The Leadership Council

The Leadership Council plays a vital role in shaping the Summit agenda, and organizing the speakers and moderators. We lean on them to educate us on the most pressing challenges and trends found between communities and industry.

What the Leadership Council does:


They help us identify emerging policy issues and provide guidance on a variety of business development challenges affecting Indigenous communities 


They serve as a resource of expertise as questions surrounding specific topics arise and offer a well rounded, wide spectrum vantage point into Indigenous economies


They review the the full proposed agenda ahead of publication to provide any feedback if necessary,  and advise the conference team on who to prioritize as speakers
