ATB is thrilled to be bringing in Terry O’Reilly, Canadian broadcast producer and personality, best known as host of the CBC Radio One series, O'Reilly on Advertising, The Age of Persuasion, and most recently, Under the Influence, to speak at our Entrepreneur Centres later this month.

In Terry’s new book, This I Know: Marketing Lessons from Under The Influence, he discusses the issues most entrepreneurs struggle with:

  • The question: what business are you really in?
  • The age-old marketing truism that what you sell and what people buy are always two different things.
  • The importance of storytelling in marketing, because if you don’t have a story, you don’t have a business.

He also dedicates a chapter to your elevator pitch—can you sum up your company in one compelling, unforgettable line? If you can, your marketing will always be vivid. If you can’t, your company is underperforming.

He’ll be talking about these three topics and several more at the ATB Entrepreneur Centre Events in Calgary and Edmonton. After his talk, we’ve planned a lot of time so he can sit down with attendees and have a real discussion about their marketing issues.

As partners of ATB, we wanted to ensure that you knew about these events so that you could promote them to your network.

How has Womanition benefited me? Let me count the ways I have been a part of the Womanition magazine for 10 years. The first year I was in the magazine, I did nothing, attended no meetings and questioned the benefit of it. I decided to try a 2nd year and commit to attending Dorothy's events. Wow! What a difference. Dorothy says....'show up and magic happens' and it's true. People like to do business with people they know like and trust. Through the years, I learned so much about the value of networking with other business women and it's all from Womanition groups. I have done business and I'm currently doing business with many of the Womanition women. Many of the Womanition women shop and consign at my store on a regular basis. I appreciate that so much. I was never comfortable speaking in front of people. Through attending meetings, I've become much more comfortable speaking in front of others. Events like the Biz Brigades and Aces Workshops have inspired and motivated me to be a better business woman. Dorothy Briggs inspires me everytime I see her. She never stops, she's always growing and trying new business ventures, I really admire that. In fact, she inspired me to start a charitable organization this year. I've tried other networking groups Womanition is my favorite. The women involved are very supportive of each other and Dorothy runs a very efficient meeting. -Glenda Polak
