Deepak Chopra
President and CEO, Canada Post




“Redefining Canada Post’s Role in the New Economy”

Canada Post finds itself at a pivotal moment in its storied history. After successfully adjusting to fax machines, email and dial-up then broadband Internet, the combination of fast Internet and smart tablets has shaken the mail business at its core. For the first time in modern history, paper-based communication has a credible alternative. Transaction Mail volumes have declined 23.6 per cent per household since 2008, and the Conference Board of Canada predicts the company is on course to lose close to $1 billion a year by the year 2020. Deepak Chopra, President and CEO of Canada Post will discuss plans to address these and other challenges as it embarks on the most ambitious makeover in the company’s 250-yer history.

 Mr. Chopra is one of the most highly regarded transformational executives in Canadian business.  He has more than 20 years of global experience as a postal industry executive, most recently as President and Chief Executive Officer of Pitney Bowes Canada and Latin America.  His insights into the importance and the challenges of enterprise redefinition will be of interest to ICT executives, whether they are responsible for billion-dollar companies like Canada Post or brand new start-ups.  Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating discussion at the next ITAC Board of Governors Dinner in Ottawa.
