Most people believe if you work harder, you’ll be more successful. But that is wrong – 75 per cent of job success is determined not by a person’s intelligence, but by their ability to maintain an optimistic outlook and manage stress in a positive way.

Shawn Achor has spent years studying Fortune 500 companies to undercover the linkages between a positive mindset and business performance. He will be sharing these insights with the Calgary business community at Alchemy, a gala event put on by the Calgary Chamber. Alchemy is the Chamber's newest experience. We will turn Telus Spark into a place where diverse elements connect, co-mingle and clash, and new ideas are sparked and fused.

Attend the Chambers 2012 Gala - Alchemy to listen to Achor speak on how you can transform the way you work and live.

Want to see more? Watch Achor explain how you can use his research to advance your career and improve your company’s performance at TEDx Bloomington.

For networking to be effective, you need to meet the right type of people who will grow and connect your business.

Before each event, attendees are encouraged to contact us to tell us about their business, their challenges, and the type of people they’d like to connect with to overcome these problems and grow their business. With this information, we get to work placing people at each attendees table who will meet their networking needs.

As an added bonus, event attendees will be treated to a talk by Ranil Herath, president of the DeVry Institute of Technology, on how to use Linkedin for business networking.

Register for focused business networking at its best.

Marriott Calgary Hotel
110 9th Avenue SE

Canada’s economic success is tied to the competiveness of its cities.

Over the next several years Canada’s growing population will become more urbanized, and Canadian cities will have to meet the challenges related to this growth. That means cities need to be innovative, strategic and efficient if they plan to continue to be hubs of economic activity.

To pave the way for a cleaner, better and brighter future, the Calgary Chamber and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce are joining forces to present Smart Cities of the Future, a conference that will examine how Canada’s competitiveness can be improved by addressing the core challenges facing its urban centres — issues such as transportation, infrastructure, urban planning, governance, sustainability and energy.

Join us as we discuss how cities can become innovative and prosperous centres that fuel sustainable economic development and a high quality of life.
