Taylor s experience as a former diplomat and as an advisor to corporations on issues of political risk, international marketing and strategic accommodation, make his presentations insightful and relevant to a wide variety of audiences. Taylor s service as a diplomat in the Canadian Foreign Service also involved trade development responsibilities in Guatemala, Detroit, and London; foreign-aid-related matters in Pakistan; crisis management in Iran; and as the former Canadian Consul General, the enhancement of Canada s image in New York. Taylor was portrayed by actor Gordon Pinsent in the movie Escape from Iran: The Canadian Caper and, in recognition of the 30th anniversary of the legendary story, by Victor Garber in Argo. Author Robert Wright also detailed the account in his book, Our Man In Tehran. For his work as a diplomat, Taylor received the United States Congressional Gold Medal and the Order of Canada. Since his resignation from the Foreign Service in 1984, Taylor has worked extensively in the private sector. He has served as a board member of a range of companies in Canada, the US, and Mexico, and has provided counselling services to a wide range of clients.

6 Workshops Workshop Streams The conference will feature English and French workshops delivered in three streams: Professional Regulation (PR) Learn about challenges, activities and success of professional regulators as members of the public seek more accountability from them. Acting in the Public Interest (PI) Get a closer look at how the public interest is central to democracy, politics and policy debates, and how to ensure the protection of the public when faced with changing conditions. Effective Practices and Research (EP) Discuss what it takes for educators to improve their practice and keep their teaching relevant and inspiring for students in an ever-changing world. You may attend workshops from all three streams. Thursday, November 6 Workshop Series 1 10:30 a.m. 11:45 a.m. The Future of Regulation Session ID: PR-1EF (English with simultaneous interpretation available) Presenter: Helen Kerr President, KerrSmith Rampant technology advancement, global value shifts and economic disruption are part of the rapidly changing landscape of both the public and private sector. Understanding what might be emerging from unexpected corners allows you to remain resilient and mitigate potential risks, while seeking new opportunities. Join Helen Kerr as she outlines the results of her investigation into the ten-year forward view of trends and drivers of change that are likely to impact professional self-regulation. Her presentation will cover plausible future scenarios that serve as a platform to discuss implications and strategies for your own sector. Will Necessity Become the Mother of Invention? Inter-professional Collaboration by Professional Regulators Session ID: PR-1aE (English) Presenter: Richard Steinecke, LL.B. Senior Partner, Steinecke Maciura LeBlanc Historically professions have been regulated individually by standalone regulatory bodies. Often there is almost no contact between the regulator of the individual and the practitioners employers even when the employer is closely regulated. This siloed approach results in uncoordinated and inconsistent protection for the public. Yet it is extremely difficult to alter the existing system. This presentation examines the challenges of inter-professional collaboration in the education, health and other sectors to identify barriers to change and to offer some modest proposals that address the changing face of regulation.

Yet, I Wish I Could Have Done More : Competing Tensions within the Teaching Profession Session ID: EP-5E (English) Presenter: Troy Hutchings, PhD Research Chair Education, University of Phoenix This session will examine the complexities, vulnerabilities, and competing tensions that are inherent within the teaching profession.

That, however, is starting to change. Dr. Hutchings will discuss the national movement in the United States to develop Inspiring Public Confidence 11
