APR 2023 Education

Like most of us in the telecommunications industry, I believe in the value of lifelong education. I got my Undergraduate Degree in Economics & Finance and my MBA from the University of Toronto many years ago, but there isn’t a day that goes by without a new lesson to learn. During my time at Bell and Nortel Networks I was fortunate to have had advanced training at some of the top business schools in North America, as well as international business training in Asia.
My time in YPO also gave me the opportunity to grow and learn by meeting and interacting with some of the best leaders in business management such as Jim Collins, one of the world’s most prestigious management thinkers and author of Good to Great.  YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) is a global leadership community of more than 30,000 chief executives from 142 countries. Running since 1950, the organization “welcomes extraordinary leaders to grow stronger together to improve lives, businesses and the world.”
In addition to my formal education and training, I have always had a keen interest in self learning by reading as much as I can about business strategy, management, and leadership. I am currently deep into “Next – The Power of Reinvention” by Joanne Lipman and one of my favorites “Blue Ocean Strategy” by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne.
The benefits of lifelong education go far beyond what you learn in school or reading. Studies from places like Harvard University Medical School, University of Texas at Dallas and University of Sussex in England have shown that lifelong education and learning increases brain health, lengthens lifespan, and improves mental health. Research has shown that the more educated you are, the lower are your rates of anxiety and depression.
For me, the value in lifelong education and learning goes beyond the health benefits. It is the value I can bring to Conach Telecom as we continue to evolve and grow our partnership with our strategic partner Bell in delivering the best experience, service, and value to Bell’s BBM clients.
