The Great One is coming to Lethbridge to inspire great leaders

Posted on : Monday, August 18, 2014


Teamworks Training Institute, Select People Solutions and ENMAX Centre are thrilled to announce that they will be co-hosts of Greatness in Leadership, a Management Development Day. 


On October 7th 2014 the ENMAX Centre will be filled with people from across the province eager to hear from many world class leaders like Disney U’s founder Doug Lipp and Gabrielle Scrimshaw, named the 2013 First Nations Youth Achiever by Indspire


Topping off the day will be a special appearance by number 99, Wayne Gretzky.  Gretzky will speak about his experience as the captain of the Oilers for their four Stanley Cup Championships and his many hockey and business experiences since then.


Leadership has many facets, as the speakers will display, and Ryan Miller, CEO of Teamwork Training Ltd., hopes that business people and young people will come to hear Gretzky, Lipp, and Scrimshaw so they can see their own leadership potential, “Gretzky is a great example of leadership because as much as he is a tremendous player he also needed a team with him that was full of different types of leaders like Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, Paul Coffey, and Grant Fuhr.  No one does it alone and these speakers will speak to the business community, students, and young people with one message: build a winning team by building great leaders.”


Miller is extremely excited about the October 7th conference and hopes to see more than 600 people attend.  “The idea has been in the works for a couple of years. Wayne is very difficult to get. We are now excited to finally launch it in connection with our 15th Anniversary. Teamworks’ goal is to bring world-class training to Southern Alberta, highlighting Lethbridge as a first class place to live, work, and do business. This event, featuring Mr. Gretzky and Doug Lipp, definitely demonstrates that goal.


ENMAX Centre General Manager Kim Gallucci echoed Miller’s enthusiasm for the event: “The opportunity to bring a legendary player like Gretzky to Lethbridge is a thrill for the whole organization. Wayne not only represents a tremendous hockey player but also an incredible team player and his business ventures post-hockey speak to his capacity to be a leader on and off the ice.”
