BMO Bank of Montreal and PROFIT Magazine Renew Prescription for Small Business Success



    New Business Coach podcast episodes offer expert tips and advice for
    Canadian entrepreneurs

    TORONTO, Oct. 4 /CNW/ - From the producers that launched one of the top
rated podcasts for small business, now comes the sequel. BMO Bank of Montreal
and PROFIT Magazine are taking Canada's entrepreneurs to the next level of
business success by launching a new wave of episodes in the popular Business
Coach podcast series. As of October 2007, new podcast episodes will be
regularly available on iTunes, as well as on bmo.com and PROFITguide.com.
    The series will touch on a number of key topics affecting the small
business community, such as advisory boards, the Facebook phenomenon, economic
forecasts, government funding and the secrets of Canada's most successful
entrepreneurs.
    Rated as one of the top podcasts available for download during the run of
its first episode on Apple iTunes, the new Business Coach episodes will offer
new insight and information in an updated format to help small business owners
run their business better.
    "Following the successful model of PROFIT Magazine, we're tailoring the
Business Coach podcast to deliver actionable insights that will help all
owner/managers improve their bottom line," said Ian Portsmouth, Editor of
PROFIT. "Podcasting allows us to do that in a format that's highly convenient
for busy entrepreneurs."
    The new episodes, which will be shorter in length at only eight to 10
minutes each, will feature a variety of informative and compelling interviews
with a broad range of experts, including small business owners, advisors,
gurus, senior economists and human resource specialists.
    "As a trusted advisor for our small business customers, we take the role
of providing timely and relevant business information seriously," said Gail
Cocker, Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking, BMO Bank of Montreal.
"Partnering with PROFIT Magazine for the next wave of Business Coach podcast
episodes gives Canadian entrepreneurs a distinct advantage to help take their
business to the next level."
    The Business Coach podcast is offered in both English and French, with
the English language interviews hosted by Ian Portsmouth and veteran
broadcaster André Hains leading the Francophone episodes. Subscribers are
invited to provide feedback and suggestions for future episode topics.
