The CHHMA (CHPTA) is pleased to be holding some exciting events in April and May.

First, on April 22nd, the CHHMA has Donald Cooper conducting a webinar on the topic: “Vision Critical: How to Manage, Innovate and Thrive in a Very Different Tomorrow!”

The presentation will take place from 1:00 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. ET, via Zoom Meeting.


Simply put, Donald works with business owners and managers who want to sell more, manage smarter, grow their bottom-line…and have a life!

Every industry is changing quickly. New technologies and disruptive business models are taking over. To succeed in this fast-changing and hyper-competitive world, we need clarity about the future of our business and our industry.

What businesses really need is an ‘Operational Vision’. A clear, specific and measurable statement of what we commit to become to be a more profitable and responsible market leader in 3 to 5 years. This ‘Operational Vision’ will be 6 points on one page that will be easily updated each year to keep us current, relevant and in the lead. From our 3 to 5-year Vision comes our annual ‘Mission’ and a detailed and specific ‘Commitment to Action’ that states what will be done, by whom, by when, measured how.

About the Speaker:

Donald Cooper works with businesses in over 40 industries around the world to create clarity of purpose, compelling customer value and experiences, management effectiveness and long-term profitability. He knows exactly what it is to be “in the trenches” and is respected by clients as a thought-leader and passionate visionary who clarifies complex challenges. For his transforming business insights and compelling presentation style, Donald has been inducted into the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame.
