One day can change everything. Following tremendous feedback from participants, we're delighted to announce that next June we will be hosting Fast Forward again. Fast Forward 2018 will take place on Thursday June 14 at the stunning Koerner Hall at Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music, widely recognized as one of North America’s top venues. The day will start with inspiring talks from illustrious Canadians Rick Mercer and Peter Mansbridge followed by dynamic panel discussions with some of the leading voices in our industry. We'll let you know who they are soon.
Dubbed ‘Inspiring Talks, Real Solutions’, Fast Forward 2018 will once again focus on the key issues driving rapid change in our industry including changing weather patterns, broker distribution, customer expectations, technology and the future broker. Building on the launch of Padlock, Fibaro and the CSIO digital pink slip, the afternoon discussions will each end with more real solutions from Gore Mutual to help brokers compete in the modern market. Register for your chance to attend below.
An award-winning broadcaster and author, Rick Mercer is one of the country’s most popular comics and a political satirist who knows exactly what matters to regular Canadians. Known as “Canada’s Unofficial Opposition,” he’s never been one to shy away from hot button topics. Expect more of the same at Fast Forward as Mercer shares his unique insights about our ever-changing world.
One of Canada’s most respected and recognizable figures, Mansbridge’s sterling career at the CBC is without precedent.

Col. Chris Hadfield has been called “the most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong.” The first Canadian to command the International Space Station, he used social media to make outer space accessible to millions renewing interest in his industry – something brokers are working hard to do in their own industry. He wowed our audience with the lessons about change, leadership, teamwork, collaboration and technology.
An award-winning scientist, broadcaster and author, Dr. David Suzuki is one of the world’s most acclaimed and influential environmentalists. Throughout his career, he has raised public consciousness about environmental issues. He gave us a compelling and sometimes frightening look at the state of our environment – it continues to be one of the most important topics for our industry and the entire planet with severe weather on the rise.
An author, media commentator and consultant, Jim Carroll is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading global futurists on trends and innovation.
