Looking to the Future
The Centre for Christian Studies is delighted to engage with Julie Ng-Leung to carry out a new strategic planning project from June to the end of 2023. You may recall the Centre drafted a strategic plan in 2019, but due to the pandemic much of it was never carried it out. As Central Council revisited that plan late last year, there was a strong recognition that it requires further work to understand the changing world after COVID.
Julie Ng-Leung is an active member of Broadview United Church, formerly St. Aidan’s United, in Victoria, BC. She has volunteered much of her time to foster intercultural ministry at Broadview. Born and raised in Hong Kong and graduated from the University of Regina with a business administration degree, Julie has strong experience in marketing consultancy, management development, repositioning, and managing companies ranging from small and local to world-renowned brands in different parts of the world such as CNN, FedEx, SONY, and Citibank.
After a successful marketing career in Hong Kong and returning to Canada, she was invited by the Royal Roads University to teach the Social Marketing course in the Master of Arts in Intercultural and International Communication Program. In 2022, she developed a new communication course for the same program, aiming to nurture and prepare the future generation for real world marketing and communication.
Julie is working with a strategic planning team, made up of CCS Development staff Lori Stewart, CCS Program Coordinator Scott Douglas, and CCS grad Beth Walker from Victoria, to begin this important project. As part of her process, Julie will be connecting with various members of the CCS community to learn from their perspectives. The goal is that by early next year, we will have a new and clear strategic plan in place that will empower us to work in a direction that brings hope and excitement to the Centre. Eventually, it will set the path for CCS to engage in a changing and diverse world.
