Guiellermo Salazar’s frustration with a garage door results in on-demand customer service for major utility companies

Guillermo Salazar is a Co-Founder of ICwhatUC, an industry-leading augmented reality virtual work platform that helps the mobile workforce execute remote work. He is a 20-year data & analytics professional and multiple-time founder. He began his career in consulting, left PWC to start his own ERP firm, and then sold Quatro Integration Group to Deloitte Consulting.

His entrepreneurial spirit meant starting another company of his own, and Salazar set about finding a solution to the frustration of dialing into a call centre, trying to communicate a problem and then waiting for days to get it fixed. Hence, ICwhatUC was born.

Salazar earned a finance degree from the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business. He is in his ninth year as a member of its management advisory committee and is past chair of the Haskayne Alumni Board.

Matt Diteljan, CEO of Glacier explains how influencer marketing works as a strategy to reach key younger demographics

An accomplished entrepreneur, Matt Diteljan is the CEO of Glacier, a Calgary-based marketing and advertising company that works with North American universities, colleges, and governments to reach Gen Z and Millennials. Matt and his company made headlines late last year when their influencer campaign with the University of Missouri caught the attention of the New York Times and other major outlets.

A University of Calgary grad, Matt founded Glacier in 2013. His company has grown beyond its humble Canadian roots, amassing an impressive client roster including big names such as Vancouver Film School, Texas A&M, Los Angeles Community College District and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Now a year into these trying times, Matt and his team have been working with their clients to implement influencer marketing as a strategy to reach key younger demographics. Despite the efforts of medical professionals, politicians and distinguished educators to communicate the importance of masks and washing hands, the message often falls on deaf ears. Now, vaccines own the headlines – how can governments and healthcare providers ensure accurate information reaches the right audiences and more importantly, positively influences behavior?
