Tanya LaBuick

Tanya hails from Brandon, Manitoba. She spent summers at the lake and travelling by train to the west coast, and winters in the snow – shoveling, tobogganing, skating and watching her mother play broomball; her life has always been about diversity.

Tanya is the Principal Consultant and Owner of LaBuick & Co., a boutique firm that provides projects, companies, and people Olympic level expertise with a team of individuals who like to work hard, like their work, and like each other.

She has over 20 years’ experience in strategy development, project management, and program implementation. Tanya is a globally certified project manager, trained leadership facilitator, and certified business coach. Her career history is littered with high-profile clients for large-scale MEGA events, including five Olympic & Paralympic Games, several Super Bowls, two FIFA Women’s World Cups, and a substantial list of national, regional and local projects.  She is also a regular columnist for her local paper and writes a biweekly blog on life, leadership, and the Canadian way. 

Tanya also believes in community, and using our gifts and talents to support the places we live and work. She is an active Director with the Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation Board, which works to support a vibrant, healthy, sustainable community neighbourhood with successful community projects. Recently, the Manitoba Minister of Justice appointed Tanya to the Judicial Justice of the Peace for Brandon recruitment committee and she is also a committee member for A Place to Call Home, which was tasked with creating a strategic framework to eradicate youth homelessness in Brandon. The committee gathered local data and formulated four priorities for the roadmap: prevention, housing and supports, locally integrated system of care, and integrated systems planning. 

Tanya is most known for being fair, being resourceful and being there. Her network is vast and her commitment to excellence is unwavering. She is a focused leader who builds high-performance multi-functional teams who deliver excellent results. She has immense respect for sport, business, and people. Tanya believes in passion and performance, kindness, and loyalty. She also believes peanut butter M&Ms and purple pens are the keys to happiness.
