“Doug Mitchell is a distinguished lawyer, committed volunteer and thoughtful philanthropist who has helped many community organizations, but outstanding among these efforts is his long-time support of amateur sport in Canada, and university athletes in particular.” U.B.C. Alumni Award of Achievement, 2012.

In addition to a remarkable legal career, Doug Mitchell’s strategic leadership has shone as Commissioner of the CFL, a Governor of the NHL and Chair of the Alberta Economic Development Authority and the Calgary Airport Authority. As National Co-Chair of Borden Ladner Gervais, Canada’s largest law firm, Mitchell continues the awards he established in 1992, now known as the BLG awards honouring Canada’s top male and female student athletes and providing them a $10,000 scholarship for graduate school. Thanks to Mitchell’s lead donation, the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre enabled UBC to serve as a host venue for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Recently Mitchell and his wife, Lois, co-chaired the 2012 Calgary’s Cultural Capital of Canada programme, another outstanding success!

What are the Mitchell’s leadership strategies? How does one build an extraordinary law firm, become an outstanding community leader and respected philanthropist while also enjoying a happy family life? The answer to even one of these challenges will be inspiring! No doubt, Doug Mitchell will provide several insights!!

Each lunch will enable you to see leadership in action, learn from the best and determine strategies for your own leadership journey.
