The Niagara Community Observatory invites you to join us Tuesday, July 7 for a virtual presentation of our latest policy brief Niagara’s Transportation and Logistics Sector: Becoming a Global Economic Lynchpin, by NCO Director Charles Conteh.
The presentation runs from 9:30 am to 11 am and will be conducted online via Microsoft Teams. A link to the event will be sent out the day before, to all who have registered.
The transportation and logistics (T&L) sector is a strategic economic sector in Niagara given the region’s role as one of the key arteries in Canada’s interprovincial and international trade flows.
As the North American and global economy undergoes earthshaking transformations across several fronts, the fundamental question that Niagara must address is whether it is fully leveraging its assets to not only weather the storms of change but also exploit new and emerging opportunities.
Following in the footsteps of his previous research on the manufacturing, agriculture, and ICT sectors, Dr. Conteh uses industry data provided in partnership with Niagara Economic Development to examine this question, focusing on the trends, strengths, and challenges.
The presentation will be followed by a panelist discussion and open Q&A.
Registration is required through email@example.com

This four-week webinar series will explore ways to move through this unsettling interlude with integrity, confidence, and clinical effectiveness. Each webinar will explore a different topic relevant to both short-term therapy and remote service delivery and will include practical skills that can be implemented immediately.
Week 1: Doing the Best You Can With What You Have: Best Practices in Brief and Remote Counselling
Front-line practitioners all want the best for their clients, but it can be challenging to feel helpful when faced with limited time and resources. This webinar will explore what it takes to be clinically effective regardless of the time available or method of service delivery.
Week 2: Hope: The Key to All Effective Brief Therapy
Practitioners often struggle with how to be clinically effective in brief therapy given the time-limited nature of the interaction. This webinar will invite practitioners to consider hope as the “active ingredient” in Brief Therapy and will discuss how to cultivate hope more intentionally in conversations.
Week 3: The Worries are Real: Managing Anxiety, Disappointment and Uncertainty in Troubled Times
There is no denying that the COVID-19 virus has changed the world as we know it. Worry, fear and grief are all reasonable responses. This webinar will explore how we can honour our client’s difficult emotions while nurturing their resiliency.
Week 4: Mindful Presence in Brief Therapy: Staying Grounded, Compassionate, and Hopeful Before, After, and During Challenging Conversations
Supporting others while managing difficult times ourselves can feel exhausting. This webinar will explore the importance of self-awareness and reflexivity for the practitioner.
