TEC Canada is proud to be the keynote sponsor of Arlene Dickinson at next week’s York region N6 Chambers event Business Innovation in Changing Times. Arlene, known for her work on TV’s Dragons’ Den, is an accomplished entrepreneur and savvy investor. Her presentation Lessons from the Den: Succeeding at Business and Being an Entrepreneur promises to provide an insight into the route she’s taken to achieve such success and how attendees can approach entrepreneurial success themselves.
In addition, IBM Canada’s Director for Collaboration Technologies, Douglas Heinzman will discuss how new tools are transforming how we work and collaborate, and give businesses strategic advantages. Ian Proudfoot, VP of Metroland Media and Chair of the Newmarket Economic Development Advisory Council (NEDAC) will discuss both the enormous technology-driven shift in the print industry, the high rates of growth in the region, and how both present opportunities to entrepreneurial minded business people.
TEC members, N6 Chamber members and the public are all welcome to attend. More info about the event is available at: http://www.businessknowledgeinitiative.ca/N6/Agendas/AgendaN6EG.html, or follow #N6BizSeries on Twitter to stay in touch with this and upcoming events in the region.
