Countdown to the 2021 Top 50 CEOs: Take 5 with 2020 award winner Laurel Broten

Posted on March 18, 2021 | Atlantic Business Magazine | 0 Comments

Laurel Broten has led the transformation of Nova Scotia’s economic development agency over the past six years. Under Laurel’s leadership, NSBI has attracted over 70 investments, greenlit 10 new programs, increased average export sales by 20%, approved and announced over 190 film funding commitments, and worked with 150 businesses of diversity.

For this episode of Take 5 with the Top 50, Katrina Beach – partner, Assurance Services with Top 50 CEO presenting sponsor Grant Thornton – asks Laurel how her experience as an Ontario cabinet minister shaped her leadership of NSBI, what it’s like to be a newcomer to Nova Scotia and what advice she has for developing an innovation culture.

For each episode of Atlantic Business Magazine’s Take 5 with the Top 50 CEOs video series, we ask five questions of a 2020 Top 50 CEO award winner. See video below for the full Q&A with Laurel Broten.
