Speaker Biographies


Mariana Bracic began her legal career in 1994 at a   prominent Bay Street law firm  advising clients on employment law issues. Six years later, she became Advisory Counsel with the Law Society of Upper Canada, the regulator of all the lawyers in the province. As Advisory Counsel, she was responsible for ensuring the highest standards for Ontario lawyers in ethics and competence.

In 2003, Ms. Bracic opened MBC Legal, a boutique employment law firm and subsequently MBC Information Solutions Inc., a human resources firm.  MBC has an extremely micro-niche focus:  they practice only HR law, only on the employer side and very predominantly for health-care sector employers (doctors, dentists, veterinarians, etc.)  That unique laser-focus provides unparalleled benefits for MBC clients.

Ms. Bracic’s extra-curricular interests include a commitment to early childhood literacy.  She taught her twins to read by the time they were twelve months old and they have been featured on the front page of the National Post, on City TV, CBC Radio and other media.  Ms. Bracic is writing a book on how to teach babies to read.  In her spare time, she also enjoys running, having recently completed the Toronto Marathon.


Jon Walton has guided countless numbers of doctors nationwide through the appraisal and sale of their most emotional, and likely most valuable asset - their practice. From a very young age, Jon spent countless hours in veterinary practices, as well as other professional practices learning every facet of the clinical, managerial, and ownership aspects of practice from his father and mentor, Dr. John Walton. Jon Walton is actively involved with many of the national associations including the Hamilton Academy of Veterinary Medicine, lecturing in continuing education events and writing articles for national and international publications. With his expertise in negotiations, sales, and his long taught ability to run a successful hospital, Jon will help doctors realize their practices' full potential, both now, and for the future
