B.C. Business Summit 2019

Event Description

The Business Council of British Columbia will present its seventh annual B.C. Business Summit on November 20, 2019.

We invite you to join us as we explore the paradox of economic growth, abundant assets, resources and talent contrasted by a backdrop of disruption, risk, uncertainty and at times self-inflicted policies that impede success around both the kitchen table and the boardroom table.

Polling and surveys confirm that businesses and the public at large are anxious about the future. For many Canadian business leaders, our country’s competitiveness challenges, skilled labour shortages and escalating world-wide protectionism are taking a toll on confidence, particularly against the backdrop of slowing global growth.

What can we do to position our economy for the future and generate shared prosperity for British Columbians and Canadians? Don't miss this dynamic day-long exploration of the challenges and opportunities of our time.

The B.C. Business Summit brings together over 450 leaders from business, academia, government, Indigenous communities and the next generation. This year's line up of speakers and unique special guests will make the 2019 Summit as thought-provoking, action-packed, and valuable as previous years.
