Have big ideas but little time? Learn from light case studies led by Canadian leaders

Canada: Theory Meets Practice is all about leadership in action — in more ways than one. Through light case studies, industry leaders demonstrate their expertise on topics of national importance. And students like you contribute to the cause by asking questions, sharing ideas and providing potential solutions.

In this series, it’s an opportunity for guest leaders to share a problem they had to solve and provide context for the problem. Then, you and a small group of your peers have 5–10 minutes to discuss how you would start to solve the problem. Next, depending on the guest leader, they may follow up by having groups compare thoughts, sharing how they solved the problem, leading you through more rounds of problem-solving or a combination of these options.

  • It’s a masterclass featuring leaders who are experts in their field.
  • Find out which leadership skills the experts use — and start developing them yourself.
  • Gain hands-on experience. Work with a small group of students to address issues of national importance.
  • Prepare to take action with the What Next? Mini-Fair. Discover resources to help you get started.
  • Get a sneak preview of the Wilson Leadership Scholar Award experience. Learn all about it and get tips to prepare your application.
  • Enter draws to win a pair of AirPods Pro (or Android equivalent) and other swag.
