Since the trade injunction was launched, the Lloydminster Construction Association has offered to host a meeting in January for the two provinces to try and resolve their differences.


Why Every Organization Must Pay Attention to Disruptive Innovation

One simple disruptive innovation – autonomous vehicles – has huge cascading implications for insurance, health care emergency room capacity, car dealerships (both new and used), parking lot owners, taxi cab companies, city planners and auto executives.

Imagine the impacts of other trends – such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G wireless and Moore’s Law – when amplifying each other will have on companies, industries, society as a whole.

I'm looking forward to expanding on disruptive innovation at the Results Business Execution Summit in Kananaskis in February.

Calgary Construction Association Members receive $200 OFF this Summit.

*This offer is valid until December 31, 2017
