I don’t think I’ve met anyone who discusses billions of dollars as casually as today’s guest. He’s worth listening to. A few years ago, he oversaw his employer’s expansion into Manitoba, and now he manages an office that is involved in many of our province’s most prominent real estate ventures. In our conversation, we get into the nuts and bolts of real estate financing, as well as how to approach expanding into a new market.

A lot of the people I interview for this show are seasoned vets, often near the top of pretty substantial organizations. And I’m happy about that, because we can learn a lot from people with that level of experience. However, I’m equally interested in hearing from business leaders “working in the trenches”, so-to-speak. There’s a lot to learn from entrepreneurs who are involved with the ground-level aspects of their business on a daily basis. Today’s guest is like that.

You won’t want to miss this. The interview you’re about to hear was a fun one. Our guest came up working with Sam Katz. Now he works for what is probably the most beloved corporation in Manitoba. Our entire province benefits from his work in a huge way, and yet I bet most people in it will not know his name. The conversation is also unique because we get to hear a true expert’s take on the business aspect of show business.

Her organization’s job is to facilitate international partnerships for local businesses, and by all accounts they seem to do that well. In the interview, I try to dig into how that works.

Our interview guest today is a giant of Winnipeg’s business community, and yet when he began his business endeavours as a teenager in the city 40 years ago, he was a complete unknown. In the conversation, we discuss what happened during those 40 years, what the future holds, and what his advice would be for any young unknowns setting out to replicate his success.
