Join senior management teams from fluid power companies across the country at the 2020 CFPA AGM, taking place in St. Andrews by the Sea from June 10-13. We will be staying at the Algonquin, one of Canada’s most luxurious and legendary resorts. Rich in history, the resort has been meticulously restored to its original splendor.
The CFPA AGM revolves around the exceptional collection of keynotes from leaders in the fluid power and economic industries. Each Pillar of the Canadian Fluid Power Association is represented by an industry professional with insightful words on leadership, economics, industrial regulations, marketing and education, to name a few.
Market insight is a hot topic at the AGM, and as a leader in your industry, you want to know about microeconomic trends that affect your fluid power industry, as well as the macroeconomic conditions affecting Canada, North America and the rest of the world. We will have more than one keynote speaker addressing market insight relevant to our specific industry and beyond.
Today we hear a lot in the news about cybersecurity and data breaches from big companies like Google, LifeLabs and Facebook. But cyber threats effect companies of all sizes. As more connected devices are introduced into critical infrastructure applications, commercial and industrial facilities and smart homes around the world, a standard threshold of safeguards will be required to operate effectively.
It will be up to the industry to drive what that standard should be. Max Wandera, director of Eaton’s Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, will talk about why it’s so important for companies to be thinking about cybersecurity.
Our Opening Keynote: Laugh It Off: Harnessing Humour at Work, will teach your team how to use humour to reduce their level of stress, improve their mental health and increase their productivity. Using the core values of improvisation and over 20 years of experience as a comedian, Robert Hawke will show your team how to use laughter as their secret weapon at work. Rob is a cancer survivor who learned these techniques to overcome depression and anger and will inspire you to overcome all of life’s challenges as well!
Networking is a key benefit of association membership and this is the perfect opportunity to form new relationships with senior leaders in the fluid power industry. With the right mix of business topics and networking you will leave the AGM better informed, connected, and engaged in a host of new ideas.
