IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Salt Lake 2002 Retrospective
Episode 92 - Pauline Ploquin
Pauline Ploquin, President and Partner at Struck, joins the Salt Lake 2002 Retrospective podcast and remembers there is no "I" in team (except there is in French), banging her head on a desk and a great turn of phrase from Libby Hyland (recorded 2 March 2021).
