Our Leader Lunch series is an intimate gathering of senior local Communication leaders. Hosted at the posh Board Room on the lower level of Gotham Steakhouse in downtown Vancouver. Tickets limited to the first 18 registrants.


You’re a Communication professional in a leadership position, hoping to connect and swap stories with your IABC peers.


Escape work for a few hours to enjoy a two-course meal (and a glass of wine, if you so desire) and engage in a lively guided discussion with other experienced Communication professionals over lunch. Then pop back to work to finish your day with renewed inspiration.


You mastered the fundamentals of Communication strategy some time ago and, now, you’re ready to trade solutions to your everyday leadership challenges with other seasoned pros. Lunch at Gotham is just the civilized environment you need to find new solutions and make a few new friends in the field.

This Month’s Theme & Facilitator

Leadership: What does it take to build a high-performing Communication team? How can you build credibility for the Comms function within your organization? How can you take your team from tactical order-takers to strategic advisors?

Kristin Linklater, SCMP, Executive Director of Communications & Marketing at Simon Fraser University, will kick off the conversation by asking questions and sharing the war stories and transformational lessons she’s gleaned from decades in the profession. Then, we’ll use our combined experiences and brainpower to share insights to solve each other’s most pressing challenges.
