Bob Gainey and Dr. Scot McFadden will present their discussion on 'Effective Leadership and what it takes to build a championship team' on Wednesday, October 13 at 7:30 a.m. at the Caboto Club.

Scot, a former Windsorite, University of Windsor graduate, and a Lancer hockey goalie, has worked with thousands of executives, managers, professionals, and athletes in both business and sports.
