The CEOs of the BC Safety Charter will be hosting their 2013 Roundtable Conference on May 2. The event will have both Trevor Linden and W. Brett Wilson as speakers.
The conference is expected to be the largest conference yet held as the BC Safety Charter initiative gains momentum after a very successful Roundtable held November 29 at the Terminal City Club in Vancouver.
The 2012 Roundtable Roundtable drew a record number of companies and attendees who were treated to speakers such as Dr. Graham Lowe, President of The Graham Lowe Group Inc., and Duncan Hawthorne, CEO of Bruce Power.
The May 2 Conference will be a full day event and is expected to be well attended as more businesses join the BC Safety Charter initiative.
The day has been organized in such a way as to provide the maximum number of networking chances and opportunities to meet with our speakers and special guests.
From a start of 22 inaugural signatories in November of 2011 the BC Safety Charter now has, effective April 4, 2013 65 signed members and many more are expected by the May 2nd event.
