Do you think we may have overstepped the line with such a bold statement? On April 5th, our outside perspective is not coming from an Economist but rather a fellow Canadian businessman and speaker, John Foresi, CEO of Venterra Realty. The 20th century was America’s economic success story. Yet, as we continue to advance through the 21st century, America is poised to realize even greater political and economic success. Yes, there is tremendous uncertainty these days with President Donald Trump; however, as one billionaire investor and philanthropist said, “…you just look at where we go, milestone after milestone.  Never bet against America.”  

As Canadian business leaders with vested interests in the US Economy both professionally and personally you’ll want to join us for a thought provoking presentation and a fun evening of cocktails and networking.

Our agenda for the evening:

  • 5:00PM to 5:30PM, Registration and check-in
  • 5:30PM to 6:30PM, listen to our keynote speaker, John Foresi, as he addresses why he believes America is getting structurally stronger, on a relative basis and why America is where you need to focus for potential business and investment returns in the coming decades.
  • 6:30PM to 8:00PM, connect with PEO’s Leadership Community and enjoy a cocktail reception with wine, cheese and plentiful hors d’oeuvres
