Growth marketing event back by popular demand


(September 20, 2018 - Halifax, NS) Propel announced today they will be bringing their growth marketing event, Amplify Atlantic, back to Halifax for round two on November 13.  The event is a chance for companies to learn from the world’s top growth marketing experts. 


This year, the event will be headlined by Steli Efti, Founder of, an inside sales CRM for startups and SMBs. He's known as Silicon Valley's most prominent sales leader, and has advised hundreds of startups on growing their sales teams successfully. He has written over nine books about startup sales and invests in early stage startups as an SVP at PioneerFund.


Steli is an extremely fitting headliner for the event which strives to teach businesses how to grow quickly and successfully.  Last year was the first year for Amplify.  After receiving rave reviews from a nearly sold-out crowd and many requests for another event, Propel knew an encore was necessary.


“The feedback from last year’s event was overwhelmingly positive,” said Yves Boudreau, Amplify honourary co-chair and CEO and co-founder of Alongside.  “We saw first-hand that companies in Atlantic Canada are starving for this type of content and they were insistent we should have another event this year.”


Joining Efti in the lineup this year are keynote speakers:


Alistair Croll, renowned speaker, entrepreneur and author of best-seller Lean Analytics,

Catherine Graham, CEO of commonsku and the President of RIGHTSLEEVE
Eva Lau, Managing Director and Co-founder of Two Small Fish Ventures

And there are more speaker announcements to come.   


“The caliber of speakers for this year’s event is amazing,” said David Crow, Amplify honourary co-chair and founder of Danger Capital.  “Amplify is a must attend event for companies looking for financing and growth. It is for companies looking to up their sales game and connect with potential customers. I congratulate Propel for taking the lead and creating value in the ecosystem by making this happen.”


New to the event this year, is a cocktail hour immediately following the event for all participants.  This is a chance for attendees to mix and mingle with fellow participants and speakers. 

Another addition this year is a second ticket option, Amplify Interactive.  Along with a pass to Amplify, this ticket includes an intensive workshop with headliner Efti on November 14th.  Only 30 of these tickets will be available.

“Growth marketing and developing a strong sales mindset have been identified as weak spots by many companies in the region,” said Barry Bisson, CEO of Propel.  “This is why we’ve made it a priority to bring extra resources and experts in this area to Atlantic Canada through Amplify.  It is always our goal to help companies in our region be successful in any way we can.”  


Tickets are on sale now with early bird pricing until September
