Spring Forward Luncheon

In 2012, Jerry Grandey (retired President and CEO, Cameco Corporation) announced a $1 million gift to the Edwards School of Business. The gift—a combined donation from Jerry and Tina Grandey and a legacy gift from Cameco Corporation—has been put into action through student scholarships, supporting students and faculty involved in community leadership projects, MBA Fireside Chats with prominent leaders, and much more.

The second annual Spring Forward: Leadership Luncheon on Thursday, March 20, 2014 was another result of this initiative. A fireside chat on the topic of “Leading through Change” was host to 230 members of the Saskatoon business community. The event featured Jerry Grandey himself, and the newly announced 2014 Grandey Leadership Honouree Shelley Brown.

Shelley, Partner at Deloitte, is a prominent member of the Canadian business community. A former resident of Saskatoon, she was named one of Canada’s top 100 Most Powerful Women in both 2010 and 2012. This year, she is honored for her leadership efforts and contribution toward the unification of Canada’s accounting designations.

Moderated by Dean Daphne Taras, Edwards School of Business, the luncheon featured a candid discussion on the leadership experiences of Jerry and Shelley. The audience was able to participate as the floor was opened to questions, which enriched the discussion of the second annual Spring Forward: Leadership Luncheon.

Thank-you to everyone who attended and the volunteers/organizers who made the event such a success!
