Dawn Farrell, President and CEO of TransAlta
Dawn Farrell is President and CEO of TransAlta, the Calgary-based power company.
TransAlta started with a single hydro generating station more than a century ago. It now operates more than 70 power plants in Canada, the United States, and Australia.
Dawn is a fascinating, introspective leader who really speaks her mind – and that makes for one hell of an interview.
In this episode she opens up about her humble childhood, how she and her husband built their family through adoption, and why despite her success, she still considers herself a lousy leader. Dawn has strong opinions about Canada’s energy future, the ever-shifting regulatory environment, and what it will take for men and women to truly share the leadership podium in business.
