2. Flexsourcing - The New Work World

Speaker: Jeff Chorlton, P.Eng, MBA

Ninety-Eight Percent of the businesses in Canada have fewer than 100 employees. In the past 20 years, how we work has changed dramatically. Long ago, Western society came up with the notion of a 40 hour work week. Laws were passed around this number and now the Employment Standards Act is very clear about hours of work. The concept of one job equals a fixed number of hours often does not fit the small or mid-size business. With the use of technology and better management techniques, our jobs now require us to be more nimble.

Job security is a thing of the past. Organizations are forced to re-align to stay competitive and whether or not they want to keep staff, they often have no choice but to make changes in their workforce. Non-standard work hours and a lack of job security have thus become the norm.

So how do we re-invent ourselves to use these changes to our advantage? How do we build our own job security? Jeff Chorlton, President & CEO of Flexserv, will speak on how to take advantage of the structural inefficiencies between supply and demand of skilled staff in the small and mid-sized environment. Changing how you define your work life can lead to significant competitive advantage. Learn about Flexsourcing and how it has already begun to profoundly change the work environment.

Jeff spent the first half of his career consulting for large corporates and government, doing large scale IT strategies and implementations. By the end of his corporate life 18 years ago, his legacy was to have sold the largest engagement ever for PwC in Canada – a record that still stands today. Overall, Jeff sold $350 million in consulting and accounting work while at Accenture and PwC.

In 1999, Jeff joined the entrepreneurial world and went on to manage Canadian operations of an SAP integration firm that went public. He subsequently ran two other tech organizations and while doing so, noticed a gap in the corporate services market. As a result, he went on to found Flexserv in 2011.

John Mill LL.M. International Tax 

Author of: Hire Your Buyer: a Philosophy of Value Creation

John started his first small business 40 years ago. For 25 years he practiced tax litigation and tax planning. Ten years ago he noticed a common succession problem: many businesses had good cash flow but little transferable value thereby creating a value gap. A value gap means the the owner will not have sufficient retirement income. This presentation outlines the results of 10 years of intensive research into that problem.
