Eric Loubier -DG- CCMEO Keynote Announcement GeoIgnite 2020 Online
The GeoIgnite conference committee is excited to announce our keynote is the Director General, Eric Loubier, Canada Centre of Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO/NRCan). This is Canada’s National Geospatial Leadership event July 22-24, 2020.
Eric was at the top of our wish list for speakers for this year. We are so glad that our theme of “Leadership in Times of Disruption” resonated with him so that he wanted to be part of this event. This talk will highlight how the work of NRCan, and CCMEO, has supported Canada’s response to COVID-19 in terms of bringing geospatial intelligence to the world and decision makers.
GeoIgnite is incredibly special this year as we are online, and much more accessible. Registration is free for everyone working in government.
