The Women in Aviation Sea to Sky Chapter — which promotes the passion and potential of Women in Aviation through advocacy, education and advancement — is presenting The Spirit of Leadership: A High Tea Adventure along with the Aviation Leadership Foundation. This speaker series is a part of the Aviation Leadership Foundation’s “Tea Talks” program which is inspired by TEDTalks. The event will take place next week in Vancouver where special guests will lead intriguing and insightful sessions at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.


The tea will feature speakers including Jeff Glickman. Mr. Glickman will take participants on a journey of his search for the remains of Amelia Earhart and her aircraft. Our other speakers will engage the audience in their own stories of courage, adventure, and leadership. An opportunity for questions and mingling will follow the presentations. With a vintage aviation theme and all the makings of a proper English afternoon tea, a journey through time will tantalize the taste buds with the stories and spirit of leadership.

Other speakers include Barbara Ross-Denroche, President, Chair and Co-Founder of The Refinery Leadership Partners Inc, and a member of global organizations including Women Presidents Organization, International Women’s Forum and the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs BC.

The event takes place from 2:30pm to 4:30pm (registration and networking starts at 1:30pm) on Tuesday, July 30, 2013. Following the event, attendees are welcome to the Georgia Hotel Rooftop Terrace Reflections Lounge for cocktails and networking.

This will be the perfect afternoon escape for all people who love adventure, high tea, aviation, leadership and/or history. With a focus on adventure, all guests will have the opportunity to connect with other professionals who share a passion for leadership. Tickets are currently available online.
