Special Story from The Art of Sales: Alicia Bacchus shares how she got there and why its import

 It was amazing a day of learning and networking at The Art of Sales on Wednesday, December 7th at the John Bassett Theatre in Toronto.

 It always amazing experience listening and learning from amazing speakers.

 On this day I had additional that made it very special day. In the afternoon session a young lady sat beside me and Randy Ramadhin who my VIP Guest for the day. We introduced ourselves to her and she was excited to meet us.

During the afternoon we had some exercises the speakers were ask us to do so Randy and I had continued our conversation with her. We share out insight and experience on being entrepreneurs and teaching financial literacy through Cash flow game we hold in the Toronto, predicated on Robert T Kiyosaki's books.

She was very intrigued and willing to learn more.

 In Alicia Bacchus own words her story below on how she got to the The Art of Sales that day.

 "I joined the Canadian Association of Food Professionals (CAFP) while I was at Humber. I received an email of a contest they had to win tickets for the Art of.

 I never attended this event and thought I give the contest a shot so I edited one of my old college paper and submitted it to the essay contest.

 On Sunday before the event I saw I won tickets to The Art of Sales and fortunately I was not scheduled for work on that day.

 I was excited. I opened the plus one ticket to everyone at work and current students at Humber. Unfortunately, everyone I know had to work and Humber Students were busy with finals.

I am always looking for opportunities to learn and build new relationships. I enjoy events such as the
Art of. I find it very insightful, as I am thinking about my future career.

and Yes I still can't believe I won those tickets to The Art of!"

Book Review: Everyone's an Artist


        Jim Pagiamzis Review:
         " It was an amazing book to read. The most exciting part was the story behind the fall and rise of  Dufferin Mall in Toronto,Ontario (Canada)."

The Summary

Discover what the greatest minds already know.

Can a Canali-clad million-dollar banker learn anything from a paint-stained artist? Definitely. Especially now. Creativity and creative thinking aren’t just important for business, they’re at the heart of scientific and medical advances, social and political and improvement, and personal achievement and satisfaction. Connection, communication, imagination and originality are just as important as our ability to calculate and code. The notion that everyone should be an artist doesn’t mean we all have to turn a slab of marble into the next Venus de Milo. (Where would we put all those statues anyhow?)
But we can nurture any inherent spark we do have by doing what artists do. In Everyone’s an Artist (or at least they should be), you’ll discover how artists’ habits, attitudes and behaviours can help you foster your own creativity, innovation, communication and problem solving. And you’ll learn how these artists’ tools can help you to achieve your goals, develop something new or be successful in your professional and personal life. In other words, you’ll learn how you can think like an artist.
