Description

The Ted Rogers Leadership Centre is pleased to present Betty-Ann Heggie, as part of its ongoing Business Ethics Speakers' Series. This event is in collaboration with the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.

Join author, mentor, and former corporate executive Betty-Ann Heggie for this book launch and conversation on Gender Physics - a global theory and practice she developed on rejecting traditional gender roles to achieve personal and professional success. Betty-Ann works with business leaders capture the advantages of both gender attributes for maximum impact and success. Gender Physics is a theory developed by Heggie and based on thirty years of personal observations and experience during her rise to the top of the Canadian business world. Betty-Ann will share how in certain venues or situations or with some audiences, it is best to respond with a more assertive, results-oriented Masculine Energy, while in others a collaborative, relationship-focused Feminine Energy works most effectively.

Admission is free, but seating is limited.

Note: Doors open at 2pm for 2:10 start.

Copies of Betty-Ann Heggie's new book Gender Physics: Unlock the Energy You Never Knew You Had to Get the Results You Want will be availble for sale on-site.

Speaker bio:

At a time when the elevator didn’t quite reach the top floor for women in business, Betty-Ann Heggie made her way to the executive office of PotashCorp, the world’s largest fertilizer company. Her success was always rooted in her genuine self and Gender Physics, a theory she developed based on the balance of Masculine and Feminine Energies she used in the workplace. Her insights earned her unprecedented professional achievement and the respect and recognition of her colleagues, staff, and clients. In 2007, Heggie was inducted into Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women Hall of Fame.

That year, Heggie retired from her executive role, and today, she serves as a corporate director, professional speaker, mentor, author, and philanthropist. A widely recognized thought leader in gender discourse, she has been published in Inc. Magazine, Apple News, and Huffington Post. She currently serves as a director for TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), where she chairs the Philanthropy Committee and initiated their successful “Share Her Journey” program to get more women’s stories told on the silver screen.

Now a far cry from the girl who grew up in the small town of Strasbourg, Saskatchewan — working alongside her parents in the family-owned hotel and pub, serving hamburgers and beer — Heggie is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan and the Senior Executive Program at Columbia Business School. Her mission is to have people give up their attachment to gender and express themselves as individuals.
