Congratulations to the companies selected to participate in 2011:
The WIFT-T Executive Management Program is a national initiative—valued at $3,500 per team—that provides production companies with the opportunity to develop their management team through an intensive five-day workshop. The program also incorporates mentorship opportunities matching industry leaders with workshop participants.
“We had three great conversations with Michael [McGuigan] at Breakthrough. He advised us on the industry in general, where we could position our company and potentially grow our business, and on our pitch package for a doc series…Thanks for setting up a great mentorship!” – Monica Hilborn, Lexico Productions Inc., 2009 Participant
The production companies convene in Toronto for five days of intensive workshops, case studies and one-on-one consultations with local and internationally renowned production company executives. Participants learn how to incorporate standard business models and position themselves as competitive leaders in a global marketplace.
The goal is to facilitate participants’ understanding of where they are in the development of their company, how their productions fit within an overall corporate growth strategy, and what their distinct market position is within a global economy.
