Morning Keynote: Tightening Sounds Frightening; This Time, it’s Actually Good News (Hosted by Export Development Canada)
Are we ever satisfied? It doesn’t seem so. For years, humanity has been clamoring that there hasn’t been enough growth. Now it seems there is too much. It’s an instant flip that’s now focused on how tight things are getting. Hear from Peter Hall, Vice-President and Chief Economist at EDC, who will give you advice on how to make the year ahead an international success for your company.
Workshop & Panel: Selling Outside Your Client Zone: How to Know Where to Grow (Hosted by Nova Scotia Business Inc.)
It's a big world - and Nova Scotians know that growing their business means getting outside their client zone and seeking opportunities beyond the province's border.
But how do you choose your next target market? Starting with a good understanding of your customers at home and using that to map out your growth plan, is a critical first step.
In this workshop you'll hear from local business leaders who have expanded into different regions across the world, and figure out how far from home you should go to successfully grow your business.
