Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of the future of business in any country and Financial Post And Ernst & Young have teamed up on a new online content section. The digital first is called “30 Seconds or Less,” and will each week, mentors will be asked a business question and challenged to offer their insight in less than 30 seconds. Each day a new answer is revealed creating the first daily online video mentoring program in Canada.
“It’s a great opportunity to access practical perspectives and gain valuable insight on succeeding as an entrepreneur.”
“The Financial Post has been the trusted voice of Canadian business for over 100 years,” said Douglas Kelly, Publisher, National Post. “30-Second Mentor ushers in a new era of delivering news and information to our audience with an innovative video-only format and exemplifies the National Post’s and Postmedia Network’s dedication to a digital-first strategy in a smart and entertaining manner.”
The first 30-Second Mentors include Arlene Dickinson, Anthony Lacavera, Catherine Swift, Mark McEwan and Postmedia President and CEO Paul Godfrey. Some questions that will be asked of mentors will include: How do you measure success? What did you learn from the recession? What incentives should you offer employees to stay, besides cash? And, is work-life balance a myth?
Sounds like a great roster of entrepreneurs who have all obtained their own level of success in the business world.
