Donald Cooper 

Donald Cooper transforms businesses...and business people! He has helped thousands of companies throughout the world add more real value to their customers’ lives...and more dollars to their bottom lines!

Donald started his business career at the age of 6, sweeping the floor in the family business for 5 cents a day. Long days and low pay...excellent early training for an entrepreneur!

He earned an MBA at the Ivey Biz School in London, Ontario back when dinosaurs roamed the earth...followed by 18 years at Cooper Canada, the family business. From humble beginnings, with just 11 employees, Cooper Canada became the world's leading maker of ice hockey equipment and a Canadian Brand icon, with over 2,500 employees. If you grew up playing sports in Canada, you may have had Donald’s last name on some part of your body!

Cooper Canada manufactured in two Canadian factories and operated an offshore factory in Barbados for 13 years. The company exported to 24 countries, survived being unionized, sourced product overseas, bought competitors, became a publicly traded company, dealt with partnership and family issues and, finally, sold out for a number of strategic and family reasons.

At age 43 Donald left the family business to do something less corporate, reinventing himself as an award-winning fashion retailer. In just 3 years he fundamentally redefined the customer experience, for which he received 7 Awards of Excellence for marketing, service and business innovation, including being voted Canada’s Innovative Retailer.

Drawing from his real-life experience as a world-class manufacturer, retailer and business coach, Donald now helps companies rethink and reinvent themselves to create compelling customer value, clarity of purpose and long-term profitability.

His insights on how to sell more, manage smarter, grow your bottom line and have a life will inform you, challenge you, disturb you and inspire you!


The theme of this years’ event is “Winning Together – Bet On It”. We’re anticipating an unforgettable time and excitement at Cascades Casino Delta, operating within the hotel. Whether you're drawn to the suspense of the roulette wheel, the strategic play of blackjack, or the anticipation of hitting the jackpot on the slots, Cascades Casino Delta has something for every gaming aficionado.
