1. What does winning the CanadianSME National Business Award mean to you and your organization?
When it was announced that Macro had been recognized for Best Professional Services, I was ecstatic. I couldn’t have been prouder of the team. This award is a reflection of the hard work that we do every day to create magical customer experiences for clients through the orchestration of technologies, people, and data. It’s a beautiful thing to see how everything comes together
2. What piece of advice would you give to entrepreneurs?
While reflecting on the award, I put together some recommendations that I would give to entrepreneurs. I wrote my reflections on LinkedIn the following week. One that I would like to emphasize is to let go of perfect. When you’re starting out, it’s critical to test the market with ideas, assess reactions and track the messages you hear. Never assume a perfect plan will go accordingly. It usually doesn’t, and that’s okay.
