    Core Values
    Communication
    Consistency of values and actions

    Norm will provide numerous examples from day to day management and will also address various other rules of thumb for effective leadership including the ‘rule of thirds’ and the need to bat .750 – no more, no less – in order to remain effective.

    Guest Speaker: Norm Bacal

    Norman is the author of the nonfiction debut Globe and Mail bestseller, “Breakdown”, about the meteoric rise and devastating downfall of prestigious Canadian law firm Heenan Blaikie, once home to Canada’s top lawyers, including former Prime Ministers, Jean Chrétien and Pierre Trudeau. Bacal founded the Toronto office of that firm in 1989 and in 1997, became the national co-managing partner, expanding their operations and clout internationally. He also served on the board of directors for Lionsgate Entertainment 10 years.

    His debut fiction novel, “Odell’s Fall” was called “a page-turning potboiler of a read” by former HBO Pictures President, Robert Cooper.  Bacal brings to writing his experience as one of Canada’s leading tax attorneys in the entertainment business.  He has helped to finance countless Canadian films and television programs and a number of Hollywood studio pictures.  In addition to writing, Bacal is a frequent speaker at law schools and forums.  He regularly delivers keynote speeches at corporate retreats, and has taken part in several roundtable discussions featuring prominent experts in firm management, growth and development.  Some of his topics include “Learning to Lead,” Building a Firm,” “The Importance of Culture and Values,” and “Building a Career.”

    Born in Montreal in 1956, Bacal graduated from McGill University’s Faculty of Law in 1980. He currently resides in Toronto with his wife, Sharon, a portrait artist. The couple have four children.
