In the city: Ontario Entrepreneur Week

A dragon will be visiting Hamilton on Friday, June 13th but this is not the Game of Thrones type; as the dragon is much more formidable.  Here’s a hint: the dragon we are referring to is one of that you can find in a den on the CBC.  Arlene Dickinson, co-star on the Dragon’s Den, and ranked for seven years running by Profit magazine as one of the Top 100 Women Entrepreneurs, and considered to be one of the most powerful female business leaders in Canada, will be hosting a Breakfast Seminar as part of Ontario Entrepreneur Week.

If you are unable to attend this exciting event, you can still learn a thing or two from Arlene Dickinson.  The Mohawk College Library has a copy of her book, Persuasion: A new Approach to changing minds, available to borrow.  Through a collection of her own stories she explains how to be persuasive, both in the boardroom and in everyday life.  If you are interested in watching her in action, the library has copies of the Dragon’s Den on  DVD.

The library also has a subject guide to support this area of study.  The Small Business & Entrepreneurship guide offers a variety of resources including: books and e-books, market research, consumer research, articles, apps, websites, and entrepreneurship news.

Are you planning on attending the Breakfast Seminar Series?  If so, please be sure to tell us about your experience.
