Biz X magazine 20th Annual Awards Issue Nov Dec 2017 Vol 20 Issue 10

ON THE COVER — “Follow The Yellow Brick Road”— page 18.
The 2017 Biz X Awards issue features a “Emerald City: There’s No Place Like Home” theme to celebrate our 20th anniversary (emerald) and to honour where we live and work, Windsor Essex. And when you combine these two elements, the 1939 Wizard of Oz movie is a perfect fit to represent this year’s award tribute. Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion follow the yellow brick road to Emerald City to meet the Great and Powerful Oz to help her get home. For business owners we all hope the yellow brick road leads to success for many years to come in the “merry old land” of Windsor Essex.
