YVR is all about connections. People connecting with loved ones, new places, and adventures. Businesses connecting to new markets. Cargo connecting to destinations the world over. These are the obvious connection points of an airport. As we move through the pandemic, YVR is also moving; moving beyond an airport to become a platform for our community to connect and thrive. Similarly, in this podcast, we go beyond the obvious connections with our guests to discover the unexpected missed approach or points of turbulence that led them to where they are today. 

We get to know more about leaders who have played a pivotal role in our community and learn more about how the pandemic has influenced their leadership: what lies beneath their journey during this critical time. Often it's the values they keep hidden - what's beyond the surface - that truly drives the person they present to the world. And let's face it, it’s also what makes them fun to talk to and makes for an unforgettable interview. 

This is Beyond.
