Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce is going to be hosting their annual Opportunity South Conference and Business Expo here in town. This premier event seeks to provide attendees with the resources, connections, education, and insight they need to help grow their businesses and grow the economic power of Southern Alberta.
This year’s theme is ‘Forward YQL!’, and the key focus of the conference will be on the future and economic potential of our region.
We have an incredible lineup of guest speakers:
If you’ve ever won a free coffee, a donut, or even a television because you “rolled up the rim to win”, you have Ron Buist to thank. A former marketing director for Tim Hortons, Ron will be speaking about million-dollar marketing.
We will also be featuring Canada’s leading futurist, Richard Worzel, who will be mapping out future trends that will shape how we do business.
Lorne Rubis spent most of his career moving between big companies, serving in key leadership roles, and transforming them from the inside-out. Lorne will talk about how to build terrific teams.
Finally, our Keynote Speaker, the Right Honorable Stephen Harper, will be joining us to talk about International Trade.
The two-day conference has a jam-packed schedule, featuring a local issue discovery townhall, a trade show that is open to the public, networking mixers, numerous educational breakout sessions, a steak and lobster dinner, and the Chamber of Commerce’s customary All-candidates Municipal Forum in advance of the local election (open to the public).
“This year’s conference is going to be the event of the fall for our region. With the quality of speakers we’ve managed to secure, along with the activities and opportunities we have planned, you don’t want to miss it.” – Karla Pyrch, Executive Director of the Chamber of
