Convoy Supply President Completes Elite Ivey Program
Surrey, British Columbia – Convoy Supply is pleased to announce that President and CEO Alma Garnett is among the 2018 graduates of QuantumShift, a unique leadership development program and network sponsored by Ivey Business School in London, Ontario, KPMG Enterprise, TD Commercial Bank, and The Globe and Mail.
Boosting entrepreneurial talent is critical for our country’s future. Helping private businesses grow and improve their productivity is critical to building a robust economy and a strong future. Ivey and KPMG realize this and for the 15th year, they invited a select group of entrepreneurs from across Canada to participate in QuantumShift, a rigorous weeklong program designed to provide tools to help business leaders accelerate the growth of their companies.
QuantumShift was developed for leaders of companies that are past the start-up stage and are ready to innovate. The program focuses on how to lead an enterprise through exponential growth; how to attract and retain the best employees; how to uncover obstacles that may be limiting growth; how to value a venture and use strategies for moving from business plan to financial proposition; and how to build a strong network of entrepreneurial peers to share best-practices.
With this graduating class, Alma Garnett joins over 620 successful entrepreneurs who have completed the QuantumShift program. An established and reputable leader, Ms. Garnett has a reputation for embracing the entrepreneurial spirit in everything she does. She is passionate about helping to drive innovation and change in the North American construction industry.
In describing her weeklong experience, Ms. Garnett said: “The QuantumShift program is transformative in countless ways. The faculty at Ivey, the sponsors, and the network of participants come together to truly explore the essence of leadership and the urgent need to develop organizational cohesion aimed at vibrant and sustainable growth in our businesses. The stretch for bold innovation is a hallmark of QuantumShift.”
