Cirque du Soleil President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel Lamarre was the guest lecturer on October 10, 2012, at the third edition of the Québec Annual Lecture organized by the Québec Government Office in London (DGQL).

Mr. Lamarre gave a lecture entitled “A World of Opportunities” before an audience of over 700. His lecture was followed by the exclusive presentation of an extract from the Cirque du Soleil show Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour on the eve of its European premiere. This year’s Québec Annual Lecture was organized with the support of Fasken Martineau and CGI.

Celebrating the excellence of distinguished Quebecers

The purpose of the Québec Annual Lecture is to spotlight the excellence and creativity of Quebecers who have distinguished themselves in their respective fields. Louise Arbour, President and Chief Executive Officer of the International Crisis Group, and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, was the lecturer at the first edition in December 2010. In 2011, it was the turn of Canadian astronaut Julie Payette to accept the DGQL’s invitation.

Over 700 people attended Mr. Lamarre’s lecture (Photo: ©Gemma Spiers).
