Up! Practical Sales Talks starts on January, 16 2019 with a success local entrepreneur sharing his sales story.

This practical and candid sales talks series by experts in the trenches has been a great success. “Not only is this a great business networking opportunity, it is also an inspiration to many local business owners”, says Teresa Shaver, Executive Director of Business Advisory Centre Durham (BACD). “Hearing the journey of a ‘now’ successful business owner and the trials and tribulations they had to go through allows us to feel like we can do it too”, adds Teresa.

This event series is a collaboration between BACD, Town of Whitby and Frank Auddino of Vitaliz Inc. and it has been so successful that it is now moving into its 3rd year.

The speaker for January 16th’s event is Adam Mitchell, President, Mitchell & Whale Insurance Brokers which is a business located in Whitby, Ontario. Register for January 16, 2019
