After a year away…the Progress Breakfast 2017

So, stopped blogging for a while. In reality I’ve struggled to find time for any in depth writing, and some of what I was able to do shifted to Facebook, which I have a love-hate relationship with…in any event, herewith my presentation from the 2017 Progress Breakfast last week.  There was an incredible opening speaker, Nicole Verkindt of CBC’s Next Gen Dragon’s Den, who talked about the path to success for young entrepreneurship and the impact of disruptive technology on just about everything. My talk was both a State of the City update (first ten slides) and then a discussion about shifting service delivery models to being proactive instead of reactive…and leveraging the sharing economy.  here’s the deck:
