AGM 2017: Western DMO

On November 15 2017, Go Western Newfoundland, our tourism partner on the West Coast, held their Annual General Meeting in Stephenville. This year, the AGM brought together nearly 80 tourism providers eager to maintain the quality and diversity of tourism. As a member, RDÉE TNL went on site to participate in exchanges and continue networking with other members in the industry. This year on the agenda: the presentation of Go Western’s statements of accounts, the election of new Board members, the presentation of 2016 tourism statistics for the West Coast, and the marketing strategy by the province. Note that this year, Go Western held a silent auction showcasing several local tourism products which was a great initiative.

Coping With Change

On November 30th 2017 at the Wabush Hotel, RDÉE TNL, in collaboration with the AFL, organised a dinner conference on “Coping with change”.

To make the conference more appealing for the francophone community of Western Labrador, RDÉE TNL’s Economic Development Officer in Labrador formed a partnership with Rio Tinto IOC, the only active mining company in Labrador, with the objective of sharing their experience of how they coped with the changes during the cyclical crises they had overcome.

Thus, Mr. Van Alexopoulos, Rio Tinto IOC’s Director of Finance and Supply Chain, agreed to give the lecture and his company covered all related costs.

Carol Auto, one of the biggest francophone enterprises in the region had also accepted to sponsor the dinner conference.

The AFL conducted an intense information campaign among its members to invite them to participate in the dinner conference.

The conference went very well with the participation of about fifteen Francophones. The presentation was of great interest, the speaker showed thanks to which strategy the threats were overcome. He explained how the continuous innovation made it possible to reduce the costs of production and to increase the productivity to survive against the significant decrease in the price of iron.

Confronting reality, making an uncompromising examination of one’s strengths and weaknesses, improving the former and reducing the latter is the right attitude to strengthen one’s resilience and to overcome the perils revealed by change.

Innovation is not only technological, it refers to all areas including processes, ways of doing things, ways that habits can render obsolete and ineffective.

Rio Tinto IOC’s success in continuous improvement has enabled it to survive the 2014 mining crisis and continue to employ 2,400 workers in the region.
