The Canada experience

A lot happened in Canada we spent the last two days looking at some amazing businesses that were run by equally amazing people. We visited two guys who are in the field of crop insurance and agri finance . They have some very novel ideas on the subjects , they basically deconstructed the insurance schemes and have come up with a system that deals with the risk and therfore the premiums to be paid, in a nut shell the better the manager you are the better your discount.

We then heard from a busines that had been through the ringer and there chairman told of how good corporate governance combined with good structure, hard work and determination can pay off. There were some good lessons for us all about persiverence and integrity and how even in today's dog eat dog busines world good values are still important.

On lighter note one of the guys managed to get some photos of the northern lights.

  1. It will be interesting to see how much of these new experiences you will be able to utilise in your own business.It is good to see that there are still business people who value integrity as they build their businesses in the "every man for himself"society that we live in today.
