Invitation to our first BDC Alumni retreat

How leaders will shape or be shaped by tomorrow Montreal, Quebec

BDC Alumni Retreat

BDC Alumni is an executive program for CEOs of the Growth Driver Program (GDP) who completed the Leadership Retreats and want to pursue their development journey as well as stay connected to their GDP peers. This program will include two annual gatherings, local events and other opportunities to exchange with GDP alumni. After this first retreat, CEOs will register annually for the program.

The theme of the first BDC Alumni Retreat will be tomorrow, including:

  • Leadership and talent: Acquiring the skills to stay relevant in the future
  • Digitalization and new technologies: Discovering how technology such as artificial intelligence will impact your industry and fuel business growth
