KEYNOTES

Dr. David Williams

Record-breaking Astronaut, Aquanaut & Leadership Expert

A true Canadian hero, Dr. Dave Williams is an emergency room specialist, former hospital CEO, aquanaut, astronaut – and the only non-American to hold a directorship at NASA. He has extensive experience leading organizations where uncontrolled risks can have significant consequences; those lessons are captured in his unique keynote and workshop presentations he shares to inspire today's professionals. In his presentations, Dave addresses topics such as risk management, leadership, resilience, team building and team work, motivation, health and well-being. Discover 'the NASA way' and how you can apply these principles to support your own internal teams, boost creativity and ultimately, serve and inspire those in your municipality!

Dr. Rumeet Billan

Leadership, Emotional Resilience and Mental Health Expert

Dr. Rumeet Billan helps people optimize their potential by building resilience and emotional intelligence. She provides strategies on how to manage mental health challenges in the workplace and at home. Through her interactive, engaging, and informative presentations, Dr. Billan effectively illustrates how companies and organizations can unlock the potential of their teams. The result? Increased productivity and profitability, and healthier workplace and organizational cultures. Dr. Billan earned her PhD from the University of Toronto and is an award-winning learning architect and humanitarian. She led the ground-breaking national research study, The Tallest Poppy, focused on women in the workplace. This survey of 1,500 professionals across Canada found that a shocking 87% of respondents were cut down, attacked, and/or resented by co-workers for their success. Dr. Billan also co-led the Canadian Happiness at Work Study in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association and in 2020, was named one of Canada’s Top 10 Power Women.
