    Over the past few months we’ve heard from many business leaders as they have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Guests on this podcast have told us how they have overcome unique challenges and we’ve heard about the many ways corporate Canada has supported communities through the crisis.

Instead, Lisa channelled her grief into an inspiring memoir and has gone on to help countless others deal with life’s challenges.
