About Brenda Speaker. Motivator. Connector.

I am a global leader with a local conscience. Often referred to as the people’s Mayor, I successfully led the City of Waterloo, Canada as the Mayor from 2006-2014. Responsible for leading the City through one of the most dynamic and innovative periods in its history, my global profile took root when the City of Waterloo won the most “Intelligent Community Award” in 2007 and IBM's Smarter City Challenge in 2012..

My experience led to me becoming an authority in urban centers and advancing technology. In 2012 I was fortunate to lead a Mayor’s International Business mission to 10 cities in China. There I signed friendship agreements with cities in China, Taiwan and Europe, establishing business relationships and opening doors of economic opportunities for Waterloo.
