MONTREAL, May 19, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - On May 21 at the International Summit on Trust in Organizations, the Institute for Trust in Organizations (ICO) in collaboration with IPSOS will unveil the names of the Quebecers who made the biggest contribution to building the public's trust in their respective sectors last year.
"We will salute these people at the first International Summit on Trust in Organizations, which will be held in Montreal on May 21 and 22, 2015," explains Donald Riendeau, Chief Executive Officer of the ICO. "The Summit will unveil the trusted personalities Quebecers have chosen as distinguishing themselves in the political, business, information and media sectors as well as in the public, artistic, cultural, philanthropic and social arenas."
The ICO invites business people and heads of organizations to come and meet the individuals who have excelled most in building trust. "It is important in our society today, where trust seems to be eroding year after year, to promote, reinforce, maintain and build trust," adds Mr. Riendeau. "The Summit will not only enable us to learn more on the subject but also to meet and speak with trusted leaders."
Some 15 high-profile speakers will discuss strategies, best practices and leading organizations with respect to building and maintaining trust. Speakers include Minister Robert Poëti, Vanessa Hall, Hervé Sérieyx, Andreas Pohlmann, Rob Peters, Dennis and Michelle Reina, René Rouleau, Michel Nadeau, Denis Gallant, Diane Lemieux, Suzanne Blanchet, Christian Latreille, François Casgrain, Diane Gareau, Caroline Néron, Ève Laurier and Luc Durand.
