Leadership Waterloo Region to Host Discussion on Trust

First of its kind in Canada, the fireside chat to feature the Right Honourable David Johnston, will be held in a virtual event space.

You can become more worthy of trust. You can spot and encourage this vital quality in others. You can be an instrumental force in restoring trust in your community and country--making them better for yourself and your fellow citizens, and the world better for all.

In today’s landscape of COVID-19 and systemic inequality, trust in one another to build better communities and a better Canada is needed now more than ever. On October 21st, Leadership Waterloo Region (LWR) is relaunching their Visionary Speaker Series and will welcome Right Honourable David Johnston for a fireside chat to discuss his book Trust: 20 Ways to Build a Better Country.

Attendees will not only discover how everyone can play a part in building trust in our community, they will also have the opportunity to engage with one another in a “first-time in Canada” experience.

“If you’re like us, you are craving those connections you make at community events and the opportunity to network with people outside of your bubble.” shared Diane Wiles (’02), CEO of LWR, “We will be hosting this Visionary Speaker Series event in Degy World. Waterloo Region is a community that embraces new opportunities and is often on the forefront of new technology and experiences, and this won’t just be another webinar! It is an event experience like no other and we are simply thrilled to be able to host Mr. Johnston in this virtual space, where networking has no COVID-19 limitations.”

Simply put, Degy World is an immersive virtual event platform. The Degy team have created a new world where guests are fully engaged, create their own personalized avatar and interact as a community. Voice-to-voice conversations along with a text-based chat offer a unique opportunity to connect within the virtual space.

Members from across the community are invited to unite for this important conversation on Trust. In keeping with the tradition of Leadership Waterloo Region learning events, all participants will receive a free digital copy of Mr. Johnston’s book: Trust: Twenty Ways to Build a Better Country.
