CaptureDo yourself a favour and Mark July 14, 2014 on your calendars! Why? Because we’re getting ready for our first, in a series of four all-day business networking events  you won’t soon forget!

The Garage To Global: Sourcing for SMEs events hosted by EntreBahn  will be set up much like speed dating for business professionals , SMEs and entrepreneurs. While at the event you will have an exclusive opportunity to hear from multiple presenters each of whom will join your group in an intimate and engaging roundtable Q&A session. At the end of each session, the presenters will continue to play musical chairs by making the rounds through other tables of attendees throughout the day. This unique format is meant to encourage active participation and a facilitate discussion in a relaxed environment. Morning and afternoon coffee breaks plus a delicious lunch will also be served.

This interactive series will explore the issues of outsourcing including:

1. In-Sourcing, Near-Sourcing, and Out-Sourcing –Which Is Right For You?

2. Financing Outsourcing — What Financial Options Do You Have?

3. Logistics Of Outsourcing — Making Outsourcing Work For You

4. Doing Business Abroad — Preparing Yourself For Doing Business Abroad

The speakers at our first event will discuss their experiences in deciding whether a project should be in-sourced within the company, near-sourced to others nearby or out-sourced to businesses abroad.  One of the objectives of the event is to encourage you to think critically when considering these options in growing your business. As a participant you will have a chance to share ideas, find answers to your business questions and connect with others in the industry.

Spaces for this exclusive event are limited and our early bird offer won’t last long! So for more details or to take advantage of this opportunity register here now!

We look forward to having you join us,

Finally, a real business perk for after work…


“Business Wisdom – Beyond Dragon’s Den”

presented by WizOf.Biz and sponsored by KPMG Enterprise

“…It’s one thing to read about Dragons and another to meet them.
                                               -Ursula K. Le Guin, a Wizard Of Earthsea.

On July 24, 2013, KPMG Enterprise and WizOf.Biz have come together to create unique afterwork perks!  We would like you to join us for what will be the first in a series of Afterworkshop events. In running this interactive business series we are providing SMEs and entrepreneurs like yours, to have the opportunity to learn from alumni of Dragon’s Den and  KPMG Enterprise seasoned professionals in a lively, interactive and open environment. A dynamic question and answer period will give you the chance to interact directly with some of Canada’s best and brightest entrepreneurial minds. You will learn directly what it’s like to be on Dragon’s Den and walk away with some practical tools needed to succeed on the show and beyond.

This Afterworkshop series will give you an opportunity to network with like-minded business professionals and provide you with information you can use to help advance your enterprise. You will also have a chance to take part in a series of applied learning labs as well as share best practices in a dynamic and relaxed manner. The event will feature keynote speakers, expert panels and of course plenty of opportunity to mingle.

The discussion topics at the inaugural Afterworkshop event will focus on best practices sharing from CBC’s Dragon’s Den Finalists who have taken their learnings from the Den and gone on to make their entrepreneurial dreams come true. Learn from some of the county’s most engaging and inspiring entrepreneurs. Take away great tools and advice that can help you succeed on Dragon’s Den.

You will be a part of an interactive forum featuring 2-3 interviewers, (combination of KPMG Enterprise professionals and WizOf.Biz mentors) posing a series of qustions to Dragon’s Den Finaliists who are thriving after surviving their experience with the Dragons. There will also be at least one surprise guest appearance and a chance to win one of ten copies of the book That’ll Never Work by KPMG Enterprise.

At the very least, we promise you good food and a glass of wine after a busy day at work.

Join KPMG’s Senior Manager Ana Chan and WizOf.Biz CEO Reg Charney along with their respective teams of mentors, supporters and professionals, for a business networking event you won’t soon forget!
