Speaker series at Okanagan College has leadership focus

The series takes place March 13

There are leaders, and there are those who lead. Do you know the difference, and which one are you?

These are among the questions that will be explored by author and performance coach Christine Patton when she kicks off the OC Speakers Series in Kelowna this month.

Patton’s talk will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13 at the Kelowna Downtown Branch of the Okanagan Regional Library at 1380 Ellis Street.

“I’m interested in what draws us to certain people and why. I’m a big believer that success does not have to involve struggle and hardship. There are ways we can all enhance performance, ignite creativity, polish professionalism and build resilience for enduring productivity and well-being,” said Patton.

We are excited to be hosting this event and look forward to some exciting presentations,” said Phil Ashman, Okanagan College’s regional dean for the Central Okanagan.
