AUTHENTIC. TRANSPARENT. FOCUSED.

TAKE PART IN SOMETHING GREAT

The Honest Talk promises to do things differently. We are committed to engaging in real, deeply honest conversation about the experiences, challenges, aspirations and lessons shared of women entrepreneurs, business leaders, and up-and-coming female professionals.
 

We want to shed the layers of key messages and talking points, and create a forum that leaves women feeling connected, inspired and motivated in their careers and personal lives.

PODCAST

Ep23_SangitaPatel_twitter.png

EPISODE 23: Sangita Patel is a staple in Canada’s entertainment sector – she’s an on-air host with Entertainment Tonight Canada, the current host of HGTV's Home to Win and Canada’s Covergirl ambassador. But Sangita wasn’t always set on a career in TV – in fact, she’s an electrical engineer, but also a dedicated mother, wife, philanthropist and fitness enthusiast - a true example that women can achieve multiple goals in different fields, and that sometimes the best laid plans need to be thrown out the window. Sangita joins Jen and Catherine for a fun, dynamic chat about her fast-paced life, her unusual start in television and, oh yeah… Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

EPISODE 22: Serena Ryder is a seven time JUNO award-winning, platinum-selling artist, a powerhouse singer whose potent, heartfelt lyrics have inspired and captivated audiences and fans around the world. Serena has been performing since she was a kid, but her path has not been without ups and downs – including debilitating struggles with mental health. Through it all, she has persevered and grown as an artist and human being, and she released her latest album – The Art of Falling Apart – in March of 2021. In this wide-ranging, candid conversation, Serena talks to Jen and Catherine about the good spots, the tough spots, the learning experiences and her plans for the future.

Ep21_Jane_Philpott_twitter.png

EPISODE 21: The Honourable Jane Philpott shot to national prominence as the first medical doctor in Canadian history to be appointed federal Minister of Health, subsequently also serving as Minister of Indigenous Services and President of the Treasury Board. But politics is only one part of a long and remarkable career so far. Dr. Philpott has served in numerous medical capacities and worked abroad providing healthcare in some of the world’s most marginalized communities. She is now Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences & Director of the School of Medicine at Queen’s University, and in this interview she speaks with candour and emotion about the death of her daughter Emily, living a life of integrity, the similarities between politics and medicine, and about her hopes for medicine in the future.
