Ignite your business.  The 3rd Annual Business Thrives Conference launches November 21st.

While one of our Business Thrives leaders is completing the first Canadian circumnavigation of the Globe by helicopter, another is busy showing up on movie screens across the country. Two very different paths to success. You’ll hear them both at Business Thrives.

Master of Ceremonies

Steven Dengler is making history this summer with an epic adventure that’s taking him around the world in a helicopter—with his father as co-pilot. A Canadian entrepreneur with 20-plus years of leadership in the tech space, Steven is best known as the co-founder of XE, the world’s trusted currency authority. But it doesn’t stop there.
