Recording of the Program that took Place on Sunday, Jan. 31st, 2021
In this engaging hour-long presentation, Irwin Simon speaks openly and honestly about his family, growing up in the Jewish community in Glace Bay, attending Camp Kadimah, going to Saint Mary’s University, and how these experiences impacted his life as a serial entrepreneur.
Moderated by Halifax-native Eric Goldberg – with lots of shout-outs to Atlantic Canada and individual Maritimers – this program is certainly not one to be missed by our community!
