Each time a major crisis hits, it seems like it’s the worst, but most of us have experienced a number of downturns in the economy and lived to tell the tale. It is cyclical. That said the difference between past downturns and the current one is the speed at which it has developed. It has hit numerous businesses and industries at the same time with a rapidity that we’ve never seen before. As a result of this we have to respond in the same rapid way.
BCBusiness Magazine is presenting Doing Business in Tough Times, Proven Strategies That Work at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver tomorrow and thanks to James Laitenen of CDOT Networks, Techvibes is giving away 10 free tickets.
BCBusiness magazine publisher, award winning speaker and entrepreneur, Peter Legge, will present 97 tips about how to do business in tough times with proven principles that work.
Legge, voted “Top Speaker in North America” by Toastmasters International, built Canada Wide Media Limited (publisher of BCBusiness magazine) from one magazine into Western Canada’s largest independently owned publishing company. Under Legge’s leadership, the company has always made a profit whether economic upturn or upheaval.
“Many people feel we have been knocked down but as Muhammad Ali said: you are only knocked down if you don’t get up. This seminar is intended to help businesses in B.C. get back up on their feet. This is not an economic forum but a practical hands-on seminar with ideas that business people can implement immediately,” explains Legge.
He added that a number of the company’s clients were at a bit of a loss as to how to handle this sudden downtown in the economy. So the tough times seminar was born in a brainstorming session about how Canada Wide Media could help its clients respond to the crisis.
If you would like to attend this seminar tomorrow (Tuesday, February 3rd) from 3:00pm – 5:00pm, please claim your ticket with a short comment to this blog post AND email James to have you name added to the guest list.
