Enter The Grizzly Den

Introducing Higher Landing’s Grizzlies. Similar to television’s Dragon’s Den, Higher Landing’s transformation clients pitch themselves to the Grizzlies - a panel of influential Calgary business leaders who are ready to provide feedback, suggestions, and leads in order to help clients land higher in their careers.

Experience this one-of-a-kind opportunity to take on the Higher Landing Grizzlies!



The Grizzly Den is a critical element of the Higher Landing approach to client branding and purpose. Similar in some respects to the Dragon’s Den, a panel of invited executives listen to the interview presentation of clients who have come through the Higher Landing program.

Through enquiry, the Grizzlies determine the clarity and commitment of the brand of the client and are required to judge by majority if the client is market ready. Market readiness is confirmed with the acknowledgement of Grizzly Certification.

Interested in becoming a Grizzly? 

We are always looking for influential decision makers to add to the Den.

Please email for more details.
