You(th) Lead Conference: Spring 2023

On Saturday, April 22nd, 2023, we had our 3rd You(th) Lead Conference at Hotel X Toronto. This amazing event brought together industry executives to empower future leaders. 100 post-secondary students received valuable career advice from 80 executives from 53 companies.

The day started with a warm welcome by our founders, Diane and Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons, followed by a speed networking session. Throughout 6 rounds of speed mentorship, executive mentors shared their experiences and wisdom with the youth. Students and executives were given the opportunity to continue their conversations during the power-hour networking lunch.

The day ended with two breakout sessions with our special guests from the entertainment industry: Jesse Jones,Tyrone Edwards, Duane "D.O." Gibson”, Miranda Anthistle, Kevin Bourne, and Tracy Tong, who happily shared their stories and inspired our youth.
