As companies grow, one struggle a founder may be faced with is when (and if) to make the transition to the CEO or another C-Suite level role. Their focus may shift from creating an idea and bringing it to life, to building a team of experts around them who can make the vision come to life. This step is not only a change in responsibilities, but also a change in mindset. How do you get out of the day-to-day operations and start to work on the business from more of a strategy, culture, and vision point of view?

We will welcome panelists and attendees in person at Innovation Guelph for coffee, networking, and a continental breakfast. If you are unable to join in person, there will be an opportunity to participate in the panel discussion through Zoom webinar.


  • Morgan Mitchell // Founder & CEO, Green Goddess Fromagerie
  • Jennifer Prendergast // Co-Founder & CEO, The Expert Talk
  • Sean Thompson // CEO, Co-Founder, Psigryph Inc.
  • Jo Anne Watton // CEO, UTComp Inc.



Start your day off right by tapping into the life and business experience of leaders who know how to make things happen! Lessons from Leaders is an ongoing series of discussion panels to help entrepreneurs get a great start to their day! Join us in person or online to hear from our panel of highly successful business leaders as they share their experiences and answer your questions about this month's topic.
