Léona graduated from Olds College with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Agribusiness and in 2011 was awarded a Canadian Nuffield Scholarship. This enabled her to study succession planning around the world.

She will share her global stories that exemplify how to take unimaginable change, adapt to it and succeed.
