We have a rare treat for you on this show. We'll explore leadership in the fast lane and on a world scale. Today we're taking on motorsports racing, rising above your education, avoiding being thrown overboard on oil tankers, meeting world leaders and feeling the inspiration of leaders like Nelson Mandela. Are you intriqued? Then join me as we talk with Alex Robertson.

Born in Edinburgh the Capitol of Scotland. Educated there.  My first real job was as a cadet officer (deck) on Shell Tankers. I sailed half the way around the world before I was 17.  I have lived as an adult in Five Continents: In Scotland, Holland, South Africa (pre and post-Apartheid), Namibia, Swaziland, Australia, People’s Republic of China and now USA.

 I managed the development of the world’s first digital set-top-box (STB) that went into the international markets; the first professional video over internet protocol (IP) edge gateway – which is used in nearly all sports stadiums in the US and Canada today to carry the TV signal out of the stadiums.

I used to fly physically around the world every eight to twelve weeks for almost ten years.  I have met and done business directly with many Prime Ministers and leading world industrialists.  I am CEO of my third successful business and love helping start-up and middle size companies (business turn-around).

I have played top level rugby in Scotland and South Africa.  I played my last game at 48 in France.  I have raced cars professionally in Scotland, England, Europe, South Africa and in NASCAR in the USA.  I love wine, art, nature and beautiful ladies! 


Leadership comes from many sources and angles. Grassroot movements based on passion is one of those sources. Today we talk about grassroots organizing for scientists with Mary Canady.

Mary Canady, Ph.D., is the founder of Comprendia, a firm specializing in helping biotechnology and life science companies grow through the creation, commercialization, and communication of value. Dr. Canady was a research scientist for ten years and worked for eight years in biotechnology marketing and business development at Life Technologies, EMD Millipore, and startup companies. In 2008, she founded Comprendia, leveraging social media to build an extensive network of 20,000 life science and biotechnology professionals. Comprendia relies on this social media expertise in working with more than 15 life science companies to help them engage with their customers, strengthen their online brand, and ultimately to thrive in the new media economy.

We don’t often think of sales as a place of leadership except just many money. Today will talk with Joe Petrone about real leadership to change the world for the better and doing through sales.

Interview bio/story
International commercial leader with a track record of transformational success over 20+ years working across various industries.

My brand is focused on making my place of work simply the best place to work – and for our customers to see our organization as best- in- class in our industry.

I passionately believe that people are the key to extraordinary success.

Every day, I seek to create a learning and collaborative environment where new business development and key customer cultivation is innovative with a focus on advancing our customer’s vision, mission and business results. My teams’ often comment on their great learning experiences, which makes for satisfying and fulfilling jobs, attracting top talent leading to retaining our key customers.

While I am in a player/coach role today and deliver extraordinary results, I find great reward in inspiring my team to contribute beyond their boundaries. I believe in unleashing the power of people - both in my organization and my customer’s organization.

Anything not founded on personal and team accountability is doomed to failure, and with this ethos, I thrive for a consistency in leadership principles and values from those around me.

I do best in the most challenging environments –be it economically, revitalization of a team or simply finding a way to accelerate results in the shortest and most ethical path possible. As I have mentioned to my teams, adversity will come. It is not the size of the gap that matters rather courage, determination and wise persistence to reach one’s goal.
