SHOW NOTES

In part two of our interview, we talk about rebranding an organization, encouraging feedback as a leader and exploring new parent-friendly programming options – stay tuned for the third and final part of our conversation.

Heather Payne is a parent and the CEO of Juno College, formerly HackerYou. Heather founded Ladies Learning Code in 2011, since re-branded to Canada Learning Code with offerings for all ages, and has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in the Trendsetters & Trailblazers category, as well as one of the Globe and Mail’s Top 12 Canadian “Innovators at Work”.

ABOUT MIXING BABIES AND BUSINESS™
I believe parenthood and professional development doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive.

As a social impact movement and community, I'm focused on producing parent-friendly professional development, digital resources and more inclusive and flexible work solutions for primary caregivers.

This podcast is the result of my journey over the past five years bringing my kids into business settings, hosting parent-friendly professional development events and during these times, it's my creative attempt to continue connecting you with industry leaders and guest experts who also happen to be parents.

Mini episodes are released on Tuesday and Friday covering all things entrepreneurship, flexible and remote work with kids.

Thanks for listening and sharing with your network of parents!
