MONTREAL, Nov. 9, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec Technology Association has released the program for the 13th annual CEO Vision event - an exclusive forum for CEOs of Quebec ICT companies slated to be held at the Tremblant Fairmount from February 20 to 23, 2013. www.ceovisionpdg.org
"CEO Vision is a top-tier professional development event that provides CEOs with a unique opportunity to catch up on the latest management trends, make connections, and conduct business", explained François Rainville, President of the CEO Vision 2013 Organizing Committee.
Dream, Dare, Win! Just like elite athletes, the road to becoming CEO requires a strong commitment to excellence, teamwork, determination, and conviction. CEOs and athletes alike have a dream and both dare to act on it for the win. This is the theme of CEO Vision 2013 where distinguished speakers, successful business people, economists, visionaries, experts and a surprise athlete will come together to share experiences.
High calibre speakers: Sir Terry Matthews, who successfully founded more than 80 companies, Howard Gwin, a gifted investor who took more than 25 companies all the way to the top, Serge Beauchemin, a successful businessman with no shortage of mobilization advice, Louis Gialloreto, an executive marketing professor at McGill, Réjean Dancause, a specialist in issues that affect the peripheral business environment, and René Vézina, an economic columnist who is well-known in the Quebec business community, will brainstorm with the CEOs and offer up pointers to put them on a winning path.
A unique Forum where participants contribute to the richness of the agenda: CEO Vision offers such a tremendous wealth of expertise and know-how that CEOs contribute to the richness of the agenda by the mere fact of their presence. Participants have already planned 25 workgroups for the event, each of which will be facilitated by experienced business people. Click here to see the list of the 75 CEOs who have already registered: www.ceovisionpdg.org.
The CEO Vision experience is the very essence of extreme networking: Participants, speakers and sponsors alike will reap the benefits of meetings organized by AQT members designed to connect industry actors who are most likely to do business together. Detailed participant profiles, including business objectives, are available all year long (hard copies or Web format on the AQT portal). "Since last year's event sold out by December, we raised the number of seats to 150 to meet the demand and multiply the business opportunities", stated Nicole Martel, Chief Executive Officer, AQT.
