Our success as a city relies significantly on the leadership of individuals and organizations who push the economy forward with their efforts. Through a nomination process, the editorial team at Edify wants you to identify the Edmonton residents and organizations who exemplify the energy, focus, innovation and creative thinking that builds this city.
The Winter 2022 issue of Edify will honour the contributions, profile the people and tell the stories of those who are contributing to our city’s economy and business community, with a subsequent event in Jan/Feb to bring together business leaders, entrepreneurs, community members and other influential Edmontonians.
The annual Edifier awards will honour three individuals and up to 10 organizations. This year, Edify introduces the Business Leader of the Year category.
Up to 10 organizations — no matter how large or small — that are acting as change agents in our rapidly shifting economy. This could be an existing business that has found new ways to thrive, or a new business that is opening up exciting new possibilities. These are organizations that are committed to growing and remaining in Edmonton, or using Edmonton as the base of their national/international operations.
A trailblazer is someone who is at or near the top of their area of interest or expertise and leads the way for others to follow. Trailblazers are those rare individuals with a sense of direction and the fortitude to lead the way.
