On behalf of City Council and the people of Edmonton, Alberta’s Capital City, I welcome everyone to Experience: LEAP.
This one-day event will help inspire individuals to rise to new challenges both personally and professionally. It brings together five storytellers to share their experiences and ideas on creating change, finding success and more. Creating opportunities for individuals to expand their horizons provides a catalyst for making our communities brighter, more collaborative and hopeful places to live.
I thank the Project Shine organizers for putting together this event. The unique knowledge and enthusiasm you offer helps make Edmonton a healthier and more vibrant city.
