Episode #106: Premier Unplugged: A Conversation with The Honourable Danielle Smith, Premier of Alberta

Have you ever thought about what life is really like as an elected leader? As public officials, often little is known about what drives them, motivates them, or even keeps them up at night.

On a special episode of C-Suite Unplugged, The Honourable Danielle Smith, the 19th Premier of Alberta joins host Adam Legge for an unplugged and fresh conversation on her career both inside and outside public office.
