Our cover story takes an indepth look at the 93rd annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. We interview new CEO Charlie Johnstone, who moves into the agriculture realm after spending the past decade in leading the Honda Indy motor race in Toronto. The Royal, as it is colloquially known, attracts more than 300,000 visitors over the course of 10 days in November.

Mergers and acquisitions expert Mark Borkowski has an interesting column on investing in volatile times, while Marsha Friedman examines how to generate blog ideas that will keep readers coming back.

Software is becoming more and more predominant in many industries, and it's the focus of a column by Robert Tercek, who says we are now in a software-defined society. Sarah Sutton Fell tells us about how a survey has found 76% of workers avoid the office for important tasks.

This edition also has in-depth features on Canada's Outdoor Farm Show and Herzig Eye Institute, which is headed by Dr. Sheldon Herzig and CEO Cherry Tabb. Together, they have built the top-rated laser eye correction centre in Canada, and have patients coming to them from 23 countries around the world. We get an update from Beck Taxi and how Uber-x is impacting on the entire taxi cab industry and also report on a number of innovative economic development programs that are taking place in the Town of Ajax, Ontario. There is all of that and much more in this issue.
