  2. David Bloom began as a pharmacist at SDM, becoming an associate within a year, and within 16 years, he was the president and CEO. While CEO, shoppers drug mart more than doubled the number of stores in Canada. He grew earnings tenfold and quadrupled Sales. It would be great to meet him.

  3. Chip Wilson is my favorite -he is carrying a great idea of what people can aspire through healthy lifestyle .Buying a products that are environmentally friendly make consumers feel good .Promoting a self-awareness is something different in athletic retail world . Inspiring, creative , refreshing = success!!!

  4. Hey Andrew…

    Please connect with me offline and I will get you a ticket.



  5. Life worth living…

    Title that makes you think constructively, focuses on important vital reasons of why we want what we want and taps into motivation phenomena.
    Who do we admire and why do we admire them? What does that tell us?
    Judy Elder has a characteristic that speaks directly to my heart.
    Definition of success is as broad as a definition of art but in my books success is a mission for human betterment.
    Judy’s ability to tackle the understanding of ambition and it’s place in womens workforce is just another area that need some light to shed. Amass energy to urge to find clarity and courage to speak up is a unique ability of a great mentor and influencer who manages to help us evolve in greater understanding of own inner-work.
    By trying to understand and help herself she helped others along and it was never a solo mission for her it was a collective team effort.
    Judy is a leader that is for me more that an expert in her field, she is an inspiration.
    Someone once said that ‘there is nothing without the dull persistence’ but to pull trough it we need a lot of hope to gives us courage and keep our spirit alive to become a part of greater more rewarding life, we need more people like Judy.

  6. There are so many great names on the inductee list that it’s hard to choose just one that has inspired me – so I’ll choose 2:

    Don Watt – has demonstrated the effectiveness of simplicity and singularity of purpose in modern retail merchandising. More is not … well, more.

    Christine Magee & Stephen K. Gunn – they understood the marketing adage “Find a category that doesn’t have a dominant player, and become #1” (Reis and Trout, I believe)
