TORONTO, Ont. — David Bradley, president of the Ontario Trucking Association and chairman of the Canadian Trucking Alliance, will open the next Driving for Profit Seminar by discussing current and future business conditions for the trucking industry.

The event will take place at the Sandman Signature Hotel in Toronto Oct. 21 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Mark Seymour, president of Kriska Holdings, and Len Anderson, partner of KPMG Enterprise, will both repeat their presentations from the previous Driving for Profit seminar in Kingston Aug. 21. The duo discussed such issues as dealing in troubling times, communicating the plan and giving customers the information they expect.

“Mark and Len were real and on top of what is necessary to be successful now and in the future. They understand the challenges faced by the trucking industry. I will be sure to bring our president along for the next seminar,” said Paul Mackie of the Mackie Group.

Sylvite Group CEO Hugh Loomans will join the others in Toronto to give his presentation, “Think Green for Profits.”

“The best testimonial we can receive is having industry leaders who want to be involved in the Driving for Profit Seminars,” says Kim Richardson of KRTS Transportation Specialists, a Driving for Profit partner. “The people presenting are very good at what they do. We appreciate them sharing their valuable experience and participating in our seminars.”

The Driving for Profit Seminar Series is a joint venture between KRTS and NAL Insurance. The program starts off with breakfast, followed by a welcome from the series sponsor SelecTrucks of Canada. There will be a question and answer period after the presentations, followed by a full lunch.

The price to attend is $49. Participants are entitled to a special room rate at the Sandman Signature Hotel, starting at $139 for a double. Call 416-798-8840 and mention the DFP event to reserve your room.
