Nearly 540 successful entrepreneurs have attended QuantumShift over the past 14 years, including Cameron Heaps, co-founder of Steam Whistle Brewery. Heaps is passionate about growing the craft brewing industry in Canada and says QuantumShift provided him with a unique opportunity to rethink his company’s operating structure.
“When you’re a young company in a high growth phase, often the structures aren’t keeping up. This was an opportunity to step back and start identifying where the cracks are and how to set up your business to sustain growth,” said Heaps.
“Surrounding myself with like-minded entrepreneurs would give me the opportunity to join and build relationships with people that could potentially help me to run my business better through their experience. The one thing I am not afraid of is surrounding myself with people that know more than me. When I was younger and training horses, my parents would always say “If you want to become a better horse trainer, you need to surround yourself with better horse trainers.” It is something I live by, and have never forgotten.” – Jerry Myer.
