  • Title: Rick Antonson | Key Note Speakers Canada
    Descriptive info: Former CEO of Tourism Vancouver, Award Winning Business Innovator and Author.. Rick Antonson is author of the acclaimed books.. To Timbuktu for a Haircut.. ;.. A Journey Through West Africa.. , and.. Route 66 Still Kicks; Driving America s Main Street.. His forthcoming book (September, 2015) is.. Full Moon Over Noah s Ark; An Odyssey to Mount Ararat.. Rick has served as board chair of the Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) based in Washington, D.. C.. , and as deputy chair of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) based in Bangkok, Thailand and as an Ambassador for the 2010 Olympic Winter Paralympic Games held in Vancouver and Whistler, Canada.. He was a founding board member of the Canadian Tourism Commission.. And he was a founder of the 12 year old international marketing alliance Best Cities.. Until earlier this year he also served as president of Pacific Coast Public Television.. Over 21 years these and many other senior volunteer roles anchored Rick s full time career as president CEO of Tourism Vancouver, an international award winning, 1,000 member organization widely recognized as a global leader in destination marketing, sales, management, and visitor experiences.. Under his leadership, Tourism Vancouver has played a significant role in shaping Vancouver and B.. s future.. Tourism Vancouver launched the bid for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Paralympic Winter Games where Antonson served as a Games Ambassador, initiated the hugely successful expansion of the Vancouver Convention Centre and was at the forefront of the coalition whose work resulted in the building of Canada Line that links Richmond/Vancouver International Airport with downtown Vancouver.. A wide range of other programs began during Antonson s watch, including the organization s partnership with the City of Vancouver on Keep Vancouver Spectacular (an annual, city-wide cleanup initiative now in its 19th year),  ...   Capilano University awarded Antonson an Honorary Doctorate of Laws in 2011, and he has been inducted into the Canadian Tourism Hall of Fame.. He was presented with the IMEX Academy Award in Europe.. Antonson is also a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.. Rick travels extensively around the world for business, speaking engagements and on personal journeys including travels with his two sons Brent and Sean circumnavigating the Northern Hemisphere by train including North Korea, and with his wife, Janice and a driver/guide in a 4 x 4 from Lhasa, Tibet over the Himalayas to Kathmandu, Nepal.. Antonson is a firm believer that travel is a vital force for peace, breaking down barriers to understanding and celebrating our differences.. KEYNOTE TOPIC:.. CATHEDRAL THINKING.. The concept of Cathedral Thinking stretches back to medieval times when architects, stonemasons and artisans laid plans and began construction of the soaring, cavernous structures that would one day serve as places of worship, community gathering spaces and safe havens.. Those who began such work knew they d never live to see their task completed.. Yet their actions kept the living generation tethered to the future.. The concept of thinking as did these cathedral builders, is in Antonson s mind synonymous with long term planning.. Cathedral Thinking has been applied to space exploration, city planning, corporate mandates and other long-range goals that require decades of foresight and preparation so future generations can enjoy their full realization.. Though there are many instances in which Cathedral Thinking can be applied, they all require the same foundation: a far-reaching vision, a well thought-out blueprint, and a shared commitment to long-term implementation.. In the process of laying out this facinating concept, Antonson asks each in the audience to consider collectively and individually What is your Cathedral Thought?..
