Special Breakfast with Don Van Meer
THE POWER OF ENGAGEMENT
Integrating business, life and faith
Don Van Meer is a Chartered Accountant by background and worked in public accounting for five years before moving to industry and into senior leadership positions in finance and administration. He joined Thomson Reuters in 1987 and served as President and CEO of Carswell, a Thomson Reuters business for nineteen years before retiring in 2015.
Carswell is the Canadian market leader in providing integrated information solutions to legal, tax and business professionals. Don led his company through a time of significant transition and unprecedented growth in technology that completely changed the way business was done.
Change is inevitable in life and in business. How can a leader keep a team engaged in the face of change? Don was not only successful in casting a new vision and expanding the scope of the business, he was able to harness the hearts and minds of his employees to earn recognition as one of “The Best Workplaces in Canada”.
The power of engagement has also transformed Don’s personal life. Hear how an engaged relationship with God helped Don realize the meaning of true success.
