Full house at the inaugural Sommet Performance 2016


On October 20 of this year at the Westin Hotel, Montreal, the Sommet Performance 2016 took place, and the event, held for the first time, was a great success! Perhaps you weren’t able to attend or you would like colleagues to be able to benefit as well. On April 27, 2017, we invite you to the Sommet Performance : le rappel.


More than 300 business leaders and decision-makers assembled on October 20 for an exchange of ideas about performance, a hot topic that will help in further promoting and positioning Quebec and Canada on the international scene, as the first two speakers of the day, journalist René Vézina and lawyer Raymond Bachand, mentioned. How to do things differently? Jean-Philippe Raîche, associate and vice president at Proaction International, brought the idea of KBI (Key Behavior Indicator) to the table. The afternoon got off to a creative start with Roch Fortin, international producer and filmmaker, who spoke about the importance of creativity in the workplace and, especially, concrete ways to put it into practice. Michel Coupal, UQAM professor and author, and Mathieu Legault, program director, followed with ideas about attitudes to adopt, impediments to performance, and predictions for the future… Last but not least, François Olivier, president of Transcontinental, shared a fascinating case study concerning performance vision and productivity within his organization.

Conceived and created by Proaction International, the event drew an impressive number of participants and generated media buzz. A case in point is Olivier Schmouker, a journalist with Les Affaires, who said:


He was referring specifically to Roch Fortin’s presentation.

“We are very happy with how the day went, and the attendees feel the same way, as the comments and survey results indicate,” said Denis Lefebvre, President and Chief Executive Officer of Proaction International.


fourThe involvement of partners such as the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec and Les Affaires et Manufacturiers et Exportateurs du Québec, as well as collaborators such as STIQ Maillage industriel, the Fédération des Plastiques et Alliances Compositites, FTQ Fonds régionaux, Aéro Montréal and the Conseil de la transformation alimentaire du Québec, assured a great participant diversity. This led to enriching networking opportunities and an atmosphere conducive to the exchange of best practices.
