CTP Ep. 146 - Billal Qureshi

Ep. 146

Today on CTP we have Billal Qureshi, the Head of Mobile + Apps at Google Canada. We had a great conversation about how the pandemic has affected Canadian businesses, what tools small businesses can use to get in touch with customers and increase business, and what small business owners should keep an eye out for next. Billal's answer on that last one surprised me, it might surprise you too.
