The Prince George Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the return of the #TrueNorth Business Development Forum on January 25th, 2021! The event is once again sponsored by LNG Canada. #TrueNorth focuses on providing tools to build a strong and prosperous Northern BC. Given the challenges experienced in 2020, this coming event may be the most important to date! This year’s theme is “Leadership through Recovery”.

What to Expect

This year, the #TrueNorth Business Development Forum will take place virtually from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.  Keynote speakers include David Irvine (a #TrueNorth alum) and Ally Stone, who will present a new program built around the challenges of the pandemic, recovery, team engagement, and personal growth.  Additionally, a panel discussion will feature a number of women in leadership roles and will be moderated by Prince George entrepreneur and mentor, Shauna Harper. Presenters are being added regularly, with unique panels, Q&A sessions and tremendous learning opportunities!
