Announcement, Industry Listing.

Dear colleagues:
I am writing to extend a request to participate in an online survey “MBA Research Study - Canadian Performing Arts Leadership Audit”. For the purpose of this study, I define a performing arts leader as an individual who is the primary lead of the artistic and/or business functions of their organization.

The organization can be of any size, and any performing arts discipline.

You can access the survey by clicking on this link:

I am gathering this primary research to write a research paper as a final component for my MBA in Executive Management at Royal Roads University, with a specialization in Management Consulting. I am not being paid to conduct this research, it is part of an academic requirement. I am grateful to Gideon Arthurs, CEO of the National Theatre School who agreed to act as my client, as required by the program.

The objective of my research is to gather and interpret data about current performing arts leaders in Canada: demographic information, career path, formal and informal education, and your thoughts about traits and skills necessary to be a leader in Canada's performing arts sector. The aim is to have a better understanding of the profile and make-up of our current leadership across provinces, organization sizes, and artistic disciplines.

The raw data will be kept confidential with myself. Aggregate summary data of the findings will be shared with the client, and any participant upon request. There is more detailed information regarding privacy and consent on the first pages of the survey. The survey should take 20-30 minutes to complete.

I would be most grateful for your time, and please share widely with your networks of performing arts leaders.

Again, thank you for your time!
