Play • 29 min

Have you ever wondered what qualities make up a true innovator? How do they approach problems and create new solutions? Is it nature or nurture?

On this episode of Disruptors, an RBC Podcast, host John Stackhouse goes inside the minds of three Canadian innovators, all recipients of this year’s Governor General Innovation Awards: Gary Agnew, Co-founder and CEO, Ideon Technologies; Paulette Senior, CEO and President, Canadian Women’s Foundation; and Dr. Mark Stradiotto, Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at Dalhousie University. 

Innovation requires pushing the envelope until the end goal is reached. Our guests share how to foster an innovative culture and safe environment to achieve new ways of doing business. As we found out, innovation is within all of us, but the environment needs to be created to support it.
