Those who were not able to attend the National Aboriginal Entrepreneurs Conference and Tradeshow of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB), held on October 24 and 25, can now do so virtually. The CCAN has posted "a complete video capture" of all the workshops, panels and speeches from the two-day conference, the business organization said.
"You can experience the speakers' information and the plenary sessions with some of Canada's best business experts and many of Canada's premier aboriginal entrepreneurs," the CCAB said. The broadcasts are available in both English and French.
The conference reviewed accomplishments and gave instruction on business practices, showcasing promising statistics and outlook in a study the CCAB released earlier this year predicting that the aboriginal market will reach $32 billion by 2016, “larger than the GDPs of two provinces in Canada,” according to CCAB Chief Executive Officer Clint Davis, a fact that "destroys the myth that we’re a drain on the Canadian taxpayer."
One of the hotter views is Spotlight on Aboriginal Businesses. The two-day conference was chockfull of information, advice and inspiration. Take a look.
