This is a combination in person (Calgary) and online (GoToWebinar) event.

Building Teams That Win In Any Economy

As a business owner or entrepreneur, you have to deal with a lot of concurrent challenges. When you have a solid team working with you, it alleviates a lot of the pressure on you.

To keep a team at a high level of performance, you must start with a commitment to excellence throughout the organization.

Once you are clear on what the mission, vision, and goals are at any point in time, you can define the organizational impact areas. Impact areas are the parts or functions of the business that are critical to success.

People are the threads that run through every impact area. The cumulative beliefs and values of the people make up the culture of the organization.

In this Speaker Series Event, you will learn some strategies and approaches to create cohesive teams and a competent organization. The speakers will share with you their accumulated knowledge and experience, gained over many years of working in industry, consulting and training others. You could transform your business by implementing a single idea.

When you achieve a culture of excellence, you can win with less pain in both up and down economies.


Vince Aliberti and Al Dhalla will be your hosts for the evening.
