Over the years, it has become obvious that growth does not in any way occur in isolation especially in a world which many have described as a global village. Events in one part of the world have the potential to significantly affect growth prospects in another.

In the light of this, a marketing communications company, Prompt Communications Limited is organising an event to provide an opportunity to highlight how countries are connected to one another and the mechanism around positioning key sectors to become contributors to the economy of a country.

Dubbed as The Talk – Toronto Edition, it is an event platform to discuss four main pillars considered as vital for national development, which are Arts (culture), trade, investment and people.

The conversation will explore the various modes, sequences and forms these pillars can contribute to national development, directly or indirectly. 

The Talk – Toronto Edition is scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 17, at the Metro Hall Rotunda from 2 pm to 6 pm.

The event is in partnership with the City of Toronto, Royal Commonwealth Society – Toronto Branch, Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce, Black Business and Professional Association and Golden Key 360 Group.  

In his comments, the Curator of the event, Chris Koney highlighted the need for closer collaborations between countries on all fronts.

“In fact, no country is an island at this point in time and it remains a fact. For the security of nations and their citizens, it is important to share information across the board.

“There is a need to synergy building, partnerships and joint projects between countries and their citizens to ensure development takes place,” he said. 

Mr Koney added “The Talk – Toronto Edition is just about identifying ways creative arts, trade, investment and people can and is aiding the development of the economy of countries with the focus on Ghana and Canada.”
