World-class leader speaks to Loyalist PR

The students of Loyalist PR were honoured to welcome Wilf Wilkinson to our class this morning as the keynote speaker for our Leadership Week.

A member of Rotary International since 1962, Mr. Wilkinson served as the organization's international president from 2007-2008.

He was named to the Order of Canada in 2007 and was awarded the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice medal in 2001 by Pope John Paul II for his service to the Catholic church.

As a chartered accountant, he also founded the local firm of Wilkinson & Company.

As a class, we thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mr. Wilkinson's insights on leadership, and hearing his personal stories of meetings with some of the world's greatest leaders (everyone from presidents and the head of the United Nations to Dolly Parton!).

Thank you for gracing us with your presence today, Mr. Wilkinson. You are truly a leader to look up to.
