The Day of Hope and Leadership

 Our Mission Statement:

To challenge leaders, inspire communities and change lives.


Our Vision:

As leaders, we share our experience, provide inspiration, believing passionately that an engaged business,

community or family, can find their own path to a more meaningful life.



The Day of Hope and Leadership is a unique personal, professional and community development day.  It was created to help equip, develop and motivate leaders to meet the challenges that many of us face today. Through this interactive day, attendees have the opportunity to be inspired by world class speakers and receive practical tools and ideas that can be easily adapted to each attendee’s environment.

The theme for this year’s Day of Hope and Leadership is: Just Lead, It Starts With You and Ends With Others

Everyone that attends the Ajax Convention Centre on September 30th, receives continental breakfast, hot lunch, coffee/tea breaks, an amazing event journal, 6 leadership keynote presentations plus invaluable networking opportunities.  This event will inspire and motivate you for a lifetime!

Our Hope Team consists of: Dan Carter, Joe Stokes, Doug Schneider, Denise Marek, Noel Coppins and Cate Collins, all of whom are outstanding leaders in their fields of leadership expertise.  All of our professional speakers volunteer their time for this incredible event.  Check out their bios!

The Hope Team will share practical insights and tools to help you and your team develop strong leadership skills and acquire the knowledge that you need to succeed in today’s constantly changing environment.  This is an excellent team building and development opportunity.  For only $1999, your organization can send 10 staff members for a day of leadership development and training like no other.  Individual tickets are only $225.

There is a strong philanthropic focus also; proceeds raised from the Day of Hope and Leadership are directed towards community development programs.  The annual event in Durham Region supports the many free programs run in the Hope Centre of Learning and Oshawa Community Health Centre.
