Even when a Canadian cheats the system, they do it in a way that benefits society. ~ Allison Hunt~
I often reflect on the differences and similarities between Canada and Panama. One of the similarities between the two countries is health care. There is socialized medicine in both, although it seems that there is more availability of private care in Panama than in Canada. Both countries are in dire need of more facilities and doctors. Yet in both the current medical communities aren’t overly enthusiastic about admitting foreign doctors to make up the short fall. This lack of qualified professionals often results in long wait times unless one digs deep into their own pocket and pays for non critical care themselves.
This week’s video is presented by Allison Hunt. Ms. Hunt runs HATCH Research Intelligence in Toronto, managing marketing, communications and strategy development for clients like Kellogg’s, Pfizer and Unilever. In her TED Talk she explains how she used her marketing skills. It’s a tale of philanthropy with benefits, in a typically Canadian way.
