Geneviève Leclerc


Geneviève has 25 years of experience in congress management and consultancy for associations, having worked for a PCO, for international associations and as an independent consultant.

Geneviève is currently the Managing Director of an international scientific society and a social entrepreneur, having founded two organizations supporting the business events industry, #Meet4Impact and Caravelle Strategies. Her current focus is developing an evidence-based practice of social impact in our industry and accelerating the business events sector’s commitment to sustainability and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Her most recent venture, the #MEET4IMPACT project, builds on the synergies of her broad experience in meeting planning, association strategy and sustainability. #Meet4impact is a global non-profit organization with the mission of elevating the industry’s understanding and proficiency in implementing and measuring the societal impacts of business events and the UN SDGs. It does this by building an impact framework that offers a comprehensive process for generating, managing and measuring the positive societal impacts of conferences.

Geneviève is involved in several projects that apply social innovation principles and generate social impact. In recent years, she has founded a network of international associations in Montreal and is very active on the social innovation scene in her home city.
