You are invited to the 5th Annual Regional Economic Development Gala – Relying on Our Almaguin Roots on October 27th. BROCK DICKINSON Chief Economic Development Officer with Blue Cardinal Capital presents: It's the End of the World as we Know It (and I Feel Fine) We have grown up in a world of steady economic growth, predictable demographic cycles, and a stable international system. But this world - the only one we've ever known - is about to be forever altered, and the old rule books are out the window! From increasing workforce shortages to global pandemics, and from rampant inflation to the collapse of our supply chains, Brock Dickinson takes a look at the sometimes frightening world of tomorrow, and what this means for our businesses and our communities. How we can position ourselves for success in this frightening new reality? This session will surprise, alarm and enlighten - but as always, Brock also promises a few laughs along the way! Panelists: Copperhead Distillery Northridge Inn, Griffith Bros., Crystal Cave Canada, Green Apple Cannabis Catered Meal by Hap-Pea-Ness Catering Cash Bar with Copperhead and South River Brew Co. Seating is limited so please RSVP early. Please RSVP to no later than Tuesday, October 24th at 12:00 p.m. To attend the event, it is $20.00 at the door unless otherwise arranged with the Women’s Own Resource Centre- contact for payment information. It all takes place at Emsdale Community Centre, 25 Joseph St., Emsdale
