Moving at the Speed of Trust: Sky Bridges and Tom Bryk in Conversation

JOIN US ON APRIL 19TH, 2023 IN-PERSON FOR A SPECIAL PRESENTATION FROM WINNIPEG’S LEADING CHARITABLE FOUNDATION!
 
What happens when your foundation is offered an unexpected gift? Not just any gift, but an unprecedented, transformational gift -the largest ever made to a Canadian charity by an individual. 
 
When Sky Bridges stepped into the role of CEO two years ago, he wasn’t expecting this. When Tom Bryk stepped up to Chair of the Board soon after, he wasn’t expecting this either. There was gratitude, elation, and a few other feelings that come up when there’s no road map or guidelines for an unprecedented situation. “We had to deal with something we have never dealt with before. Actually, no other organization in Canada has ever dealt with this!”
 
While your board might not get this unexpected gift, you will likely face something you have never dealt with before. Sky and Tom have invaluable insights to offer – a road map for decision making while building on a foundation of trust.
 
What guides the board and CEO of a foundation?
A deep respect and commitment for process, an openness to learn, and, above all, trust. Without trust it couldn’t happen.
 
First, there is the enormous trust that the late Miriam Bergen had in The Winnipeg Foundation in bequeathing unrestricted funds that represented her and her family’s life’s work. Responding to that generosity meant learning and a deep dive into governance principles. Secondly, and most importantly, it took enormous trust between a new CEO and a new Chair. You’ve heard about moving at the speed of trust. This was trust building at high speed!
 
Join us on April 19th at the Manitoba Club for this unique and informative discussion with Tom Bryk (Chair) and Sky Bridges (CEO) of the Winnipeg Foundation.
