In 2016, we marked the fifth annual event which was held on Friday, Oct. 21 at St. Paul's Church in Leaskdale. More than 120 members of the north Durham business and business support community attended the event. Key speakers included Peter Colpitts from Colpitts Design Inc.; Leslie Forsythe from Forsythe Family Farms 2009 Inc; and Joanne Richter from the Second Wedge Brewing Co.). The speakers inspired the audience with their stories about how to build a successful business in north Durham. The event opened with the launch of the north Durham video, which showcases the unique economic development assets of the area.

This event is hosted, each year, by the Economic Development Committees of the townships of Uxbridge, Scugog, and Brock, in partnership with The Regional Municipality of Durham.
