What can our elected officials do today to ensure the vibrancy of our communities in the future? George Cuff understands that we must have creative leaders who are focused on the “where to from here” as much as the “here and now.” George has been described by monthly municipal magazine, Municipal World, as the “governance guru” of Canada. He has been involved with local government since the 1970s, with experience at the administrative level and as an elected official, having served four terms as the Mayor of Spruce Grove, Alberta. George’s consulting firm, George B. Cuff & Associates, provides specialized consulting services to the public sector, including governance reviews, trouble-shooting, and training of elected officials. The catchphrase “getting Cuffed” has even been adopted to describe his candid style of advisory services. George will describe the importance of creative leadership; outline the key challenges facing local government today; and explain how innovative professionals can play a role.
