Hey I’m Pat Perdue and I want to introduce you to my latest podcast.  This one is a co-production between my company, YCASTR, and Seneca College, in Toronto. 

Seneca College is a really great school.  I know, because over the past couple of years I’ve been teaching some marketing and customer service courses there.  People come to study at Seneca from all over the world which makes it a hotbed of innovative thinking.  And a big part of that thinking is driven by our amazing faculty, many of whom are, well, like me, professionals who are thriving in their own businesses, and teach at Seneca as a way to share their passion for what they do.  Needless to say I’ve been hugely inspired by the people I’ve met.

 And what happens when I get inspired?  Well, apparently I launch a podcast.  So, here we are!  Welcome to #SenecaProud!  Where I get to introduce YOU to some of Seneca College’s amazing faculty. 

So subscribe, download, and join me, as we meet some of the super inspiring folks who teach here at Seneca College, in Toronto.      

I’m Pat Perdue, and I’m glad you’re here today.
