Aug 17 2021 • 53 mins

On today’s show, we interview Bill Maginas who shares with us his distilled wisdom on leveraging knowledge, branding, and finding success in the corporate world.

We start this show with Bill recalling his life before Student Works. Born to Greek immigrants, Bill was always entrepreneurial and had a big engine for work. And this was why he was instantly attracted to Student Works when he was in his first year in college.

You will learn how a “structured approach to being an entrepreneur” can work wonders for you – the same way it worked for Bill.

After graduating from Wilfrid Laurier, Bill joined Honeywell in November 1999. In his 17-year-long stint here, Bill got an opportunity to work in different countries and across a wide range of industry verticals.

In 2016, Bill was appointed as the President of Johnson Controls. In his new role, Bill shares how he dramatically altered the organizational structure to improve overall efficiencies. In this segment of the show, you will also learn how to maintain your work relationships and part with your employer on a good note.

Currently, as the CEO of Great Northern Insulation, Bill shares how he is leveraging knowledge and attempting to make his mark in a commoditized industry.

This is a show you do not want to miss.
