On November 30 at 7 p.m., Renowned Author Bill Strickland will be speaking about his crusade that inspired others to dream bigger and to achieve the extraordinary in Pittsburgh; a city that experienced widespread unemployment following the decline of the steel industry. If you are interested attending this FREE event you can still reserve your seat(s) at www.mohawkcollegeenterprise.ca. We already have more than 2,000 seats reserved!

If you’re unable to attend, I encourage you to join me (@jwestera) on Twitter the night of the event. I will be using the Twitter hashtag #hamiltonnow. A “hashtag” connects tweets allowing people to easily find and aggregate tweets related to a topic or event. This is a great opportunity to get involved with a community of people that want to see Hamilton’s future expand and succeed.

Hosting the event is the City of Hamilton and Jobs Prosperity Collaborative (JPC) Hamilton. JPC is a group of about 65 members who promote Hamilton’s prosperity through job creation and retention. If you share similar interests and goals with the JPC, come out and support the vision and help JPC make it possible to create future job opportunities for Hamilton.
