About Us: The Corporate Subscription Program

The Corporate Subscription Program

At SCNetwork, programming is designed to bring the most current thought leaders into the room to share their ideas and experiences of driving strategies that successfully support organizations to achieve competitive strength through people. Topics and case studies, varied by industry and sector, illustrate how today's progressive leaders are building strategic capability, increasing organizational effectiveness, or modeling more effective leadership in action.  

The Corporate Subscription is an easy and economical way for organizations to access learning, discussion and networking opportunities for their professional and management staff with the added option of being able to bring many of the SC Network programs in-house via webcast.

In addition, corporate subscriber executives receive exclusive invitations to "executive only" events held 2 - 3 times a year, designed for strategic discussion on a variety of topics relevant to the most senior executive. 

Subscription Benefits and Fee

For an annual fee of $1,000, the Corporate Subscription Program is designed to offer the HR executive subscriber unique access to professional development forums, networking opportunities and resources benefiting the executive, the HR function and also, line management concerned with organizational change. These include:

  • Exclusive invitations to join peers in 2 - 3 discussion forums a year (approx. 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. including reception), designed specifically to address current priorities and strategic challenges facing business leaders at the top.
  • Admission to monthly breakfast or half-day seminars and networking events, on a wide range of topics and led by some of industry’s most current thought leaders, for up to 4 professional, management or executive staff (12 sessions or more/year). These are held at the National Club in downtown Toronto.
  • Access to National Club breakfast seminars via webcast for the executive to participate conveniently from her or his office. Alternatively, these events can be broadcast onsite to the HR team or other internal line management, creating a natural forum for discussion of related issues specific to your own organization, business or people agenda. Multiple locations can be added at modest additional cost.

Program Management Guidelines

  • Corporate Subscriptions are registered in the name of the senior HR executive. 
  • Organizations that get the most out of their subscription usually appoint an internal program coordinator responsible for internal communication, event registration, accessing website resources or webcast arrangements. This individual is registered as a contact liaison for any related SCNetwork communications and maintains password access to the web site and event registration.
