Cade is considered one of North America’s top experts on workplace bullying.

She said that at least one out of six people have reported being bullied at work. One-fourth of those will suffer greatly with long‐term side effects, but only 11 percent of bullying victims will go to their manager for help. Research has shown that higher education is one of the industries where workplace bullying is most likely to occur.

A Canadian management consultant and professional speaker, Cade has delivered keynotes and training sessions throughout North America, Europe, China and Russia for 15 years. Maclean’s magazine says her book is “ground breaking in terms of creating accountable corporate policy throughout North America to stop bullying in the workplace.”

Cade’s book will be available for purchase at both sessions.
