There's a how and a what. The what is the accounting, the medicine, the paramedic, um, the nursing, the truck driver. The how is the communication, the teamwork, the resilience, everything that lays over top of that and how you do that job. And you need a balance of the two.
How can a set of skills lead you down the path to success?
That's what we're setting out to answer on the EdUp Canada podcast. I'm your host, Michael Sangster. Join me as we unpack how leaders around the world have taken training and skills and turned that into a lasting career. Now let's learn together.
Welcome everybody to the first, an inaugural edition of EdUp Canada. Can't be more excited here. My name is Michael Sangster. I'm the CEO of the National Association of Career Colleges, but I just couldn't be more excited to be here today, launching this new podcast that's going to talk about learning, uh, around post secondary education in Canada.
Our conversations during the podcast series will be running over the next year, we'll focus on business leaders, students. Educators, political and not for profit leaders. I want to talk about real life experiences, issues facing workforce development in Canada. decisions that learners and employers and government leaders take in planning education in our country.
And we're also going to talk about mentors, mistakes, and success. This isn't going to be focused on the career college sector. It's going to be focused on post secondary education in Canada. And those decisions that people make on a daily basis on their own career path, their own family's trajectories.
And we're really excited and looking forward to seeing where these conversations go. And with that, I couldn't think of a better person to start with than, than Krista Pauly. Krista is the founder of Wavemakers in Canada, but she's, she's much more than that. She's, she's a leader. She's a mentor. She's an innovator.
And I'm fortunate enough to call her a friend. Uh, she is truly one of the nicest people you'll ever meet in this country if you go coast to coast to coast. She's inspiring and has, has challenged and, and changed education in our, in our country by, by launching Wavemakers and, and a lot of work that they're doing.
So with that, Krista, welcome.
Thank you so much, Mike. I'm really glad this is a podcast because that way people can't see me blushing so much for that really overly generous introduction. I'm thrilled to be here. I'm so excited to be the inaugural guest.
