An Evening with Innovators (and one Dragon)

Here's an upcoming event that sounds like fun.
Innovators Alliance, a group of Ontario's fastest-growing companies, and the Ontario Ministry of Small Business and Entrepreneurship are hosting "An Evening with Innovators" at the Schulich Business School in Toronto on Dec. 4.
Things get underway at 4 pm with EDC economist Peter Hall leading a discussion on staying competitive in the global economy (sounds timely me). Then there's networking with other growth-oriented CEOs, then dinner. Then comes an address by technology entrepreneur Robert Herjavec, who has launched two fast-growth companies and is now turning heads as the most interesting (and occasionally compassionate) multimillionaire on CBC TV's Dragon's Den.
They'll probably also try to get you to join Innovators Alliance. And why not? They have lots of services, including peer groups, targeted at CEOs who want to grow their business smarter. It could be the best investment you ever make. (And it's not as expensive as you think.)
For more information on An Evening with Innovators, call Leytha Miles at 905-332-0340, ext. 24. (That's in Burlington, so it's long-distance from most of the GTA.)
I have to speak in Vancouver that day, but I will be with you in spirit.

I disagree with you on one point. Robert is not the most interesting dragon in the den. I enjoy them all! It's a great concept for a show: business plus entertainment plus inventions plus unique characters.
