To change the small things, we change what we know; to change the big things, we change what we believe.
We are living in a complex, ever-changing world, that is requiring us to address "wicked problems" with an unprecedented urgency. To be able to rise to solve our most pressing societal challenges, we can't rely on the tools we've always used.
Presented by the League of Intrapreneurs Canada, Miki will facilitate Learning to Unlearn, an opening workshop that helps participants "unlearn" so that they can develop new ways of addressing complex issues. Unlearning is about changing our conception of how the world works and could work. Participants will learn new ways of seeing the world for all its possibilities, challenge their long-held beliefs, and learn how to "unstick" their thinking for transformational change.

Reform shifted licensing from a national to a local level, provided clear and focused licensing standards, and tools to upgrade existing venues into a more modern system. Though met with resistance and challenges, thought leaders like Paul Davies established a framework to shift from a venue focus to a town centre focus of nighttime economy management.
As co-creator of the Purple Flag Paul Davies began a movement to empower local leaders and he continues today by advising the London Nighttime Commission. Paul will provide background and lessons learned on:

Concierge governing is a guiding principle for Kathie Durbin in her role as a regulator. She began her involvement with RHI in the late 1990s and over the years, earned national recognition for her progressive approach to working with on-premise business applicants and operators in understanding their responsibilities to the public and their peers in selling and serving alcoholic beverages. Her approach to application review encourages future operators to think through all elements of their business, from responsible service to neighbor relations. Underlying her approach involves building a Safety Alliance of key compliance agencies with supportive inspection procedures to guide new operators and get at-risk operators back on track. Kathie will share insights gained and success in advocating to modernize the alcohol regulatory process. Takeaways:
