The International Centre

No one can deny that the workplace has changed dramatically in the last decade. The prevalence of mobile devices, ubiquitous internet access, telecommuting and working remotely have arguably improved productivity, but the human side of the equation must not be overlooked – work-life balance, corporate culture and mental wellness continue to be organizational priorities. The New Workplace – this year’s theme – will be explored in depth at Partners in Prevention 2017, Canada’s largest and longest-running health and safety conference and trade show. Partners in Prevention 2017 returns on May 2 and 3, 2017 at The International Centre in Mississauga, Ont.

The conference features two days of celebrated keynote speakers, cutting-edge sessions, workshops and professional development courses. Also included is a busy trade show with over 410 booths highlighting the latest in market trends, workplace products and services, and interactive experiences for the health and safety professional.

Celebrated keynote speakers will include:
Neil Pasricha, award winning blogger and New York Times best-selling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation: Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything – Neil Pasricha dazzles audiences with ideas and frameworks that promote happiness.
Curt Steinhorst, Distraction Expert – Having spent years studying the impact of tech on human behaviour, Curt Steinhorst is on a mission to help today’s workforce win the battle against digital distractions.
Steven Page, Canadian singer, songwriter and recording artist – Having spent two decades with The Barenaked Ladies, Steven Page is now an outspoken advocate for mental health awareness.
