On September 20, 2022, the Business Council of British Columbia hosted a meaningful discussion with a selection of CEOs who contributed to the Unprecedented: Canada's Top CEOs on Leadership During COVID-19, a collection of exclusive, first-person stories from 29 chief executives at iconic Canadian companies through the early days of the pandemic.

Moderated by Carole Taylor, in conversation with Susan Senecal, of A&W, Scott Thomson, of Finning, and Charles Brown, of Lifelabs, the speakers shared their personal experiences and learnings during the pandemic. The panel spoke of their perspectives on the importance of values, teamwork, decision making with imperfect information, and how they supported people, protected capital and collaborated with partners.
