Keynote Speaker: Kirstine Stewart, Founding Head of Twitter Canada
How do you build innovative corporate culture from the ground up? You better ask Kirstine Stewart, who's worked at some of the most innovative corporations in the world. As Founding Head of Twitter Canada, Kirstine Stewart was responsible for building the Canadian market. And as Twitter’s VP, North American Media Partnerships, she was charged with developing deals with TV, sports, and music partners across the continent. She was previously Executive Vice-President of CBC English Services, where she commissioned the greatest number of Canadian content hours the CBC has ever had in prime time. She helped lead it to some of its biggest ratings in history, all while maintaining and strengthening its public broadcasting mandate. Her book Our Turn: Time for a New Kind of Leader, on women leaders in a time of new opportunities, was published in the fall of 2015. The old ideas of hierarchy in business are quickly becoming outmoded and Kirstine's advice at MaRS Verge will prepare you for building a positive, modern and innovative company culture.
