CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 12, 2014) - Editors note: There is one photo accompanying this press release.

Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney will speak at the SOS Children's Villages Leadership Luncheon on Friday, September 12th, 2014. At the Luncheon, Calgary's business leaders and the public will hear Mr. Mulroney speak on "Leadership in Uncertain Times".

Mike Jackson, Managing Director of Scotia Capital and a Board Director for SOS Children's Villages says, "This event provides the leadership of Calgary's business community to hear about leadership from an important figure in Canadian politics while at the same time providing an opportunity to support a charity that seeks to protect the world's most vulnerable children."

Founded in 1949, SOS Children's Villages provides children who have been orphaned and abandoned with a caring, loving and secure family environment where basic needs for food, health, shelter and education are met. Over one million children in 133 countries benefit from the agency's commitment to "a loving home for every child."

"Brian Mulroney is a distinguished world leader whose leadership hastened the end of Apartheid in South Africa and his economic policies provided the impetus for Canada's impressive economic performance today," notes Jennie Moushos, Senior Vice President Western Division of Intact Insurance Company and a Board Director for SOS Children's Villages. "He is uniquely positioned to speak about leadership in uncertain times."

"This luncheon provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear Mr. Mulroney speak to Calgary's business leaders. It's also a wonderful way to support SOS Children's Villages lifesaving work."

Mr. Mulroney was Prime Minister from 1984-1993. He was the first Canadian Prime Minister in 35 years to win successive majority governments and the first Conservative Prime Minister to do so in 100 years.
