If you are a young leader in the transportation industry, the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) and their Young Leaders Group (YLG) has an excellent opportunity for networking and education taking place on September 14th, 2017 at Sleeman Breweries in Guelph. The half day event features 2 presentations by industry veterans Kim Richardson (President of KRTS), and Mike Millian (President of PMTC) and a very exciting leadership development session presented by renowned leadership training experts EaglesFlight out of Guelph ON. A more detailed breakdown on the topics is covered below. Should you be interested in attending the event, or know of a young leader who would benefit from attending, feel free to reach out to myself for more information, or email Vanessa Cox at info@pmtc.com to register.

A presentation on the value of networking by Kim Richardson, President of KRTS

In this session, Kim Richardson will provide valuable insight on how to properly network and reach out to a broad array of people in your industry. Kim will discuss his networking techniques and how they have helped him build connections over the years, both business and personal. Kim is well known for having one of the largest “rolodex’s” in the industry, and many of these contacts have been gained through networking over his 30+ years in transportation.

 

A career story by Mike Millian, President of the PMTC

In this session, moderated by Kim Richardson, Mike Millian will share the story of his path through the transportation industry, from the time he entered as a driver at the age of 18 to his current role as President of the PMTC. Mike will discuss the various positions he has held in his 27 years, what his plans were when he entered the industry, how he got where he is today, and where he plans to go in the future. Attendees will be given the opportunity to ask both Kim and Mike questions during a Q&A session after Mike’s career story.

 

A presentation on Influencing Others provided by Eagle’s Flight (www.eaglesflight.com)

In this session, a professional course facilitator from Eagle’s Flight will cover the proper techniques of influencing and the three key parts to the influencing model; The Right Mindset, The Right Skill, and The Right Approach. Leaders need to know how to exert influence over others, regardless of whether they have management responsibility or not. This session is a great opportunity for future leaders to learn how to influence people at all levels of an organization for the mutual good of both parties.

 

After the presentations, the YLG Executive Team will discuss an exciting new long-term, in-depth educational program that will be coming soon for the benefit of young leaders.

 

Lunch and refreshments will be provided from 11:30am until 12:30pm.

  • PMTC member $25
  • Non-member $50

This seminar is being offered as part of the YLG’s mission to bring value to the next generation through education, discussions and networking. We’d love to see you there. Get out! Get involved! Get inspired!
