Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series, Calgary: Susan Brown

  • The Fairmont Palliser 133 9 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 1B4 Canada (map)

The Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series profiles extraordinarily successful women.

Our speakers talk candidly about their careers, and the passion, vision and determination that drive them. They discuss our place in our society and the ethical responsibilities and consequences of our actions.

In relating their lives, you will hear about challenges as well as triumphs; humorous incidents and stories of loss; humbling moments of reflection and inspiring calls to action.

The Famous 5 Foundation’s Leadership Lunches were launched on Oct. 18, 1996 to bring women together to plan the celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the "Persons" Case on Oct. 18, 1999.  In 2004, Enbridge became our title sponsor. The Famous 5 Foundation is proud to continue to partner with Enbridge to present our 14th Annual Speaker Series featuring five dynamic and engaging women.
