Island Thrive: Conversations with Business and Community Leaders.

Smart Dolphins IT

Covid-19 rushed into our lives. For some business leaders, the impact was immediately devastating; operations ceased and layoffs were initiated. For others, the experience was manageable but required speedy innovation.Our vision is to create a space where local leaders can have frank conversations about the ups and downs of doing business on Vancouver Island. Our focus in the first season will be about navigating both the opportunities and challenges that the pandemic presents but as time moves forward our focus will shift as businesses evolve. And to be clear, this isn't a podcast just about technology, it's more about business, specifically business on the Island.
