TEC Canada CEO and Small Business Chair
“The secret to life and success is the golden rule: ‘do unto others as you would have done to you.’ It’s pretty simple but can have a huge impact if everyone were to embrace it.”
Peak performance is nothing new to Todd Millar, President of TEC Canada. As a leader, TEC Canada Chair and motivational speaker, Todd challenges professionals to take their careers and personal lives to the next level.
Todd’s passion for business and adventure are captured in his book Boardroom to Base Camp, which features both the lessons he has learned around the boardroom table, as well as his experiences in a once-in-a-lifetime trek to Mount Everest Base Camp in 2011.
The trip inspired Todd’s coined “Everest Model,” a leadership program designed to look at “life from the top.”
Todd’s impressive 25-year career as an executive includes a track record of success. He was instrumental in one of the most successful private equity transactions in the history of Bain Capital, acquiring Canadian Yellow Pages for $1.9 billion and in less than a year, selling the assets for $2.6 billion. It is an incredible accomplishment that reflects his ability to assemble the right team, provide inspirational leadership and create a rewarding environment.
After his first year as TEC Chair, Todd was recognized as TEC Canada’s Rookie of the Year, a prestigious honour acknowledging his dedication to the growth and success of his group.
He says, “We have varying demographics and members from differing industries – the dynamic works so well because we recognize the importance of individual core competencies and how that contributes to our group strength.”
