Charter Announces Its Latest Podcast – What's Up in Toronto

Three senior Charter team members, with decades of experience, share their multi-industry perspectives on current business issues, hot-technology topics, and the service-provider market in Toronto.

VICTORIA, BC - March 6th, 2024 — Charter Telecom, an award-winning technology solutions integrator established in 1997 in Victoria, BC, Canada, announced today the release of the latest edition in its regular Charter Engage: Know IT podcast series, called “What’s Up in Toronto.” It’s a compelling listen for any organization or businessperson interested in the Toronto, ON region and its growth.

This roundtable discussion occurs against the backdrop of the current political and business state in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), specifically, where CEOs are cautious about the economy due to challenging business conditions and slower indications for recovery. The team candidly explores what customers are saying, offers observations about the marketplace, and explores the latest technology hot topics.

Our featured presenters include three local team members: Kenneth Bokor, Senior Account Manager; Jeff Wilson, General Manager (East) ; and Allan Wong, Director, Business Development interviewed by the Director - Energy, Resources & Industrial Markets for Charter, Mark George, as they discuss real-life customer scenarios and offer practical advice on technological advances in the Toronto area.

To truly take advantage of Chat GPT and AI is not just to jump on Chat GPT and ask a bunch of questions, and pat yourself on the back, and say, “Yeah, I just used AI today.” The true key question, the true power of AI, is really the data. So, if your data inside your organization is not ready, it doesn't matter how good the AI is, they won’t get anything out of it.

So, when we get involved, as an organization, we start at the root. “What can we do with your data? How can we help you organize your data?” We make sure that you have one source of truth. From there, we build things on top of that. We have tools from the Microsoft world all the way to the open-source world. We build applications around it to tie everything together so that at the helm, as a company, you have direct insight into what you didn't have before - deep insights into your data. - Allan Wong, Director, Business Development

Listeners are welcome to explore with Charter, to learn about the latest technologies available and how they can help them become more forward-thinking and effective at work.

Our team of experts is available for consultations about this topic and discussions about how we can assist companies in the Toronto area to thrive.

Charter's belief in the integration of people, processes, and technology provides real value in transforming businesses while delivering on corporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives.
