Trevor Linden comes to Hope on Oct. 24

The former NHL star will be the keynote speaker at a Chamber event

Trevor Linden comes to Hope on Oct. 24.

Trevor Linden is coming to Hope next week to talk about the importance of teamwork and leadership.

The evening, hosted by the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce, will include a catered dinner, keynote speech and photo opportunity with the former professional hockey player.

“What I hope people get out of it is how essential teamwork and leadership are to running a successful enterprise, whether it be a local non-profit or a small business,” said Chamber president Glen Ogren.

“Even if there is only one of you, there are suppliers and support that need to work together to realize a successful business.”

Linden will share stories and tips on leadership and strategies for success. Some of the themes he’ll touch on are goal setting, team building and creating a positive culture, all woven around some hockey-related stories.

“I try and make the connection between my life in hockey and my life after hockey, and how many of the lessons I learned at the rink or in the dressing room are no different than what I’ve experienced in the business world after hockey,” said Linden.

“I do a lot of corporate speaking where I engage employees and challenge them on different ways to look at problems, how to tackle the goals they’ve set out for themselves and how to build a good team. Ultimately, we’re all part of teams and work within that type of structure.”

The evening with Trevor Linden is sponsored by Black Press, Hope Brewing Co, Kinder Morgan, StarFM and Nestle Waters.

The event runs from 5:30-9:30 p.m. at the Hope Legion on Oct. 24. The deadline for purchasing tickets is Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 5 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online at hopechamber.net or at the Chamber office, located at 419 Wallace St.
