The 2011 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards recognize women entrepreneurs from across Canada who make impressive contributions to the local, Canadian or global economy. Nominees share a strong entrepreneurial vision and a relentless passion in pursing their dreams. The award series recognizes business women from three major regions across Canada; east, central and west. Recently, Ellen Kral, Group Publisher and CEO of Kenilworth Publishing Inc. & Kenilworth Media Inc., was named the central finalist for the PROFIT Award for Excellence in Entrepreneurship.

Kral sat down with awards organizers to discusses how she turned a fledgling publishing company into a multi-million dollar enterprise and what it takes to succeed as a woman entrepreneur in Canada.
