6 Questions with Adrienne Annau

What’s your favourite thing about doing business out of Toronto?

It’s home. I grew up here and have seen the city morph into a vibrant hub of creativity and technology – influenced by cultures from around the world. It’s a city with a huge heart. Sure, we believe in big business, but we also believe in social justice, environmentalism, and equality, and I think you’ll find that runs throughout the work culture here.

What is the one thing you’d like to see the City of Toronto accomplish for businesses in 2018?

Supporting the tech sector and entrepreneurs. Helping develop innovative thinking across all industries.

What is the one buzzword or trend you’d like to see die in 2018?

I’d like to have people think more about the collective group and less about themselves. As Bill Clinton said we’re 99.9% the same, imagine if we concentrate on that instead of the 1% difference.

What is your favourite curse word?

Everyone knows I don’t swear ;).

Where do you go in Toronto when you need to focus and allow your mind to work through complex business challenges?

In a small room with a big window and the door shut.
