Paul Mahon delivered a fascinating keynote address that touched on the long history of Great West Lifeco and discussed the myriad of challenges facing companies, not just in life insurance, but many industries - technology and innovation, globalization, demographic shifts and the importance of putting the customer first.

The informative and thought provoking keynote address was well received by audience members. Conviron congratulates Great West Lifeco on this historic 125th anniversary and extends its appreciation to the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce for hosting this event.
