TORONTO, Ont. — The Ontario Trucking Association’s newly revamped OTA Convention and Executive Forum is coming to the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Toronto Nov. 13-14.
The speakers and topics at the 87th edition of the convention will include: • Tom Connellan, the “Dr. Phil of corporate performance,” on attaining superior sales performance and navigating turbulent economic times; • WestJet founder Don Bell on corporate culture strategizing; • Doug Robbins, president and founder of Robbinex, on bridging the generation gaps at your company; and • Mark Thompson, CEO and co-founder of the Business Entrepreneurship Hub for Virgin United, on world-class companies that have confronted change.
