Learning Day: People

Accelerator “People” Day provides a full-day session focused on what most consider the toughest part of scaling a business. Led by certified Gazelle's Scaling Up Trainer and EO Calgary member, Les Hayes.

In this session, we will cover:

*Do I have the RIGHT people in each seat?

*Are the RIGHT people doing the RIGHT things?

*Do I have the best talent in the market for the pay we provide?

After lunch, our panelists will share their their story and their take on working with the people in their organizations. They will then take questions from the moderator and the EO accelerators. Gain valuable insights from:
