The Importance of Having Good Neighbours

Not only is it important to have good neighbours where you live but even more important for your business.  When you are in a strip mall and have neighbours on the other side of the wall from you, having a bad neighbor can be the difference between a thriving business or a struggling one, especially if you are in the business of serenity. 

7 Reasons Winnipeg is a Great Place for Your Business

Yes, it can pretty “cool”.  January and February are no strangers to -40 degrees.  We can get a lot of snow. Yes, we do have to plug-in our cars.

On March 6, I was invited to speak at the 2015 CORFAC International Spring Conference in Miami, Florida. The 100+ attendees heard topics ranging from technology, the economy, best practices and building relationships – with emphasis on the change that is taking place in the real estate industry.

It’s an exciting time to be a Winnipegger, as our city seems to be going through a renaissance. Iconic buildings have been built over the past 10 years including the MTS Centre, the Manitoba Hydro tower, and the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

I was recently invited by First Canadian Title to be the guest speaker at their Roundtable Luncheon. The event took place at Hy’s Restaurant in downtown Winnipeg and was attended by approximately 50 senior commercial lawyers and executive-level lenders. It was a great opportunity for me to present Shindico’s Winter update, to discuss projects that are currently underway and to give a sense of what’s coming down the pipeline.
