Economic guru Ron Robichaud to suggest how to maximize potential for profit in small businesses

During Morning Conference for Entrepreneurs and Co-operators

ron robichaudSUMMERSIDE – Sept. 30, 2015 – “The participants at the Morning Conference for Entrepreneurs and Co-operators, Thursday, Oct. 22, will get to fill up on a delicious breakfast and to find out details about our 2016 entrepreneurial awards competition. However, they’ll also get to hear a magnificent conference by Ron Robichaud, one of Atlantic Canada’s most prominent business development gurus, on the theme ‘Maximizing the profit potential of your business’.”

With those words of encouragement, Raymond J. Arsenault, coordinator of the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE), invites all French-speaking business people to register to this morning conference, which will run from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the Centre Belle-Alliance in Summerside.

The conference will be presented free of charge, on the occasion of Co-op and Small Business Weeks. Innovation PEI, CBDC Central PEI, Wellington Rural Action Centre, La Belle-Alliance and the CCAFLIPE are sponsoring the event, which is also an integral part of La Belle-Alliance’s Pumpkin Festival.

Robichaud, from C&R Care and Consulting Ltd. of Nova Scotia, notes, “Every business exists to make an operating profit. Without operating profits, a business will not survive. Yet, surprisingly, many small business owners seem willing to accept very modest net profits, often less than two per cent. We use a unique approach that simplifies the process, a method that was conceived to maximize the profit potential of all businesses, regardless of their size.”

So far, he has used his simplified process to help more than 350 businesses throughout Canada; they have attained results that he considers formidable. “Come and listen and observe this unique process that will certainly create a positive transition in the management and success of your business,” he promises.

Participants are urged to bring their own financial information to evaluate their current situation and to use their newly acquired skills to improve their financial results.


It is quite evident that Robichaud, who has more than 30 years of experience in business, manufacturing, finances, management of small businesses, community development and municipal government, has mastered a combination of entrepreneurial skills. He has been the owner and manager of several businesses. As assistant director of a CBDC, he offered consultation and loan services to a variety of small businesses. In addition, he has given courses in small business management and economics at Université Sainte-Anne and Acadia University.

He served as president of the Canadian Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship and of the Professional Standards Committee of APEC-IBIZ, which certifies international business counsellors.

An accomplished and passionate trainer, Robichaud has delivered workshops on financial management for small businesses to thousands of participants nationally and internationally. An in-demand speaker, he is also co-author of several works.
