October 30, 2008  By Administrator

left2October 30, 2008 – Win-door North America 2008 is coming to the Metro Toronto Convention
Centre, North Building from November 11-13, 2008. Following a
successful show in 2007, Win-door has been listening to its visitors
and exhibitors.

New Educational Format

For 2008, the CWDMA Education Committee and the Win-door Show Committee
have been working hard to bring new ideas to the show. A new “Education
Pavilion” is being created on the show floor, and this year, the
seminars will be held during show hours to get away from the “Early
Morning Blues” suffered by so many. They will be held throughout the
day so people can plan their schedules accordingly. The seminars will
include the following topics:

“Energy Star” – hear the latest on the program, find out
how your firm can comply, and learn about the benefits available to
participating manufacturers. Speakers will include CWDMA Technical
Consultant J. Baker, Office of Energy Efficiency’s S. Hopwood, and P.
Lewin, Vinyl Window Designs. This seminar will be presented at 12:30 pm
on Wednesday, November 12th in the new Education Pavilion on the show

“Rev up your R&D efforts with help from Revenue Canada”
-Lynda Sturgeoff, Research and Technology Manager, Canada Customs and
Revenue Agency, and her colleagues Richard Lee and Gary Grieco will
deliver a 1-hour seminar on Wednesday, November 12th at 10:30 am in the
Education Pavilion. The presentation will primarily try to de-mystify
the grants available for research and assist interested parties on how
to apply and what is covered by the grants. Financial criteria will
also be covered. Learn how to make R & D “pay for itself”.

A seminar on Leadership, Self Management and Performance,
to be presented by Bob McHardy, SELFMANAGEMENT Group, will be offered
on Thursday, November 13, 2008 at 10:30 am in the Education Pavilion.
The focus of the presentation is self management as the #1competency of
successful people; performance equation and the elements of
performance; coaching vs. coaxing; accountability and responsibility
and how to coach for both; how to coach for self commitment and how to
get people to do what you are paying them to do.
