MONTREAL, May 17, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is pleased to be
renewing its association with the C2-MTL international conference
taking place May 21-23 in Montréal. Marking its second edition this
year, C2-MTL features an original conference concept focused on and
promoting the dynamic link between commerce and creativity. This new
conference experience is the product of the Sid Lee advertising
agency's imagination and was designed in collaboration with the Cirque
Laurentian Bank has been associated since the very beginning with this
immersive three-day event, which includes inspiring presentations by
renowned speakers, interactive exhibitions, collaborative workshops,
and a creation Boot Camp — all unfolding in a unique innovation village
setting created exclusively by and for C2-MTL in the Griffintown

The Concierges extraordinaires program - for a Memorable Experience
Thanks to an initiative of Laurentian Bank, a special "concierge"
service will be offered again this year to see to the well-being of
visitors and help ensure that they have a most memorable experience.
Known as "concierges extraordinaires", these helpful facilitators are
there to look after attendees before, during and after the event, and
are dedicated to making sure that they enjoy the conference and their
stay in Montréal to the maximum.
In addition to initiating this service, Laurentian Bank also played an
active role in training all the concierges. This training is aligned
with the Bank's Making a difference in the lives of our clients promise, which is being applied to the participants in the case of this
conference, and which reflects the organization's core values of
professionalism, confidence and proximity.
This year, the concierge experience is actually being extended to the
virtual world with the development of the HUBert platform. Presented by
Laurentian Bank, HUBert is a veritable professional go-between that
connects and fosters exchange among participants who share the same
areas of interest and needs.
Stimulating Meetings in the Knowledge Market
Laurentian Bank will also be presenting the Knowledge Market, another unique concept serving to mesh the know-how of certain
attendees with the needs to know of others. In a way, Knowledge Market constitutes a dynamic and interactive hub that connects business people
in accordance with what they are seeking. This venue is located in the
Laurentian Bank Lounge.
Presentation by John Mackey
Finally, the Bank will be the official presenter of a presentation
entitled The Culture of Conscious Capitalism, to be delivered by Mr. John Mackey, Co-founder and President and CEO
of Whole Foods. Mr. Mackey will focus in particular on the success of
the Whole Foods chain, which has been built on action guided by a clear
vision, the belief in a decentralized management system, and on total
transparency with employees.
