Conducting Council Orientations 

Council Orientations are not only a legal requirement for most municipalities, they are an opportunity to bring new councils together and lay the foundation to make the most out of their terms.

Our friends in Innisfail hosted a Council Candidate Orientation back in April and our very own Ian was invited to lead the conversation!

Please note it is a longer video and will take a little while to load.

Ian joined host Michael Hubicki  to share some of his 'Ianisms'  including:

  • No strategy survives first contact with reality

  • It's never about what it's about

  • Stop doing stupid stuff

  • You don't know what you don't know

  • Closing on a positive tone
