Executive Recruitment Firm Launches Leadership Podcast

The Canadian Leaders and Influencers Podcast shares real-life examples of effective leadership intended to deepen one’s management toolbox

TORONTO, ON, August 15, 2017 — This week’s episode of The Canadian Leaders and Influencers Podcast (‘The CLiP’) features an exclusive interview with Canada’s 18th Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Brian Mulroney. Mr. Mulroney explores his life – from his proudest moments of NAFTA to the failure of Meech Lake. He shares his vison for the future of Canada, what must be done to remain the best country in the world and his thoughts on the importance for reconciliation with First Nations. “As the Prime Minister responsible for negotiating NAFTA, this conversation is particularly timely, as Mr. Mulroney has once again been called upon to serve Canadians with advice and counsel in the lead up to NAFTA’s renegotiation this fall,” said Bill Vlaad, founder of Vlaad and Company and host of The CLiP.

The CLiP offers clients and customers of Vlaad and Company unparalleled access to personal examples of leadership from noteworthy Canadians,” commented Vlaad. “The CLiP takes listeners on a deep, candid dive into a wide variety of current great Canadian leaders’ philosophies, aspirations, personal histories, management style and outlook for the future. The guests we have lined up are amazing, and we are thrilled to see the audience grow in response to the great content. Since launching The CLiP, listenership has grown by 20% monthly.”

In previous episodes, The CLiP has welcomed guests such as We Movement co-founder, Marc Kielburger, private equity mogul Brent Belzberg; President of Panasonic Canada, Michael Moskowitz and the former Conservative leadership candidate Kevin O’Leary. There are currently over a dozen episodes ready to download, with dozens more in the pipeline for Season Two. “I am really excited that we launched The CLiP,” said Vlaad. “Staying ahead of the curve is always important and meeting and interviewing these outstanding Canadians has been a great honour.”
