Surprisingly interesting conversations with leaders, entrepreneurs and inspiring people.
#126 - Create. Colette Hamon, President + CEO - BraTopia
Today on The Kondrat Podcast I met up with Colette Hamon, President and CEO of Bratopia. Colette started the company when she saw a space in the lingerie industry that was being ignored - which was educating and empowering customers. Through Bratopia, Colette and her team are committed to helping women and making their lives better.
#125 - Inspire. Nicky Nash, Executive Director - Kids Up Front Calgary
Today on The Kondrat Podcast I met up with Nicky Nash - Executive Director for Kids Up Front Calgary. It’s one of those conversations where I realize two things simultaneously. First - I am grateful that people like Nicky exist in the world. Second, I realize that Nicky is about 1000x better of a human being than I will ever be!
124 - Inspire. JD Lewis, Morning Host - CJAY 92
Today on The Kondrat Podcast I met up with my friend JD Lewis who is the Morning Host at CJAY 92 in Calgary, Alberta. When COVID first hit, JD and I did a series of podcasts together to check in on small business owners to see what they were doing to pivot (oh how we came to hate that word!). About four months into the podcast together it looked like the world was getting back to normal so we wrapped up the series. Oops - we were wrong!
123 - Lead. Peter Christensen - The Danish Canadian Club of Calgary
Today on The Kondrat Podcast I met up Peter Christensen with the Danish Canadian Club in Calgary, Alberta. The Danish Canadian Club has a very interesting connection to the Craft Beer Community in Alberta - Ed McNaley who founded Big Rock Brewery was a regular there while he was making plans to build his brewery!
122 - Create. Adam Wasyliw- Founder of Paradise Skis
Today on The Kondrat Podcast I met up with Adam Wasyliw - Founder of Paradise Skis in Calgary, Alberta. Adam and his friend Cam Brodrick - who are both Mechanical Engineers - wanted to create skis and snowboards designed especially for the snow conditions of the Canadian Rockies.
121 - Lead. Jyoti Gondek - Mayor-Elect, Calgary, Alberta
Today on The Kondrat Podcast, I revisit my conversation with Jyoti Gondek, the Mayor-Elect for Calgary, Alberta. As mayor, Jyoti’s goal is to create a city that can attract new investment, retain talent, and re-establish our economic advantage.
This podcast makes me burst out laughing all the time. It’s great conversations with real people. I highly enjoy listening to it.
