MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The latest instalment of the Driving for Profit seminar series attracted about 100 industry professionals to the Capitol Banquet Centre in Mississauga Nov. 9.

“It’s still tough times out there. To have close to 100 people participating speaks volumes to the effort of the entire Driving for Profit team,” said Kim Richardson, president of KRTS Transportation Specialists and event partner.

Canadian Trucking Alliance president and CEO David opened the event with a look at the past and gave his insight to the future of trucking.

Incoming Ontario Trucking Association chairman and president and CEO of Liberty Linehaul Brian Taylor followed Bradley with a new segment called “How We Did It” in an interview with Truck News editorial director Lou Smyrlis. Taylor offered up advice to the audience on running a successful trucking company using examples from Liberty’s decades in business.

The morning concluded with three legal experts in the transportation industry, Miriam Isenberg, Douglas Marcello and Carol McAfee Wallace, who were also interviewed by Smyrlis to discuss several industry issues.

“The lawyers presented and commented on several relevant issues and also Brian Taylor will play a key role in the OTA issues of the day; he is the right man at the right time,” said Tom Phillips, vice-president of TST Truckload Express, who was in attendance at the event.  “David Bradley continues to provide leadership and direction when it is sorely needed.”
