‘Women with Drive’ Event Announces Distinguished Keynote Speaker


Angela Mondou, the acclaimed author and leader of Canada Company, will be the keynote speaker for the second annual Women with Drive summit on March 3 at the Crowne Plaza – Toronto Airport Hotel.

Canada Company is a national charitable organization helping members of the Canadian military make the transition to civilian careers, offering one of the potential solutions to the ever-intensifying shortage of drivers.


Mondou, a former Air Force captain, served for nine years as a logistics officer, with experience honed during military operations in former Yugoslavia (UNPROFOR) and Operation Desert Storm. After executing multimodal military moves in war zones, she later served logistics roles at Ryder Integrated Logistics and Nortel Networks.

With 18 years of experiences as a business executive and entrepreneur, she has offered business and strategic marketing skills to the technology and defence sectors across the globe. In her role as a marketing executive, Mondou helped launch the 7230 BlackBerry smartphone on the “Favourite Things” episode of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, and developed mainstream marketing programs with National Football League teams and ESPN. She is a director with the Canadian Forces Liaison Council, recipient of the United Nations Peacekeeping medal, and was even featured on a special-circulation quarter released by the Royal Canadian Mint.

As an added value, those attending the summit will receive a free copy of her book, Hit the Ground Leading! which draws on all her experience, offering military and business insights to team leaders.

“Angela Mondou’s experience in the Air Force and private sector provide real-life examples that add credibility to the insights and learnings in her book. Her dynamic approach is a welcome addition to the summit,” says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. “Her work with Canada Company is more important than ever. Members of the Canadian military who are exploring civilian career paths can offer a valuable resource for fleets that are looking for trained personnel.”
