The cavnessHR Podcast - A talk with Bobby McDonald - The cavnessHR podcast
Bobby is the Founder and CEO of Parlay Ideas. He was born and raised in Stouffville Ontario and is the middle of three boys. He comes from three generations of Irish, Scottish and Italian immigrants and entrepreneurs, most of whom came to Canada around the turn of the century. After finishing high school in Aurora Ontario, Bobby studied International Management at McGill University. While at school he spent time learning Mandarin and studying in China. Afterward he started a clothing line, worked in various roles at CI Financial, and finally as a Solutions Engineer
for an Enterprise Software company called Resolver. His current venture (and the reason he is here with us today) - Parlay - was born out of a frustration with the lack of engaging dialogue in the classroom, and a simple but powerful realization that the only way to build a better world is through meaningful conversation.
