Sherbrooke, February 4, 2015 – It is with pride that the Vice-president of the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Eastern Townships region, Mr. Réal Létourneau, launched yesterday the webseries called Dîner d’affaires : vitrine sur la vocation entrepreneuriale (in French only) at La Maison du Cinéma in Sherbrooke. Nearly a hundred people from the business community of the Eastern Townships gathered to celebrate the entrepreneurial dynamism of the region’s wealth creators.
The episodes of the webseries feature successful entrepreneurs and managers from Sherbrooke, Windsor, Granby, Magog and Bromont who are known for their business acumen, vision, perseverance and audacity. It is in the context of a both professional and friendly business lunch shared with a Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s expert that we learn to discover these experienced and ambitious entrepreneurs. They share the keys to their success while passing on to us their entrepreneurial passion and instinct for growth.
The original idea for the webseries emerged in the office of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Eastern Townships. “As privileged business advisors to many entrepreneurs who are dynamic, inspiring and passionate about the region, we wanted them to be heard and to pass on to us their entrepreneurial passion and energy to always want to go further, a key condition for our economic growth”, said Mr. Réal Létourneau.
“Entrepreneurship is a key issue. For our Firm, it is important to communicate the successes of our entrepreneurs and learn from their determination and passion for business. Ensuring entrepreneurial succession is essential for the sustainability of our wealth creators, and the webseries is a tool to encourage future managers to realize their entrepreneurial dreams and promote wealth creation”, added Mr. Létourneau.
Produced by Lacasse/Riendeau, a Sherbrooke company, series will be from now on webcasted (rcgt.com/en/business-lunch-2015/) on the basis of a brief per week until March 25, 2015.
