Collisions YYC

In today’s episode, host Tyler Chisholm is joined by Sean Stinson, President and Chief Growth Officer at Blackline Safety. Sean explores the pivotal role of curiosity and openness in driving personal and professional growth and shares his invaluable insights on the importance of embracing a diversity of thoughts, much like how genetic diversity ensures a species' survival. He also emphasizes the critical need for leaders to immerse themselves in a wealth of information, balancing tactical awareness of the present and strategic planning for the future. We'll discuss the early days of selling cloud solutions, overcoming objections centred on privacy concerns, and the journey of scaling BlackLine from a $2 million venture to a global powerhouse with a workforce of over 500 employees across 40 countries.
