'Connecting the Dots'

Over the past six years, Philanthropy Forum has brought Greater Peterborough’s non-profit sector together for professional development and networking, with workshops covering everything from volunteer recruitment to donor retention, and presentations from some of Canada’s top talent, from Rick Mercer to David Love. We have made new connections through great conversations with the dynamic and diverse people who make up our local non-profit sector, and together we have been working collectively to strengthen the charitable organizations in our community.

Philanthropy Forum 2016 will include two days of programming, festival-style, in downtown Peterborough, allowing for more opportunities for networking, longer workshop sessions for in-depth learning, and some of the best speakers to be found – both locally and beyond our community. In 2015, over 200 people came together at 17 sessions during the conference.

Philanthropy Forum is looking for partners! There are 3 great opportunities to be a part of this incredible event! More information can be found here

 

Announcing the 2016 Philanthropy Forum Keynote speaker, Dr. Roberta Bondar of the Roberta Bondar Foundation!

A cross-discipline thought leader with ground-breaking insights on the environment, innovation, discovery and leadership, Dr. Roberta Bondar is one of North America's most sought-after and respected presenters.

Dr. Bondar draws on her remarkable depth of expertise as an astronaut, physician, scientific researcher, photographer, author, environment interpreter, and team leader to stimulate, motivate, educate, and inspire.

By customizing each speech and keynote, Dr. Bondar brings added value with her maturity, wisdom gained from "in the trenches" life experiences, broad educational background, and depth of personality. This unique combination will ensure that any event will be extraordinary.

 

2016 Philanthropy Forum Speakers

Stephane Grenier is a former member of the Canadian Military who retired as a Lieutenant Colonel after serving for just over 29 years.

In hopes of challenging society’s traditional outlook regarding mental health, Grenier has spent much of his career redefining how workplaces and individuals should care for and support those affected by mental health problems. By developing, implementing, and managing peer based programs aimed at reducing stigma, Grenier builds understanding of how to deal with the fast growing realities hindering today’s brain based economy.

His non clinical approach offers simple and pragmatic ways of giving purpose to people's experience and allows organizations to start down the path of systemic wellness and re-humanized workplaces where mental health stigma is no longer a barrier to recovery.
