Brown and Hughes discuss how these leading companies have excelled in the Canadian and global marketplace.  Their management teams lead the way in technology, sustainability, branding & marketing, mergers & acquisitions, funding growth, succession planning, leadership, globalization, attracting & retaining talent, and in productivity.  Throughout this book, senior business executives explain in their own words how these issues are being addressed and leveraged to their advantage, providing insights not only into their own businesses but also into the strategies that entrepreneurs and executives in enterprises large and small need to master, regardless of their specific product or service.
