From Start-Up to Acquisition: How a Successful Entrepreneur Navigated Corporate Transition and Discovered Her Calling
Karen Brookman, Chief Innovation Officer, West Canadian Digital Imaging

Visionary entrepreneur and Calgary native Karen Brookman launched her first business, Commonwealth Legal, as a small start-up in 2000. Over the next 14 years she strategically positioned the organization for incredible growth and in June 2014 the company was acquired by Ricoh Canada, a subsidiary of the global technology giant that boasts annual worldwide sales of over 21 billion USD. Over the next two years, Karen’s leadership guided Commonwealth Legal through a transition that resulted in the company growing more than 40% in the first two years after being acquired. Today Karen is embarking on a new chapter that will take her full circle back to her entrepreneurial roots and her native Calgary, as she sets out to join her family’s business, West Canadian Digital Imaging.

Join us in Calgary on September 27, 2018 to find out and tap into Karen’s exceptionally keen insights on how to build and grow a lucrative business, finding your calling as a business leader, and successfully navigating major career transitions.
