French-speaking business owners to learn how to increase their profits

During Ron Robichaud workshop April 28

Ron Robichaud 2016 lowresSUMMERSIDE – April 7, 2016 – All French-speaking business owners and managers of PEI, whether they are just starting their career or approaching retirement, are invited to participate in an extremely informative workshop entitled “How To Increase My Profits” with entrepreneurial guru Ron Robichaud Thursday, April 28, at 10 a.m. at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside. A meal will follow the two-hour presentation.

Throughout the years, the guest speaker, a partner of C&R Care and Consulting of Nova Scotia, has worked with numerous businesses throughout Atlantic Canada and beyond to help them get off on the right foot or to re-establish their footing after experiencing financial challenges. He has a number of clients here on PEI; he has also given a number of interesting workshops on the Island in recent years.

According to Robichaud, 80 per cent of companies throughout the world that survive beyond five years earn only modest profits of less than two per cent! Best-in-sector companies achieve five per cent and more in net profits.

“We implement and apply similar processes that best-in-sector companies utilize to achieve these results. With proper direction and business coaching, you can acquire skills that lead you to achieve these same results,” he says.

The speaker will suggest various ways that business owners and managers can use to reduce their expenses and increase their profits. Participants will learn how to determine where cuts can be made and how to make them.

This workshop is being organized through a partnership between CBDC Central PEI, the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI and the Wellington Rural Action Centre.

The registration fee is $10 for Chamber members and $15 for non-members. This fee covers both the workshop and the meal – a chicken stir-fry.

To register, contact Velma Robichaud at or 902-854-3439, Ext. 228, no later than April 22.



CUTLINE: Ron Robichaud, from C&R Care and Consulting in Nova Scotia, will be returning to PEI April 28 to give a two-hour workshop in French, entitled “How To Increase My Profits” at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside, starting at 10 a.m.
