EP509: Brendan Calder on GettingItDone

Welcome to Season 5 of Connected Intelligence - a podcast about all the things we bring to work that aren’t actually about the work.

How does one “get it done”?

Brendan Calder is the former CEO, chair and president of CIBC Mortgages (1995-2000) and former chair of the Peter F. Drucker Foundation and the Toronto International Film Festival.

Brendan created the award-winning MBA course, GettingltDone.

Brendan is chair of Desautels Centre for Integrative Thinking and the founding chair of the Rotman International Centre for Pension Management at the Rotman School of Management. He is also a corporate director and continues to make major philanthropic contributions throughout his community. For his efforts spanning more than three decades, he has been awarded numerous honours and awards, including induction into the Canadian Mortgage Hall of Fame in 2004 and over ten excellence in teaching awards.

We talk to Brendan about his transition from banking to teaching – his transition from teaching to retirement; Buddhism, motorcycles, movies, and leadership.
