2020 will be the biggest year for the competition yet as we celebrate a major milestone – the 15th year anniversary of JDC West. For the past 15 years, competitors have experienced their own unique, personal growth development through JDC West and have gone on to make monumental and meaningful contributions to business communities across Canada. JDC West 2020 will take a look back to commemorate the competition’s roots while presenting new, innovative challenges that will help push the competition to new heights with our theme “Growing Forward”.
Coincidentally, this theme is very relatable to the business landscape today. More than ever, businesses are being pushed to innovate or fail. There is no room to rest on your laurels as technology and globalization are dictating a very competitive environment. However, in order to truly innovate in a way that is healthy, you must look to the past and measure your performance because whatever can be measured, can be improved. It is also important to not make excuses with this data, be vulnerable in your growth mindset and be willing to accept feedback to identify true areas of potential growth.
