by Claude Guay – President and General Manager, IBM Canada Sabrina Geremia – Country Manager, Google Canada

The launch of Ryerson University’s DMZ “Movers and Shakers” podcast includes episodes with two of our members from the technology sector. Both Sabrina Geremia and Claude Guay reflect on how the pandemic has sped up the rate of innovation around the world and the urgency to provide Canadians with the skills needed to succeed in the digital economy.

“For [IBM], it’s important that innovation also be done in a “good tech” fashion; we think innovation should be [for] helping mankind.”

Claude Guay, President and General Manager, IBM Canada Ltd.

“Everyone is learning digital skills and using digital tools at an unprecedented rate. So we’ve doubled down a lot on our skills to meet the moment.”
