What can you expect at BCMMGC2020?
Today’s market is riddled with complexities. We’ve built an agenda geared to help you navigate uncertainty, strengthen your network, and come out ahead. That means diving deep through interactive sessions, great conversations, and above all – time to connect with the people on the front lines of all this change: your peers.
How’s the agenda shaping up?
Watch for unique content that brings new thinking, and practical ideas:
Economic Update: Leading perspectives from Jean-François Perrault, Senior Vice President & Chief Economist with Scotiabank to paint a clear picture of where BC stands, and how we grow from here.
All about the sell-side: Fresh insight on the sell-side process and best practices to help you make decisions with confidence.
Growth capital: Investing in the face of uncertainty is complex. Informing your thinking with expert angles doesn’t have to be.
Leading through change: When the market evolves, our teams do, too. Top talent leaders will offer guidance on transitionary leadership in a fast-changing market.
Gaining a competitive edge: Thinking globally and building locally can help define BC’s competitive advantage right here, right now.
“We are facing uncertain economic times in British Columbia in part due to an extended period of economic growth, trade disputes, new regulations and shifting international trade. Executives and other deal makers need to account for this in their corporate strategy. Understanding the changing market dynamics here in BC empowers us to take bold steps forward. Sharing ideas, building relationships, and hearing from other experts can improve your ability to thrive in this new economic reality.”
“There’s still optimism in the air. With the economy projected to grow at a slower rate than in the recent past, more now than ever, we need to balance that optimism with pessimism to assist with optimal investment decisions. The way we do business continues to evolve at a faster and faster pace. But with change comes opportunities that are ripe for exploitation.”
