Interview with Peter – Women and Men in the Corporate World – Different Experiences?

By - Last updated: Thursday, February 27, 2014

Today's post is the first of three excerpts from my interview with "Peter" a very successful and senior lawyer at one of Canada's major law firms.  I was thrilled he agreed to be interviewed. I hope you enjoy reading what he has to say and as usual your comments are most welcome!! I asked Peter to describe his impression of the difference between the experience of a man and woman in the corporate world.   Peter says: “Let’s look at this first of all from where people have come from and also from a generational perspective.  The answer is very different for my peers than for the young lawyers and business people that I see coming into the work force now who are ...

The Opt Out Generation Wants Back In

By - Last updated: Monday, October 7, 2013

A friend sent me the link to an article published in the New York Times in early August with the title "The Opt Out Generation Wants Back In."  When friends send me articles, I usually read them and tweet about them (if I am inspired to do so),  despite the fact, I am well aware many of you are not on twitter.   In this case, I kept thinking about the article and thought it offered a perspective we don't hear very often, so I am doing things the old fashioned way...I am blogging about it to share the link with you....in the hopes, more of you will read it.   I warn you this article is a long one!! Regardless, I believe it ...

By - Last updated: Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4   In the fall of 2012, I appeared on The Live Drive with John Tory to talk about my book Babes on Bay Street. All of the arrangements for my appearance were made by a woman named Lyndsey Vanstone (the producer of The Live Drive with John Tory program) who I found impressive from my very first interaction with her on the telephone.   Over the course of several interactions and at the studio the day of the show, I was so completely impressed with Lyndsey that I  asked whether she would be willing to be interviewed for my blog. She said she would love to do it and I thought she ...
