She is the author of two books, the number one bestselling book, Persuasion and the best-selling release, All In.

Can anyone be an entrepreneur? Arlene’s emphatic answer is “Yes”. In this talk, one of Canada’s most high profile business women distills a lifetime of experience to reveal everything you need to know – and do – to start, to run, and to grow a great business. On stage, she displays a palpable and infectious belief in the entrepreneurial spirit; she reminds us of the major contributions Canadians have made to international business and the entrepreneurial tradition.

EPL is inviting thought-leaders from a variety of industries and around a variety of topics to share their insights, ideas, experiences and viewpoints, with the goal of helping us purposefully build better organizations, neighborhoods and communities.
