Leading Change

Change is industry agnostic. Change doesn’t care how large or small your organization is. And in the innovation journey, it’s inevitable (if not the point).

At Connection Silicon Valley we get the chance to connect with many of Canada’s leading intrapreneurs every day. We hear you, exhilarated but weary. The vulnerability that comes from breaking the mold and overcoming decades-old forces cannot be underestimated..

A day of ideas and connections

This October, we’re partnering with global change agency, NOBL to host the second edition in the Built to Change series, Leading Change, a unique day-long experience built around thought-provoking content, peer problem-solving and lessons learned from the world’s highest performing teams:

  • Learn how leaders can shepherd their teams through transformation. 

  • Learn how to understand and cultivate a strong network of aligned and motivated peers and stakeholders that can help build bridges, promote change and close personal blind spots.

  • The most innovative companies understand how to cultivate true collaboration. We’ll go beyond shared values and look at the leadership mindsets and behaviors required to build co-creation, inclusiveness and transparency at all levels of culture. 

Business-Challenge Work Groups

Business-challenge work groups will give participants a chance to gather and apply the best practices and lessons learned from the fellow attendees (plus fresh insights from the program) to your organization’s specific short and long-term challenge.

Shared lessons, a take-home toolkit and a new community

Designed to give fresh insights around the biggest themes in innovation and leadership, you’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, provided with space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other open-minded individuals and given new tools, practices and prompts to take back to the office and use straight away.

These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our team and partners. They include a mix of lecture, self-reflection, conversation and group activity.

We look forward to a stimulating day together and hope we see you there!

Lessons From Silicon Valley

April 2018


We brought together a curated group of 25 extraordinary thinkers and doers for a hands-on and open dialogue around how innovation is disrupting your business and what is holding you back from transformative change.

Memorable and distinctive, our events prompt personal reflection and storytelling, placing an emphasis on connecting through our own experiences, today’s big questions and lessons learned. 

Brought to you in partnership with Lab351, the Globe and Mail Innovation Lab, a place for employees to bring great ideas that can either solve business problems or potentially create new lines of business. 

This session was held April 24th, 2018 in Toronto, ON.
