Chapter Meeting - LEAP to Great Heights with Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the Pecaut Centre


PMI Toronto Chapter Meetings = Excellent networking opportunities!

The Chapter Meetings provide plenty of time for networking, before and after the main presentation, so come with business cards and network with your peers!


Learn how to effectively use your skills to do good, better by bringing the project management toolkit into the social sector. In Canada, over 200,000 social ventures face a number of unique challenges in the sector, including duplication and under-investment in human capital. Pro bono opportunities allow you to leverage your career to drive impact and discover new models to marry purpose and profit.

LEAP | Pecaut Centre for Social Impact selects and supports the highest-potential social ventures to grow to scale. BCG has been a key partner since LEAP’s inception and is committed to increasing total societal value.
