Learning & Development Opportunities Keys to Entrepreneurial Success

New seminar program targets businesses and professionals of all types

Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Education Editor WHITBY, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 15, 2006) - Finding high-quality professional development and educational opportunities that meet the unique needs of today's busy independent business owner and employees is sometimes a challenge. Conext Inc., a growing Whitby based company that provides specialized business management services to produce high-quality events and seminars, has announced its new Executive Development and Seminar program. Business people now have an opportunity to learn from some of the best business speakers, trainers and educators through a series of stimulating seminars and workshops spanning several subject areas: Leadership & Coaching, Sales & Management, Communications and Stress Management.

The Fall/Winter 2006 seminar calendar is offered now through to December 2006. Subjects are targeted primarily to the small-to-medium business segment; however they are also of broader interest to even the most seasoned CEOs of the largest corporations. "We've developed an exciting calendar," says Sandra Terry, VP Finance and Technology, "by integrating the desires expressed by the local business community with the talent of speakers and seminar leaders with International experience." All individual topics are designed to inform, educate and deliver to participants increased skills immediately applicable to their business environment.

"Our clients and associates noted that while there are many week-long industry specific conferences one can attend, finding quality 'quick-hit' educational opportunities is more difficult. And particularly to find ones that don't drain the budget. We have filled that gap." comments Janis Amzallag, VP Business Development. The seminars, depending on the particular topic, are offered in full and half-day sessions throughout Durham Region and Greater Toronto Area making it very convenient for busy businesspeople to attend. "What is unique about our current course selection," continues Ms. Amzallag, "is the fact that you can basically mix-and-match Conext seminars depending on your interests and needs to create your own personalized learning experience. And within a session for a particular topic you may have around you a broad base of professions represented - sales, human resources and professional consulting, for example - which enhances the networking opportunity and the chance to share ideas."

Conext seminars are applicable and open to all business professionals. The current Fall/Winter schedule includes the following topics:

Leadership & Coaching
