Fall is upon us and 2020 is less than 3 months away. Now is the best time to start working on New Year’s resolutions. As the first-year anniversary of CanadianSME’ s launch is approaching, we could not be prouder of everything we have accomplished so far. Not only have we gained national recognition, but we’re also a best choice for entrepreneurs when it comes to having an online platform that provides all the resources and knowledge they need to make their business a success. CanadianSME has come a long way since it’s first issue. Every month, more and more entrepreneurs put their trust in us to provide them with valuable content that can contribute to the success of their business. This month is no different and we’ve made it our mission to deliver quality exceptional content.
The month of October is without a doubt one of the most important months for small business owners. Why? It’s the month that BDC celebrates the Small Business Week. This year marks the 40th edition of BDC Small Business Week. Additionally, BDC is also celebrating their 75th anniversary. From October 20th to 26th, BDC Small Business Week will be celebrated all throughout Canada. This is an event that small business owners don’t want to miss out on as there will be entrepreneurs from all different industries sharing their expertise and knowledge.
As October is the small business celebration month, our issue this month is filled with interviews and articles from top leaders in different industries who share their insight and knowledge on important topics. Garrick Tiplady, Managing Director of Facebook and Instagram Canada shares his views on social media marketing and Natasha Aquin founder of Unbound Technologies talks about the challenges of starting a business and how she built her success.
Silvia Pencak in her success story tells us about her Top 7 Leadership Tips and Alita Fabiano, Director of Communications & Marketing of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce talks about the different steps entrepreneurs should take to become successful. Top leaders such as Arun Kumar who is the Head of Small Business Banking at BMO, Marie Rosecrans who is the Senior VP of SMB Marketing at Salesforce, Paul Struther, VP and Managing Director of Sage Canada and our business women of the month Elyse Regan who is the Global Project & Account Manager for RAF & Nerds On Site share their knowledge and tips about leadership and entrepreneurship for small business owners.
We are very excited about October’s issue and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts and feedback about the content. We hope you will find this issue resourceful and that we can once again contribute to the success of your business through our insightful articles. Happy reading!
