Details for Applicants and Participants

Applications are due by April 16, 2018 for the June 10-15, 2018 Institute. The fee of $2,000 US (early bird rate due 4/2) or $2,250 US (regular rate beginning 4/3) includes accommodations and meals for 5 nights and all materials.

Institute Highlights:

The class is limited to a select group of emerging leaders offering opportunity for collaboration and an enduring network of support. Approximately 30 people will be accepted, with participation limited to one person per organization.  

A fair amount of preparation work is required. Participants will be asked to read several books, to submit a personal leadership challenge, and to take a 360 degree assessment of leadership skills prior to the Leadership Institute.  

The Institute will be held at Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre, 551 Windermere Rd, London, ON N5X 2T1. Travel is at the expense of the participant. Hotel accommodation for 5 nights, arriving Sunday, June 10, will be coordinated by Kristen Loomis, please do not contact Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre directly about accommodations. Once you are accepted we will be in touch about your accommodations.

The Ontario Leadership Institute will begin early Sunday evening with a welcome dinner and will end before noon on Friday.  

Cancellations will be accepted only until three weeks before the start date of the Institute. Prior to that date, cancellations must be made in writing (e-mail is acceptable, please confirm that we have received) and funds will be returned, minus a $165 processing fee. There will be no refunds after that date and, if an intended participant cancels after that date or is a no-show, the full registration fee will still be owed. We regret that we cannot offer refunds for late cancellations or no shows, however, if your agency would like to substitute another appropriate individual, this can be done with prior approval but may include a fee.
