In this epic conversation we hosted CBC Dragon, Vincenzo Guzzo. Right from the start, this “mega-boss” gets real about his early life, family experiences, relationship with his father, and the only thing he ever wanted for Christmas growing up.

This episode takes dads on an inside look through the Guzzo family story and how Vincenzo has created strong bonds through the ups and downs of building the family enterprise. He is open, candid, and very real about the parts of life that created some difficult moments but also enabled success. He shares stories about the relationship with his father, how divorce was a catalyst for him to be a better father, helping his kids learn important lessons, navigating the guilt of being a working parent, and so much more.

The energy, clarity, humour, honesty and passion he brings to this conversation makes it clear that he takes fatherhood as seriously as his business pursuits.

In This Conversation, You’ll Discover:

    • Important Guzzo family principles that he instills in his kids
    • Little known facts about the pain he experienced as a child
    • The renewed relationship with his father and how other Dragon’s helped him get there
