"This is a remarkable story of motivation, dedication and inspiration. Susan's life story will inspire you to dream and act on those dreams. Elected in 1992, Susan A. Thompson was the first (and so far only) woman Mayor of Winnipeg. Among other trailblazing achievements, she was the first woman to own her family business, the first woman Rotarian in Manitoba, the first woman Consul General at the Canadian Consulate in Minneapolis, and the first woman and founding President and CEO of the University of Winnipeg Foundation. What motivated her to reach such formidable goals? Take a glimpse into her early days as a business owner and the lessons she learned along the way. Find out what really happened at City Hall when the first woman mayor (it only took 118 years!) took office. Susan takes you through the triumphs and the obstacles she faced as a pioneer in a male-oriented society. Susan was Mayor of Winnipeg during some of the city's most extraordinary times... winning the bid for the 1999 Pan Am Games, the loss of the Winnipeg Jets and the 1997 Flood of the Century. Find out firsthand how Susan led the city through these trying and unforgettable moments in time. Entrepreneur, politician, diplomat, fundraiser, storyteller... meet “the one and only” SUSAN THOMPSON"--Back cover.
