1. Why did you decide to do a webinar with Business Review Webinars?
Actually, I have been thinking of using webinars as a sales & marketing tool for some time and BRW provided a tailored package that was exactly what we were looking for.
2. What are you hoping to achieve from doing the webinar?
Simply a continuation of the marketing efforts that we are currently doing along the lines of the topics that we will present. That, along with presenting Canusa as a professional organisation that our customers want to go to for quality information.
3. What are you looking forward to explaining to the audience?
We have a message that we are working to get out and webinars provide an alternate platform to get that message out.
4. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
Canada – a great place to live and work! Aside from that, I enjoy travelling and Latin/South America has been interesting – favourite place would be Buenos Aires Argentina because it has the South America feel with an old European twist.
5. How did you get into the energy industry?
Always worked for manufacturers of commercial construction products and ended up coming to Canusa through a colleague who I worked with at a previous company.
