In this episode of Mission Driven Entrepreneurs I interview Shannon Houde who left a stellar career in corporate America, NGOs and sustainability to go after her mission of getting the right people into the right jobs to advance their careers and create a more sustainable world.

Looking at her background she is perfectly placed to advise people on the very world she has worked in for many years. Her partnerships with leading recruitment companies in the UK and USA also give her first hand knowledge on what skills are required in the market place. It was a pleasure to interview Shannon who not only does interesting work but also is a fascinating person.

In this session you’ll find out about: 

  • Her journey to doing what she does now via an MBA, an eco tourism business, recruitment, NGOs and CSR consultancy 
  • Her challenges of being an entrepreneur
  • The highlights of her journey and what she really loves about what she does
  • Why she folded her eco tourism business
  • What Shannon thinks really holds us back and what she helps her client with

I am speaking to Guy Jeremiah at Ohyo Water Bottles who is trying to transform the way we think about bottled water. I have 3 Ohyo bottles for my family and gave them out as presents last year. I hate buying bottled water from an environmental and monetary point of view so I am delighted to have Guy on the show to explain how his journey and his success as the product is now stocked in several large retail chains. Until next Friday!
