OTTAWA, Ont. – Women With Drive will welcome Angela Mondou, author and leader of the national charitable organization Canada Company, as the keynote speaker at its March 3 summit in Toronto.
A former Air Force captain, Mondou works with Canada Company to help members of the Canadian military make the transition to civilian careers, which could aid in the ongoing driver shortage issue.
In addition to her service, which brought her to Yugoslavia and Operation Desert Storm, Mondou is armed with 18 years of experience as a business executive and entrepreneur, nine years as a logistics officer and a marketing executive, where she helped launch the 7230 Blackberry smartphone on the Oprah Winfrey show.
“Angela Mondou’s experience in the Air Force and private sector provide real-life examples that add credibility to the insights and learnings in her book. Her dynamic approach is a welcome addition to the summit,” says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. “Her work with Canada Company is more important than ever. Members of the Canadian military who are exploring civilian career paths can offer a valuable resource for fleets that are looking for trained personnel.”
Those who attend the summit will receive a copy of Mondou’s book, Hit the Ground Leading!
Women With Drive recruits, retains or mentors women in the Canadian trucking industry.
