“Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, Quebec’s leading accounting firm, is here to support the growth of local businesses by drawing from the talent of its 2,500 people and some 60 services. As our society’s prosperity necessarily involves businesses that demonstrate boldness, agility and drive, we are very pleased to partner with a television show that showcases the passion for entrepreneurship of people whose projects contribute to building an increasingly competitive economy,” noted President and CEO Emilio B. Imbriglio.

“For more than 65 years, our firm has been supporting Canadian entrepreneurs in achieving their business objectives. Our involvement in a program dedicated to entrepreneurship falls within the scope of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s very mission, which is to offer our wealth-creating businesses the means to attain their ambitions,” said Western Region Vice-President, Samuel Havida.

Three of the firm’s experts offer business people practical advice in their online capsules, which can be viewed on the Radio-Canada program website: http://dragon.radio-canada.ca/. Users will also be able to watch all five videos presenting sound advice from partners Karine Desrochers, Martin Deschênes and Éric Dufour, also a Regional Vice-President.

“For us, this association is another excellent way to support entrepreneurs in achieving their full potential for growth. Our partnership must continually seek to stimulate entrepreneurship and put the spotlight on business success. It goes without saying that Dans l’œil du dragon is a unique way to encourage our entrepreneurs’ creativity, innovation and performance,” observed Recovery & Reorganization Vice-President, Marc Bergeron.
