In uncertain times, your business needs to be strong enough to weather whatever the market throws at it, but also adaptable enough to take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves.

At the 2017 PROFIT Small and Medium Enterprise Outlook Breakfast, presented in partnership with American Express in Toronto earlier this month, founders and experts shared their strategies and advice for building an organization that’s both nimble and resilient.
