Registration is now open for the PTDA 2019 Canadian Conference, to be held June 5-7, 2019, at the Marriott Downtown at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. For the eighteenth year, key decision makers of the Canadian power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry will gather for business networking and education including: a CEO/Senior Executive Roundtable, a Leadership Enhancement Seminar and DM-IDEX. DM-IDEX (Distributor-Manufacturer Idea Exchange) provides Canadian distributor companies the opportunity to schedule one-on-one meetings in advance with the manufacturers they wish to see during the conference. Manufacturers also schedule meetings with distributor companies.
The Leadership Enhancement Seminar presented by Doug Jones, an expert in dynamic leadership and motivation, will focus on practical techniques to help participants resolve problems, remove barriers and excel at achieving results. The second day features Andy Stumpf, Naval veteran and former member of the U.S. elite SEAL Team 6 who will share how great leaders can elicit performance beyond what an individual considers possible. Michael Campbell, business and personal finance expert and host of Money Talks, will discuss the upcoming major shift that will impact currencies, commodities and cross-border business to help members survive and thrive in today’s tumultuous economic environment.
“The Canadian Conference provides great networking opportunities and allows us to continue to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones. We also gain valuable information about the industry. If you’re doing business in the PT Industry in Canada, or have plans to in the future, it’s a must attend event,” said Craig Bobbie, vice president, PTM Industries Inc.
