BOLD SOLUTIONS

New Ideas, Bold Solutions, and Exploration.

This is what The Future of Innovation is.

 

This annual RBC  Leadership conference, hosted by the J. Herbert Smith Centre, sparks new conversations about cutting-edge solutions for problems that are persistent throughout Canada and the world.

This year we're giving you the opportunity to connect virtually with thought leaders, businesses, and students about the ideas that will help us adapt and overcome the new challenges we are facing globally.

We have brought speakers from around the world to help enrich the community and foster discovery. The goal is to explore the frontiers of innovation and insight inspiration while we discuss the challenges and opportunities around trans-border migration and economies moving into 2021.
