The Schulich School of Business Career Development Centre organized a panel discussion featuring Pycap CEO Stuart Browne as one of the panelists.
Stuart graduated with an MBA from the Schulich School of Business in 2009, during the last economic crisis. On the panel he discussed the difficulty he and many of his peers had at that time in securing meaningful employment. Eventually through working in numerous contract positions within junior mining, investor relations and an angel investment organization, Stuart was able to carve out his own path through entrepreneurial efforts.
His main advice to his audience was to generate value by finding problems people and organizations are having in the market, and to creating employment opportunities by using their skills and resources to solve those problems.
Pycap CEO Stuart Browne was interviewed by Stuart McNish on the Simon Fraser University video program Centre for Dialogue.
On this show, Stuart was interviewed on Leadership in Crisis and how companies can survive and thrive through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Conversations That Matter is an array of video-podcast programs under one channel. Its informed hosts engage in thoughtful and respectful dialogue with educated guests. The flagship program is Conversations That Matter, and it provides weekly news discussions in which veteran journalist Stuart McNish sits down with thought leaders to discuss the issues that most impact the lives of Canadians, and our neighbours around the world.
