Orangeville, Ontario Canada (PressExposure) September 20, 2011 -- "Successful leaders are visionaries, inspire others, challenge the status quo, manage risk, explore new ways of doing things and encourage creativity." says Randy Adamkowski, Senior Partner at Grant Thornton LLP and a motorcyclist. "These are also the traits of riders. We have hosted annual rides for the past three years. This year, we are pleased to present this event which will go even further to leverage the unique bond amongst bikers to build strong, mutually beneficial business relationships.
"Anyone who rides a motorcycle knows its attraction and propensity to build immediate, lasting connections." adds Liz Jansen, President of Trillium Motorcycle Tours & Events, seasoned rider and former Human Resources Professional. "Intentionally introducing that energy into a professional setting with senior leaders creates a synergy that doesn't exist elsewhere. The potential for a ripple effect and driving positive change is enormous."
"Ironically, while leadership pundits have dissected Fortune 500 corporations to understand why they're successful," Jansen continues, "a past-time based on the need for adventure, freedom and self-expression breeds leaders with qualities sought by best-in-class organizations worldwide."
Attendees can expect engaging presentations on Leadership and Branding, delivered respectively by Scott Kress, accomplished mountaineer and President of Summit Training and Pat Gonsalves, Account Executive for Corus Entertainment.
