Decisions: Making the Right Ones, Righting the Wrong Ones
Jim Treliving took the leap from the RCMP and started to build a global pizza empire.
Decisions is for budding entrepreneurs and fans of the CBC’s Dragons’ Den.
But it’s also for people who want to understand how lasting success is built and how steady wealth is created. It’s for people who want to make wiser decisions in business and in life, and become true leaders in their chosen field.
Jim Treliving, one of the stars of CBC TV’s Dragons’ Den and The Big Decision, is co-owner of Boston Pizza, a global restaurant franchise with more than $1 billion in sales. He is on the board of the Hockey Canada Foundation, a co-owner of Mr. Lube and has interests in real estate development and sports franchising. Boston Pizza has been voted one of the 50 Best-Managed Private Companies in Canada each year since 1994, and the company was recently recognized as one of Canada’s Top 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures.
