Expert on Trust-Based Leadership, Influence and Performance
How can leaders bring teams together to achieve extraordinary results? What do all great organizations have in common, whether they realize it or not? How do we consistently and effectively get people to listen, follow, buy-in, and take the next step? Heath Slawner shows audiences that trust and purpose – based on a palpable concern for others – are what’s at the centre of it all. When we’re clear about why we’re here, where we’re going, who we serve, and how we’re getting there, people start to feel valued and fulfilled. As a consequence, we will naturally seek out ways to collaborate, execute and bring bold visions to reality.
Heath’s work lies at the intersection of leadership, influence, and trust. Through in-depth and dynamic presentations, he shows audiences how to leverage proven strategies to strengthen relationships, drive performance, and achieve outstanding results. He shares his insights with individuals and teams at leading organizations around the world, including the United Nations, and some of Canada’s most iconic companies, such as Bell, Canadian Tire, and Loblaws, to name just a few.
Boasting exceptional facilitation skills and a passion for helping people learn and apply new skills, Heath combines intelligence, empathy, and conscientiousness to ensure valuable and memorable experiences for all audiences.
Heath earned his undergraduate business degree from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout his career, he has continually contributed to his community, both nationally and internationally. He is also a Board and Executive Committee Member of Equitas – International Centre for Human Rights Education, whose mission is to help build a global culture of human rights through education.
