Video: Participant Spotlight Featuring Bernie Warren from Team TRU

Bernie WarrenDean catches up with Bernie Warren for this Team TRU participant spotlight on the third floor of the International Building at TRU World on the Thompson Rivers University campus.

From welding to the forestry sector to Earnst and Young’s Accounting Computer Consulting Group to cutting his teeth on Bay Street in Toronto Bernie has definitely earned the right to teach the business leaders of tomorrow at TRU’s School of Business. Bernie loves the Kamloops area and jumped at the chance to teach business here over 20 years ago. Today there are not many people who can boast about still being in the same job after 20 years but Kamloops should be proud that Bernie can. Bernie teaches operations management and computer related courses in the business degree program at Thompson Rivers University.

Bernie shares a little about the whole Race To A Million contest and how it’s working for the students. He says social media and connections play a significant roll.

Bernie also talks about the International Business Plan competitions in memory of Tony Brower held last year with participation from all over North America… first place went to TRU students and second place went to a lady for starting a special daycare in New York City… Bernie says that Race To A Million has helped garner some tremendous interest and support from the Kauffman Foundation for the TRU school of business and the International Business Plan competition.

Bernie thinks it’s going to take something BIG and QUICK that leverages technology somehow to succeed in the Race but beyond the race he sees a lot of future success and new challenges coming out of this exciting show.

Privacy, secrecy and protecting intellectual property is a very big challenge with entrepreneurs but Bernie thinks this “Old School” way of thinking is on the way out. Instead, he says the new economy is about sharing ideas and global participation. Don’t hold on to your ideas too tightly; ideas have to be shared so that we can all build on them.

Please Note:

Don’t forget if you’ve missed the full half hour shows of the Race To A Million on Shaw TV or if you don’t get them in your area you can watch them in high definition from the full-shows page of the Race To A Million website: to watch the full shows click here.
