ACTE attendees are key decision makers in their region and the ACTE Vancouver Executive Forum is the ideal opportunity for you to meet with other travel buyers to share best practices.  Starting with the Corporate Travel Buyer Round Table you'll be able to connect privately with other buyers over lunch to discuss the issues of the day.  

Then you’ll expand your knowledge among the other industry attendees during the educational program designed to keep you in the loop and well-positioned to make key decisions.  Cap off the day with a chance to further discuss what you've learned and to meet and connect with your business travel peers at the networking reception to follow.  In short, ACTE offers you unparalleled learning and networking in a stress free and friendly environment.

Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Successes
by David S. Fick
Entrepreneurship in Africa is a study of those entrepreneurs who have achieved success, wealth, and fame by organizing and directing a business undertaking in Africa. It is a story about successful entrepreneurs who have assumed risk in pursuit of profit, who have tried to conform to ethical business standards and who have tried to contribute to the economic development and improve the natural environment and the education, health, and welfare of their community and nation. The philosophies underpinning their economic success and their endeavors to improve their communities have been included whenever correspondence with the entrepreneurs related them. This book is a journey through the economic world of Africa. It is a search through Web sites, books, newspapers, and periodicals for entrepreneurs who have been successful in Africa, for the projects and policies that improve their road to opportunity, and for expert commentary on the best ways to accomplish the economic and social development of Africa. It is a self-educating dialogue through personal meetings, letters, e-mails, and phone calls with interested parties in Africa and around the world on the future well-being of the people living and working in Africa. It is meant to encourage a dialogue so that knowledge and ideas may be exchanged with the goal of improving Africa and the world. I hope that, by doing this, Africans and those who observe the region can learn from past mistakes and current successes and build a peaceful and better society for all of Africa's people.
