    Sheri Elefant

    Sheri Elefant

    Sheri Elefant shares her personal journey, the shift in her career from corporate to non-profit and the things that are most meaningful to her. 

    Originally from New York, Sheri began her professional life in advertising working on product launches and media negotiations in a fast-paced, multi-million dollar industry. The decision to leave Madison Avenue was not difficult, as the greatest and most challenging opportunity of her life lay ahead - raising her kids.

    Her non-profit career began as co-founder of the Trevor Williams Kids Foundation and she currently serves as the Strategic Development Officer for the Montreal Community Cares Foundation. Prior to this, she co-founded a 21st century non-profit sustainability learning space called Genvironment. She is also a member of the advisory board at Clickto, an edtech startup, which was born out of a need to address the pain points of remote learning as virtual became the new in-person.

    Sheri is passionate about creating social value and putting youth - our future change makers - at the forefront of social issues, and integrating impact in anything she puts her hands on.

    Sheri is mother to Samantha '10 (Pre-U '11) and David '12 (Pre-U '13).

    Matt Cundill

    Matt Cundill '87 joins us for a candid conversation about his background, his journey in broadcasting and shift to the world of podcasting. 

    Matt is one of the best in the business of Canadian broadcasting and podcasting. He says he is grateful to his English teachers who, in his words, taught him how to write, an essential skill for working in media.

    Matt continues to show support to those who aspire to follow in his footsteps, as he explains that his industry is all about giving back, sharing and teaching. He mentored students of the LCC Green Team, as they launched their own environment-related podcast, The Sustainable Burrito and, most recently, guided LCC in the production of the We Are LCC podcast.

    Matt’s career in the industry spans 20 years. He was born and raised in Montreal and spent his days listening to radio before working on air. He was program director at top music and talk radio stations across Canada, starting at Montreal’s CHOM 97.7 and eventually landing in Winnipeg. In 2014, Matt had a slight career shift from radio and launched The Sound Off Media Company, helping broadcasters and podcasters increase their audience and the amount of time engaged in their audio, as well as hosting his own podcast The Podcast about Broadcast.
