A webseries dedicated to entrepreneurship featuring Eastern Townships entrepreneurs

Sherbrooke, April 5th, 2016 – The offices of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Eastern Townships branch is proud to launch the webseries Dîner d’affaires : vitrine sur la vocation entrepreneuriale’s second season (in French only).

The webseries’ six episodes feature successful entrepreneurs and managers from Sherbrooke, Granby and Magog known for their business acumen, vision, perseverance and audacity. In a professional and friendly business lunch setting,, we get to know these entrepreneurs who, through an informal exchange with their business consultant, spill the beans on their successes, challenges, dreams and ambitions.

The original idea for the webseries emerged from Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Eastern Townships’ branch. “As privileged business advisors to local entrepreneurs, every day we have the opportunity to collaborate with visionary and passionate business persons. It is important to foster success in business, and that is why we made these videos. Their purpose is to allow as many people as possible to get to know these inspiring and dynamic individuals,” explains Mr. Guy Fauteux, Regional Vice President.

“The promotion of entrepreneurship must be continuous as it is a key engine of growth,” says Mr. Fauteux. “We need to acknowledge the know-how of our creators of wealth and highlight their entrepreneurial successes by telling their stories. This initiative can then provide inspiration to emerging talent,” he adds.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is committed to the growth of the organizations it assists. This initiative, which allows successful models to shine, is part of the firm’s mission to play a leading role in the emergence and development of Canadian businesses.

Produced by Lacasse/Riendeau, a Sherbrooke-based company, the weekly webisodes of the series’ second season will be posted at:  rcgt.com/en/business-lunch with the last one being made available on May 10th, 2016.
