The countdown continues. Only three weeks to Durham’s premiere business event, the Durham Business Summit. And now there’s a new website that provides all of the details (plus registration) in one convenient spot. It’ll be a full and terrific day of inspiration, learning and networking.
And don’t forget that keynote speaker Frank O’Dea has written two books, both available at WPL. When All You Have Is Hope is his first book, written in 2008. It tells his inspiring rags-to-riches story, detailing his rise from a homeless alcoholic living on the streets of Toronto to co-founder of the Second Cup coffee juggernaut. Do the Next Right Thing: Surviving Life’s Crises is his second book, written in 2013. In it, Frank provides techniques and strategies to help deal with crises – and a big part of that is recognizing that a crisis may simply represent change, and not necessarily change for the worst. “The crisis is a curve in the road, not a dead end.”
