April 21, 2009 07:00 ET Canada Presents World-Class Recession-Proofing Seminar

Business Coaching Firm Hosts 'Don't Just Survive - Grow Your Business!'

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - Canada ("RESULTS"), an award-winning executive and business coaching practice with global operations in Canada, New Zealand, and China, today presents its second world-class recession-proofing seminar back by popular demand following its first highly successful, sold-out seminar in February.

This two-hour presentation held at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. today will educate business leaders on key recession-proofing business strategies that will not only help their businesses survive, but also grow in this troubling climate. Simon Mundell, internationally-renowned business strategist of RESULTS will deliver key information, inspiration and effective tools to help supercharge businesses in 2009 and beyond. Joining him will be Scott Morris, President and CEO of Canada.

"In Alberta the energy industry is a cyclical business with wild swings that should remind us to always focus on best practice business fundamentals," said Morris. "Energy companies along with other major industries need to confront the new reality: this recession requires a different mindset. Companies need to think carefully about every investment and expense because these days they are not getting bailed out by government or high commodity prices. Right now, it is about survival for Canadian business leaders.

At today's seminar, we are focusing on key strategies and tactics to help businesses thrive in unpredictable economic climates. Canadian companies need to rethink how quickly positive cash flow can be generated versus traditional return on investment economic models. Now is the time to revisit these strategies and invest in core business values."

Topics covered at the event will include what business owners must do to capitalize on the shifting market; the latest studies on how to increase the value of employees; the most up-to-date market research; what internal data really say about effective business strategy, succession planning, cash flow management and others; and how to increase the value of businesses.

"Feedback from our first seminar was outstanding and we are excited to bring it back for a second run," added Morris. "Our global expertise led our clients to experience an average growth of 26 per cent in 2008 despite the looming recession, which left many companies struggling just to break even. Today's seminar is packed with tips and tricks that all business leaders must put into action and we look forward to sharing our secrets to success with all attendees."
