss preparations for London's 2012 Summer Games, including what Team Canada's athletes and fans can expect.
Campbell will also share insights from overseas on our changing world, including how businesses and individuals are learning to adapt in times of uncertainty.
The event runs from noon to 2 p.m. at one of Campbell's signature megaprojects/boondoggles, the Vancouver Convention Centre's West Building (Summit Level). Campbell's speech begins at 1 p.m.
There's already a wait list for the event. For non-members of the board of trade, admission is $110 per individual or $1,056 for a table of eight, plus HST.
