FEATURING GUEST SPEAKER LAURIE GUTHRIE,
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST
"Building a Successful Business Ambassador Program"
Fredericton, like many communities, lacked the resources to engage in the expensive game of investment attraction. The quandary was how could a small city with one economic development officer and a modest budget address this challenge? As the Knowledge-based Capital of
New Brunswick, Fredericton also had an advantage: being home to a large number of local companies doing global business. In 2002, Laurie Guthrie saw an opportunity to leverage and engage these corporate citizens to promote Fredericton while abroad for meetings and travels, and so the idea of the Fredericton Business Ambassador Program was born.
Attend to learn how the program was pioneered, and how a team of 720 people were inspired to promote their city on the global stage!
