SUMMERSIDE — Four more speakers have been announced for the Greater Summerside Chamber of Commerce’s business forum at Slemon Park on Sept. 17.

“We are dazzled by the quality of our speakers,” said Jane Sharpe, the chamber’s executive director.

Speakers already announced include Don Mills, Paul McNeill, Alan Duncan and Jennifer Gillivan.

The additional speakers include the following:

- Jeff Poirier, President, Vector Aerospace Engine Services - Atlantic, who will speak about how employee engagement has been a key factor in Vector’s growth.

- Andrew Daggett, CEO, Town of Montague, who will outline the tactics Montague is using to revitalize its downtown.

- Doug Griffiths, co-author of the tongue-in-cheek book, “13 Ways To Kill A Community,” will address some of his most universal points.

- Darrin Mitchell, manager, Trout River Industries, will tell the story of how his company built a multi-million dollar business in rural P.E.I.

Sharpe says the day’s agenda will be about working together for the betterment of the business community.

“With many positive developments in the area these days, from the business confidence reflected by an influx of chain stores to the Port Authority’s development plan for the waterfront, speakers will provide individual businesses with inspiration on how to energize their own businesses and generate discussion about how we can better focus our efforts towards driving positive and prosperous change for our business community,” said Sharpe.

“The Way Forward” will be held at Slemon Park Hotel & Conference Centre on Sept. 17h and is sponsored by Slemon Park Hotel and Conference Centre and Innovation P.E.I., with support from Vector Aerospace Engine Services Atlantic and MacDougall Steel Erectors, Inc..
