TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 20, 2006) -

Attention: Assignment, Business and Photo editors

WHO: Elyse Allan

WHAT: Fundamental change - positive or negative - requires
businesses to modify the way they think. And in many cases
to reinvent themselves. No large company is perhaps a
better example of this mindset revolution than GE, which is
clearly taking the initiative when it comes to finding new
technologies and new ways to conserve and save our planet.
This is not only the right thing to do, but a profitable
one as well.

On October 23rd Elyse Allan will speak about some of the
fundamental changes facing businesses today and in
particular she'll share some insights into what Canadian
businesses and business leaders need to do to ensure their
places in the transforming global economy.

WHEN: 1 p.m. luncheon address - Monday, October 23, 2006

WHERE: Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Room 105 (North)
