Back to basics. Reenergize your business.

Everything starts with entrepreneurs: strong companies, competitive economies and prosperous societies. If Canada is to remain prosperous, its entrepreneurs must continue to build successful businesses.

Come hear Jean-René Halde, President and CEO of BDC, the only bank in Canada dedicated exclusively to entrepreneurs, discuss why they should understand the importance of the essential factors of business success. Drawing on his experience and that of Canada’s industry leaders, he will share his perspective on what they are doing to stand out from the rest of the pack.

After the speech, he will be joined by local entrepreneurs for a conversation about their experience in how they are ensuring the ongoing success of their businesses.

A unique opportunity to:

  • Hear interesting research results that could benefit your firm;
  • Be inspired by the direct experience of entrepreneurs who have reenergized their business.

The activity will be held in French.
