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

The diversity of opportunity. We are a small big city, with a stable mix of established industry and start-ups. It creates an interesting business culture and enables exposure to large enterprise and small businesses alike.

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

Invest in furthering our start up culture, in particular with tech / AI. Montreal is accelerating their lead on us, and we are now having to play catch up!

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

I still hate the word leverage. I’ve been hating it since ’15

What is your favourite curse word?

I’m a fan of a confidently placed F-bomb

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

The beach. Specifically the outer harbour at Ashbridges Bay or Tom Thompson park.
