Fantastic Canadian Leadership Perspectives
Mr. Vlaad brings together a very impressive list of prominent and succesful Canadians which offer thought leadership across a span of business, political and social milieus. In doing so, guests generously share intimiate perspectives into personal career and life lessons. The interviews are structured but also provide for a natural and fluid dialogue when warranted. Definitely binge worthy.
Great Content - Helpful insights
These clips provide a refreshing insight into the person behind the executive title. I've noticed that these clips provide takeaways to put into practice within my own routine, or a thought provoking perspective to mull over at a later time.
Keep it up and thanks.
