As a five-time World and Olympic track champion, Donovan Bailey knows what it takes to achieve success: drive, resilience, heart, and the support of positive role models. As a businessman, Donovan has adopted that same winning formula to build his corporate career.

On September 19, Donovan will discuss his own experiences in striving for gold, both on the track and in the boardroom and speak about the role that mentors and role models have played in his life.

Whether you're an athlete, or a Fortune 500 Executive, you've relied on mentors to help you succeed. That support is often lacking in the lives of Canadian children. As the 2005/06 celebrity spokesperson for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, Donovan Bailey is committed to helping our children, tomorrow's leaders, achieve gold in life. He'll talk about how public and private organizations can help, by serving as mentors and role models to our youth.

Donovan will be available for questions following his speech - approx. 1:45 PM.
