The London Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) and Ivey Executive Education have established a partnership to build leadership talent in London, Ontario.

The London Free Press spoke with Kapil Lakhotia, LEDC's chief executive.

"We know workforce development is the No. 1 problem for employers and tech, food processing and other sectors all have concerns about talent development, attraction and retention," said Lakhotia.

“There is an existing gap in leadership and management talent at London companies. Ivey has serious expertise in leadership talent and we hope this helps London companies grow its talent base.”

Together, Ivey Executive Education and LEDC have launched one-day workshops to align what Ivey teaches with what skills businesses need on the job. The first workshop is a one-day program for entrepreneurs about how to cope with the fast pace of change, especially in the tech sector. Co-taught by Ivey professor Andreas Schotter and industry expert Paul Kinsinger, this workshop takes place at the Spencer Leadership Centre on October 11, 2017.
