SOHO comes to town

Just a reminder that the (mostly free!) SOHO small business conference is coming up fast. In fact, if you live in Vancouver, it's on tomorrow at Canada Place.

The Toronto event runs next Thursday, Oct. 19, at the CNE trade centre.The keynote speakers (for which a fee is charged) are David Chalk, former computer retailer turned high-tech TV host, and Ron Buist, the former marketing director of Tim Hortons – and the guy who invented the oft-copied “Roll Up the Rim to Win” promotion. There are lots of other things going on: seminars, workshops, entrepreneur roundtables and a trade show. Admission to most activities is free if you pre-register.

Among the post-10 a.m. freebie speakers are economists from the TD Bank, Michael Hepworth on breakthrough marketing, “Book Yourself Solid” author Michael Port, and business coaches Jamie Cunningham, Sandy Kemp and Warren Coughlin.

For an extra fee you can get some peer counselling or attend the post-show party. Sounds like a great way to celebrate Small Business Week!
