Grow Your Business
The phrase “birds of a feather” has special meaning at MBOT. By collaborating with like-minded business people, you have the opportunity to share ideas with peers, customers and other world-class business leaders.
When conducting business we sometimes feel we are in a vacuum. With our heads down and nose to the grindstone, we lose perspective of the world around us. MBOT provides awareness on pressing issues facing businesses today and the tools to navigate them in today’s environment.
Great leaders know you are either part of the solution or part of the problem. By engaging others through MBOT and creating solutions together, progress is guaranteed. Together, we can achieve success by sharing knowledge with our fellow MBOT members to promote a healthy and prosperous business community for Mississauga.
The only thing that remains constant is change. Information now doubles every three years. Stay on top of changing information and techniques through the many educational programs created by MBOT.
Corporate Social Responsibility
CSR is not only about being ‘green’. It’s more than that. It’s also about a contribution to your people, your planet and the profit of your business. MBOT is a proud supporter of the CSR and sustainability model and encourages its members to become the best corporate citizens in the world.
MBOT solicits knowledgeable business minds to deliver quality education and present-day thinking to members. With top speakers from Mississauga and surrounding areas, critical and timely information is made available to the membership.
Professional Development Workshops
Show a man how to fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Nothing replaces hands-on experience, and our many strategic and hands-on workshops are invaluable to members.
MBOT is more than networking. Signature events, including the Mayor’s Annual Address Luncheon, Business Awards of Excellence, Chairs Gala and Annual Golf Day, are high-profile, first-class events that draw the who’s who of Mississauga’s business community as well as local, provincial and federal politicians.
We all know we do business with people we know, like and respect. Without networking, business can be a lonely road. MBOT provides opportunities to meet your peers, potential suppliers and customers in an informal, relaxed atmosphere.
Many members offer member-to-member discount programs. In addition, MBOT has procured lucrative discount programs from a variety of different sectors. From group insurance to telecommunications and energy, an MBOT membership pays for itself and more.
