About The Speaker

Izabella Roth

Roth is a specialist in both trivia and good health—like how to get rid of hiccups. Or the trivia that she once worked as a volunteer firefighter. Or trivia in the form of statistics, like those times she worked with Alberta Health Services to reduce staff turnover by 91%, drive down union complaints by a third, and reduced medical mistakes by 12%. Maybe it’s not biting on a lemon, but those statistics represent a different kind of cure.

How do you cure the hiccups? Izabella Roth is the kind of person who knows multiple answers. Drink a glass of water quickly. Bite on a lemon. Drink from the far side of the glass.

It’s not just that kind of random trivia that intrigues Roth. It’s her passion for health and healing. It helps that Roth is a health leadership professional, now at the passionately happy helm of Infinity Healthcare. It helps that she holds an MBA from IE Business School, ranked among the top three MBA programs on the planet by the Financial Times in their 2017 Global MBA Ranking. It helps that she also holds Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Nursing degrees from the University of Alberta and has been laboring, laughing, sometimes crying, and often celebrating with the healthcare providers under her supervision for more than a decade.

Izabella succeeds by keeping her workplace fun and her leadership style light. Her uniquely bright combination of leadership and people skills shone first during her tenure as the Director of Health and Emergency Management for the North Peace Tribal Council: her holistic managerial style and innovative health and education initiatives there not only dramatically improved the Tribal Council’s ability to service the community but also earned Izabella national recognition from Health Canada and brought her speaking opportunities at the national and local levels.

Later, as Ambulatory Care Manager for Alberta Health Services (directing a team of 50 physicians, RNs, LPNs, pharmacists, social workers, and administrative staff) and more recently as Edmonton Area Director for Bayshore Home Health (directing a team of over 300), Izabella’s managerial prowess and devotion to her employees dramatically boosted staff morale while simultaneously benefitting the companies’ financial health. Bayshore Home Health’s Revenue grew by a whopping 2799% under her directorship.

Most recently in March of 2020, Izabella was asked to speak to 5000 Albertans at the wildly successful event of Power of Success, alongside the great Arnold Schwarzenegger and the coveted Molly Bloom!!

Roth insists that changing the world starts at home. To that end, and working together with her husband, she raises two delightfully inquisitive children and one equally inquisitive Shih Tzu Yorkie mix—aka a Shorkie—named Hiccup.
