New executive director of Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park joins well-known corporate social innovation expert

Katherine Albion, the new executive director of the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park, will speak at the upcoming AGM for the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce on Feb. 28.

Members of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce will welcome two speakers at the organization’s Annual General Meeting to take place on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, at the St. Clair Corporate Centre in downtown Sarnia.

Dr. Katherine Albion, the new executive director of the Western Sarnia Lambton Research Park, and James Temple of PwC Canada, have both confirmed their attendance at the AGM.

Albion was recently appointed to succeed the retiring Tom Strifler in the Research Park position.

Temple is considered one of Canada’s leading voices on corporate social innovation, with his role at PwC providing oversight to ways the firm can embed social, environmental and economic integrity into the fabric of its business.

He has presented workshops at venues such as the World Volunteer Forum and the International Corporate Citizenship Conference and has been featured in articles and videos for TED, the Globe and Mail, Forbes, Strategy Magazine, and Canadian Business.

In 2012, Temple was named one of the world’s top Corporate Social Responsibility practitioners by the Centre for Sustainability and Excellence. He was also an inaugural Notable.ca Young Professional of the Year.

Chamber representatives have said they look forward to being inspired and re-energized when it comes to learning about ways members of the business community can use their skills, voices, and relationships to become catalysts for change.

The AGM will take place in the Gateway Room of the St. Clair Corporate Centre, located at 265 Front St N, Sarnia.
