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.

I have been a part of the Womanition magazine for 10 years. 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. Events like the Biz Brigades and Aces Workshops have inspired and motivated me to be a better business woman. -Glenda Polak
