    CTP Ep. 146 - Billal Qureshi

    Today on CTP we have Billal Qureshi, the Head of Mobile + Apps at Google Canada. We had a great conversation about how the pandemic has affected Canadian businesses, what tools small businesses can use to get in touch with customers and increase business, and what small business owners should keep an eye out for next. Billal's answer on that last one surprised me, it might surprise you too.

DerekSilva ,

Better and better

The show just gets better every week. The trip to Fireside Conference was insightful, and finding tech news that only affects Canadians is really hard.

Hopey1979 ,

Great discussions on latest tech topics

Nice Canadian perspective, but also great for anyone who wants to know what is new in the tech sector by two tech geeks who know their stuff. Good for both lay people with an interest and for tech experts.

Phronk ,

Much needed tech news from a Canadian perspective

It's basically This Week in Tech with a Canadian twist. A rotating set of smart and attractive hosts keeps it fresh week after week!
