We talk about the tech industry as being a disruptive space a lot. But what about the cannabis industry? This interview is with Bruce Linton, the Founder, CEO and Chairman of Canopy Growth Corporation.
Canopy is the largest cannabis producer in the world and Bruce has been largely responsible for it's growth as well as the growth of the cannabis industry in general.
The questions that I asked myself going into this interview was, "How the heck does a guy take a product that was, and still is in many countries, an illegal substance and make it a product that is now considered mainstream? " and "What are the negotiation techniques and tools he used to make that happen?"
This one's a little different. Actually, it's very different. When I heard Dr. Roger Wong speak on Gerontology at TEDx Stanley Park in Vancouver and how to help our elderly loved ones gain more independence, I knew I needed to have him on the show. This show is all about how to have difficult home based conversations we often ignore, specifically when it comes time to having a conversation with aging parents or loved ones.
Dr. Wong works tirelessly to advance academic and clinical health sciences related to geriatrics, and his work has significant impact on the care for older people in Canada and beyond.
Guest: Dr. Roger Wong
Evan Hopkins, former VP of Sales at 1-800-GOT-JUNK, comes on the show to talk about franchise sales, but more specifically to talk about how to develop trust so that we can have difficult conversations around under-performance. Evan speaks to a concept called 'radical candor'. Being candid is the only way to approach tough conversations. We also get into how to get referrals and how to condition the other party to get you what you need.
