Scandinavian Business Club Dinner

Glenn Sig­urd­son — Medi­a­tor, Lawyer, Hon­orary Con­sul Gen­er­al for Ice­land

“Prag­mat­ics of Doing Busi­ness with Indige­nous Com­mu­ni­ties and Peo­ple”

Glenn Sig­urd­son has been known as a medi­a­tor, nego­tia­tor, lawyer, facil­i­ta­tor, adju­di­ca­tor, econ­o­mist, teacher, writer, but now all of these influ­ences have meld­ed and today he states, “I lead with­out own­ing” “work­ing in the space between”. Much of his work is with­in and among com­pa­nies, com­mu­ni­ties, civ­il soci­ety orga­ni­za­tions, and gov­ern­ments in the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, build­ing part­ner­ships and resolv­ing dif­fer­ences. My role is to deliv­er a spe­cial kind of lead­er­ship as the “man in the mid­dle”. Today many would describe this as the work of a Social Inno­va­tor.

A cor­ner­stone of this talk will be on the prag­mat­ics of doing busi­ness with Indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties and peo­ple. Placed in his­tor­i­cal and cur­rent con­text, from the Fur trade, our fam­i­ly busi­ness for over a cen­tu­ry on Lake Win­nipeg, and my years of work­ing as a pro­fes­sion­al between large and small com­pa­nies and com­mu­ni­ties. This is the lifeblood of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, a word that is com­ing to “the Main Stream”. The last decade how­ev­er, it is part of a much larg­er sto­ry, of iden­ti­ty and diver­si­ty, and plac­ing it in that big frame is impor­tant.

Glenn is also author of Vikings on a Prairie Ocean in which he blends per­son­al mem­oir, fam­i­ly his­to­ry and Ice­landic lore in a unique and wide-rang­ing auto­bi­og­ra­phy.
