Speaker:
Bill Currie, Partner, Deloitte

Moderator:
Marshall Platt, Partner, Deloitte

Deloitte is committed to bringing our clients insightful perspectives on key issues that affect the manufacturing industry.  

 Canada faces a serious and growing productivity challenge that threatens our next generation’s standard of living. As with many economic sectors, manufacturing’s weak productivity growth has been driven by lagging investment in research & development, machinery & equipment and information and communications technology. An even greater concern may be that, due to a lack of benchmarking, many Canadian firms are overconfident and unaware they are under-investing in their futures. In this session, Deloitte Canada’s Vice Chair Bill Currie will discuss how business leaders can overcome manufacturing sector productivity challenges by developing realistic perceptions and by focusing on growth.

Who should attend?
This event is designed to help senior executives in the manufacturing industry understand Canada’s productivity challenge in manufacturing and recognize the attitudes and behaviours they need in order to lead globally competitive businesses.
