The COVID-19 pandemic, and its impact on society, industry, and politics, has highlighted the critical need for strong and courageous leadership. Our business and political leaders have been forced to respond to new and fast-changing situations, and successful leaders have responded by taking calculated risks, implementing innovations, and speeding up decision-making, while also ensuring that societal inequalities are sensitively considered.
We are delighted to welcome one of these transformational leaders, Tamara Vrooman, as our speaker for the 2022 Hycroft Lecture. Tamara is currently CEO of the Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR), Canada’s second busiest airport, a role she assumed just as the pandemic grounded most air travel. Prior to this appointment, Tamara was President & CEO of Vancity, Deputy Minister of Finance for the Province of British Columbia, and Secretary to the Treasury Board, and CEO of the Public Sector Employers’ Council.
Tamara is an expert on the economy, social change, and environmental sustainability, and known in Canada and internationally for her successful implementation of change in complex organizations. In her compelling and inspirational talk, Tamara will provide valuable insights on business and the nature of leadership and share some of the life lessons and experiences that helped propel her to the life she leads today.
