SkillsPEI Workforce Day 2023 – Register

Workforce Day 2023 (Tuesday, May 9, 2023) is an opportunity for employers from across Prince Edward Island to come together to collaborate, learn and share experiences that will help strengthen our workforce on Prince Edward Island.

The half-day event will include a dynamic panel discussion aimed at addressing the current state of our workforce and how to navigate environmental and economic challenges.

The event will be anchored by two keynote speakers Tareq Hadhad: founder and CEO of Peace by Chocolate, and Linda Nazareth: Future of Work Expert, Future Trends, Economist and Author.

Tareq was a Syrian refugee and now living his new life with his entrepreneurial family in Canada’s east coast. Tareq was awarded Atlantic Business Magazine’s 30 under 30 Innovators and is guaranteed to offer inspiration to our Island business community and its leaders.

Linda Nazareth is an economist, a futurist and a respected authority on the future of work. As a newspaper columnist and an author, she knows how to frame things in ways that both educate and entertain, and as the Senior Fellow for Economics and Population Change think-tank at the Macdonald Laurier Institute, she knows what she is talking about.

In 2023 she released her new book ” Working it Out: How to Be Ready for the Redefined Future of Work”. She is also the host of Work and the Future, a new podcast that explores trends around the labour force and the workplace.

This event is free to attend and will include a complimentary networking lunch.
