Connector, Communicator & Enthusiastic Promoter
Florent (‘Flo’) Thevenin is the director of TheFutureEconomy.ca, a unique Canadian online media that produces multimedia interviews with Canada’s top leaders from business, government, the Indigenous community, academia, and other key stakeholder groups to define a strong vision for Canada’s future economy. Through his conversations with his guests, Flo builds a narrative around what Canada is, what it can be, and how we get there and observes the commonalities that thread through business leaders and entrepreneurs of today, particularly in the current state of the world.
Being an entrepreneur takes on many forms and sizes. Flo talks about Small and Mid-size Enterprise (SMEs), the important economic impact of this sector, and the (mis)perceptions of entrepreneurial life. He shares about his own entrepreneurial journey and makes observations about the differences that exist between entrepreneurs and non-entrepreneurs.
In the latest episode of The Everyday Millionaire, Patrick and Flo discuss the visible division across Canada and Flo illustrates how the business community can rise above the political story to unify the country. Flo offers his view of generating an entrepreneurial culture within our school system to encourage imagination, creativity, and possibility. Flo also redefines the word success and shares the value that comes when we connect what we do to have a meaningful contribution to our community and our country.
