Event Description:
Reminder to please arrive early for this morning's Breakast. As previous mentioned in newsletters and communications, if you could arrive by at least 6:45 AM to register and ensure some networking time, that would be great!

Please also take a look below at the agenda to view the 8 different sectors you will be asked to split up into. Please review and determine which sector best suits you. If you have questions or are unsure, don't worry, we have facilitators who will help you.

One of the most significant economic development studies ever undertaken in Orléans is about to launch!
And YOU have an opportunity to share your input and shape a meaningful plan to develop Ottawa’s east-end economy by attending this Breakfast, the first of three focus groups, being conducted by Doyletech Corporation, in order to identify growth opportunities in Orléans and other East-End communities.
Thanks to a grant from the City of Ottawa, the Orléans Chamber of Commerce has hired Doyletech Corporation, a recognized national and international expert in economic development. It was founded in 1982 by Denzil Doyle, who is often referred to as the grandfather of Ottawa's technology sector. Once all three focus groups have been conducted, Doyletech Corp., will then analyse these growth opportunities in our East-End of Ottawa and Orléans. 

Catherine Fair, who was previously scheduled to present at this breakfast, will instead do her presentation on Networking in New Environments, at our October Breakfast!
