Inspiration, Recognition And Celebration!

November 30, 2012

Scott Land’s Western Canadian managers converged upon Calgary’s Bow Valley Square Conference Centre in mid-November to celebrate the season, recognize significant milestones and receive inspiration from some of the city’s top motivators, including hockey legend Lanny McDonald.


Scott Land president Gregg Scott, marking his 30th year in the industry, met with company managers for two full days of discussion, reflection and learning. He shared the results of a recent Employee Survey that showed a remarkable 95% of staff are proud to work at Scott Land, and brought in management coach Dan Gaynor to share his knowledge about leadership. Lanny McDonald also offered his own leadership insights, shared some hockey stories and posed for pictures with the Scott Land team.


The meetings were followed by a festive Staff Appreciation and Christmas Party at the Calgary Golf & Country Club, where the entire team applauded the company’s many successes, including Scott Land’s long-standing, record-setting run as the top land buyer in the industry. Howard Parkyn received a standing ovation from the crowd of more than 100 employees and guests for his 25 years of service, working with Gregg Scott and Scott Land in Lloydminster since 1987.
