The Reos Partners co-founder will visit Vancouver for a keynote speech

If you want to make a difference as a leader, forget what you know about collaboration—and learn to get along with folks you might otherwise avoid. On October 12 at SFU Harbour Centre, best-selling author Adam Kahane delivers a keynote speech based on his new book, Collaborating With the Enemy: How to Work With People You Don’t Agree With or Like or Trust. Based in Cape Town and Montreal, Kahane is co-founder of Reos Partners, a social enterprise that helps people work together to confront complex challenges. During his 25-year international career, he’s found that conventional collaboration—focused on agreement, certainty and control—is becoming obsolete.

Tickets for the event, presented by SFU Innovates and Radius SFU, the university’s social innovation lab and venture incubator, are $20. To order, click here.
