Bruce Firestone will be the keynote speaker at The Box 2014, an upcoming business event in Clarence-Rockland.
Mr. Firestone will be one of many speakers at the one-day event, to be held Oct. 10 at the River Rock Inn in Clarence-Rockland.
“I’m very happy to be part of this wonderful event that promotes innovative thinking. It will be a fun day,” Mr. Firestone said in a statement.
Mr. Firestone’s speech will share his knowledge and experience on how a small number of entrepreneurs can reshape a community.
The event will feature other speakers and a discussion panel, exhibition hall and other networking opportunities, and is meant to encourage entrepreneurs to think outside the box.
Free Form Fitness founder and recent OBJ Forty under 40 recipient Jean-Luc Boissoneault will be involved, as will Maplesoft Group executive vice-president Carl Nappert, a Forty under 40 winner in 2010.
The event will also raise funds for the Eastern Ontario chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
