Thumb MBA Leadership Day

On August 2, the Ian O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership will host Ivey MBA Leadership Day, where we will dedicate the day to the development of our students as leaders. The MBA class will have the opportunity to have a first-hand look at the development of good leadership from some of Canada’s most respected practitioners.   

The day will begin with a panel of leaders representing a broad range of perspectives. The panel session will be led by Ivey Professor Gerard Seijts, Executive Director of the Leadership Institute and author of the book Good Leaders Learn: Lessons from Lifetimes of Leadership and co-author of Developing Leadership Character. The panel discussion focuses on the learning that happens to good leaders throughout their lives – the experiences and influences that enable leaders to know what to do, how to act and how to lead during tumultuous and trying times. Three proven leaders will participate in the panel:

Thomas d’Aquino, B.A., J.D., LL.M., LL.D.
Chairman and Chief Executive, Intercounsel Ltd.

Jon Hantho, MBA ‘89
Principal, Janus Advisory Services

The day will be brought to a close with our keynote speaker, accomplished leader, Elyse Allan. Elyse is the President and Chief Executive Officer of GE Canada and Vice President GE.
