I've been meaning to tell you that Visa Canada has uploaded the “executive summaries” from its Small Business Big Thinking Conference held in Montreal in June.
The whole conference provided a one-day MBA-level course in everything you need to know to run a business: finance, marketing, management, the Web, negotiating, exporting, standing out from the crowd, selling to government, and so on. I think it’s great that Visa makes these summaries available so that everyone can benefit from the ideas and wisdom discussed at the conference.
The summaries are available in PDF form. Check them out at http://www.visa.ca/bigthinking/presentations.cfm

You can also watch videos of the two keynote speakers: U.S. author Donna Fenn on her best-selling book, Alpha Dogs: How Your Small Business Can Become a Leader of the Pack; and Charles Desourdy, CEO of SkiBromont.com, on the remarkable turnaround that has made his Montreal-area ski resort a local legend – and earned him a national ranking as Entrepreneur of the Year.
