  • Zahra Al-Harazi, founder, creative director and two-thirds owner of Foundry Communications: “Pick a career based on what you love and what you’re good at. It makes it 100 times easier and it doesn’t become work any more. You come to work in the morning with a different level of excitement.”

  • Chris Hodgson, head of industry retail for Google Canada” “Never be afraid to dream big and follow your dreams. That is important when you’re thinking of making career transitions, when you’re looking at new opportunities that are available to you. It can be easy to say, ‘That sounds a bit risky.’ But if it’s something you’ve always wanted to do, quite often it’s worth that risk.”
