Fourth Annual Chair's Dinner, featuring Lorraine Mitchelmore, Co-Chair, Smart Prosperity
The Business Council of British Columbia hosted a sold out crowd for the fourth annual Chair’s Dinner on Monday, June 13th. It was a pleasure to have so many of our members join us to celebrate the Business Council’s work over the past 50 years and honor some of the province's finest businesses and business leaders for their ongoing contributions to the Council.
Our keynote speaker, Lorraine Mitchelmore, Co-Chair of Smart Prosperity and former President and Country Chair of Shell Canada, shared her aspirations for Canada to regain its position as a competitive and innovative global energy leader. Bringing together Canadian leaders from business, think tanks, labour, Indigenous Peoples, youth, and NGO communities, Smart Prosperity aims to harness new thinking to map out and accelerate Canada’s transition to a stronger, cleaner economy in the next decade.Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support: Encana and Mitsubishi's Cutbank Ridge Partnership (Leader Sponsor); Pacific NorthWest LNG (Partner Sponsor), Agricultural Bank of China and Seaspan ULC (Supporting Sponsors).
