MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 6, 2012) - Providing counsel to entrepreneurs is challenging, even at the best of times. It is something that Suzanne Bertrand of Fuller Landau has been doing with a steady hand since 1996. Next January, her advice and comments will be projected to more than 2 million viewers. Bertrand has been selected as one of three panelists who will judge participants during the fifth season of VoirGRAND.tv, a popular television series that sees aspiring entrepreneurs present and defend their business plans in front of a large online and television audience.
"I've always considered myself, first and foremost, as an advisor," said Suzanne Bertrand, CPA, CA, partner at Fuller Landau Montréal. "More than anything else, helping others is what motivates me to show up at work every day. Granted, a TV studio is not your typical setting for business meetings, nevertheless I will continue to let myself be guided by a commitment to giving candid and constructive advice that has value to business owners."
VoirGRAND.tv is the first television program devoted to fostering and promoting the entrepreneurial spirit of Quebecers. Created, produced and hosted by entrepreneur Anne Marcotte, the innovative television series will be broadcast this January on VOX, as well as on ARGENT, illico Web and illico TÉLÉ. The protagonists, entrepreneurs from all over Quebec with businesses in various sectors and at various stages in their lifecycle, include five of the most courageous, driven and bright-minded men and women in the world of business in the province.
"There are few things more gratifying than a constructive discussion with an entrepreneurial and creative mind," said Bertrand. "This television program is the 'real deal' in that it accurately reflects the types of conversations that need to take place when building a business. I encourage all Quebecers to tune into the program and consider if they are called to the entrepreneurial life."
Bertrand joined Fuller Landau in 2001 and was admitted into partnership in 2010. She has worked with rapidly growing start-ups as well as established companies, international corporations and non-profit organizations. Involved in various charitable initiatives including cancer research and health awareness, she has developed a pristine reputation as a problem-solver, rock-solid resource for clients, people person and someone always willing to learn.
Other judges selected to the VoirGRAND.tv panel include Stéphane Bouchard from Henard Solutions and Pierre Paul-Hus from Magazine Prestige. Filming took place last October in Québec City and Montréal.
