Ep. 146 – Billal Qureshi

We’re back! Listen now.

This episode of Canadian Tech Podcast features an interview with Billal Qureshi, the Head of Mobile + Apps at Google Canada. We had a great conversation about how the pandemic has affected Canadian businesses, what tools small businesses can use to get in touch with customers and increase business, and what small business owners should keep an eye out for next. Billal’s answer on that last one surprised me, it might surprise you too.

Coming Back

Coming Back

Hi! Derek here. Canadian Tech Podcast (CTP for short) is going to be coming back. We don’t have have a schedule yet, or even a show format, but Stuart and I have been told many times that people miss the show.

The new CTP will probably be a mix of news, analysis, interviews, and so on. Probably twice a month or so, depending on what life throws at me. But I really miss doing the show, and I feel the need to get back at it.

So please be on the look out for new Canadian Tech Podcast episodes right here, and through our new podcast host Acast!

What are you up to lately?

  • Stuart – Was sick for most of the holiday’s (not fun). I’m now Board Chair at London Public Library. Really enjoying the contract position at Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry help desk. Keeping fingers and toes crossed that it turns into a permanent position.
  • Derek – Had a nice holiday season. Enjoying the Google Home mini and Chromecast I got for Christmas! Was just at Kathleen’s company country-themed new year party on Friday, I came in second place in the Bloom token community rewards program to take home USD $3,000 of BLT, and thinking of becoming a crypto-focused YouTuber/podcaster.
