John Stackhouse has a cool job. The author of three books and former editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail, John is now "responsible for interpreting trends for the executive leadership team and Board of Directors with insights on how these are affecting RBC, its clients and society at large." In order to deliver on that mandate John travels the world and speaks to interesting people. Fortunately for us, he shares some of what he learns with more than just the top RBC executives.
In this podcast, John speaks with Patrick Pichette on how the world is changing at a breathtaking pace and what this new and evolving reality means for corporations. Patrick's resume includes leadership roles at McKinsey, Sprint Canada, Bell and Google. He is now a General Partner at iNovia Capital, a venture capital company investing in the young entrepreneurs who are driving innovation.
I recommend giving their conversation a listen (28 minutes).
