The Business Summit: Resilience and Reinvention

The Business Summit: Resilience and Reinvention

Your Bottom Line   |  

Panel (1).jpg

This year's summit will focus on how much stamina, creativity and recalibration a business requires daily. Like an iceberg you see the top; the business idea, product or service. But beneath the waterline lives significant resilience, reinvention and a drive to succeed – slowly and methodically. 
Let's explore how resilient businesses succeed, and celebrate our collective ability to reinvent, innovate and create.  We believed this conversation is timely, given these capabilities are not only required every day but were crucial skills to harness over the last 2 years.
The Whitby Chamber of Commerce is proud to host this back in person one-day conference, presented by MicroAge Peterborough-Whitby and their partner Datto. MicroAge provides IT support and solutions for businesses, that want to be proactive, productive, and more secure with their IT. In partnership with Datto, they provide data protection solutions that go beyond backup and recovery to provide full business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR).
