On September 14/15, 2013 PEO Members and Alumni will once again enter and engage in something that is Physical, Fun, and requires some strong teamwork and commitment. Yes you heard me correctly an empha-sis on teamwork – great leaders like you are willing to allow others to draft behind them so they can also look like great cyclists.

Understanding the ROI of Social Media and Getting Started Today!
All major industries and firms (B2B or B2C) are in the middle of a major shift to understand potential areas of revenue exist within digital and social platforms while finding innovative ways to grow their businesses.
In order to continue accelerated growth, be a privately held company or publicly traded Fortune 500 Company, forward-thinking business leaders must quickly learn how to leverage and embrace digital and social media tools better than their competitors.
Digital competency is not something just for ‘digital specialists’ but now a core component of leadership.
You cannot understand digital without being part of it. Digital and social platforms are interactive by nature. To understand them business leaders must use them. Not simply by reading a white paper or a blog post but understanding them at least at a high level within the precious time at their disposal.
There are numerous digital and social media platforms out there but we will start with LinkedIn.
How a President can fully leverage LinkedIn as a means to drive business development and thought leadership for your organizations.

The economic and political uncertainty now fueling financial market volatility likely will linger through 2013, withpublic sector retrenchment and private deleveraging keeping a number of debt-heavy European nations in recession – and in the headlines. U.S. economic news has brightened with the pick-up in housing market activity and car sales, but overall growth will be tempered as Washington moves to reduceits US$1 trillion budget shortfall.New world powerhouses are expected to regain some of their recent loss in momentum, with growth reaching8% in China, 6% in India and averaging around 4% in the major Latin American economies.
While many Canadian businesses, including those in the auto and lumber industries, are benefitting from the more upbeat household spending mood south of the border, export earnings will be constrained by rapidly increasing U.S. natural gas production and pipeline capacity bottlenecks.Slower global growth has also taken the edge off of the boom in many commodity markets, although robust emerging market demand will continue to provide important support.With net tourist earnings moving farther into deficit, our overall trade deficit in goods and services has moved to about $70 billion this year – a two-decade high of nearly 4% of GDP.
As in the U.S., government retrenchment will temper Canadian growth prospects through mid-decade.Unlike the U.S., our housing sector will lose momentum as activity recedes in a number of markets, particularly Vancouver and Toronto. Canadian employment, already at record highs, also will likely grow at a slower rate than in the U.S., where over 4 million jobs are still needed to get back to the pre-recession peak.In this environment, Canadian GDP will be hard-pressed to exceed 2% in 2013, lagging the U.S. trend for only the third time since the turn of the millennium.
U.S. and European monetary policy settings will remain highly accommodative. The Federal Reserve has indicated that its benchmark overnight rate may stay close to zero through mid-2015 unless U.S. economic circumstances improve substantially. Even though the Bank of Canada will get a new Governor next summer, monetary policy will remain unchanged with low inflation, lacklustre growth and currency strength keeping our central bank on the sidelines into 2014.Low interest rates continue to benefit borrowers, but present big challenges for pension funds, endowments and individuals saving for retirement.

At PEO, our business is your business.
With you as the leader in charge of growth, PEOs value to you is to help you identify and work through the critical challenges of managing all kinds of enterprise risk revenue growth, sustainability, strategy, business execution, people, customers, directors, etc.
Enterprise risk management (ERM) in business includes various methods and processes used by organizations to manage risks and seize opportunities related to the achievement of business objectives. ERM provides a framework for risk management which typically involves identifying particular events or circumstances relevant to the organization's objectives (risks and opportunities), assessing them in terms of likelihood and magnitude of impact, determining a response strategy, and monitoring progress. By identifying and proactively addressing risks and opportunities, business enterprises protect and create value for their stakeholders, including owners, employees, customers, regulators, and society overall. ERM can also be described as a risk-based approach to managing an enterprise, integrating concepts of internal control, and strategic planning.
