Manufacturing Obsession In Pursuit of Cumulative, Vertical, Organic Growth Terrence believes that in careers, like in war, marketing, politics and music, carpet bombing is out and targeted strikes are in. Traditional thinking dictates that you kept your options open, then chose. Today, you must choose in order to build options. This underexposed inverted pyramid is the foundation of an incredible new challenge facing Millenials, where being well-rounded and multi-talented is trumped by those obsessed with narrow paths. Terrence explores how to properly manufacture obsession.

You’ve got Millenials all wrong! Contrary to popular opinion, Millenials are not lazy, entitled, apathetic and unfocused, sucking the life out of the economy, our morals and our planet. They are the first generation to face a confusing post-globalisation, internet-based and choice-laden career marketplace, which has a whole new set of rules. While they are more educated than ever, hard-working and ambitious, they are never taught these ‘new rules’. Terrence lays out his myth-busting, counter-intuitive new rules.

Unpaid Internships. Discuss. The murky world of unpaid internships is a controversial hot topic. As an employer that has hosted over 500 internships, Terrence has very strong views on the line between beneficial, equitable and moral internships and internships designed to circumvent labour laws and take advantage of young people. Terrence stirs up the discussion and offers a way forward.

Summary Profile

As the owner and President of a thriving entertainment company Indie Pool, Gregg Terrence has established himself as one of Canada’s top music industry entrepreneurs. While the music industry has been in turmoil for the last decade, Terrence has bucked the trend through innovative solutions, creative team building and progressive management. Indie Pool has working relationships with over 12,000 independent Canadian recording artists providing them with many essential services. Terrence serves as President of the Canadian Independent Recording Artists’ Association (CIRAA), Canada’s only non-profit association dedicated exclusively to independent recording artists, currently serving over 10,000 members.  As an industry leader, Terrence is also the writer and producer of “The New Indie”, an audio series about the new realities facing the music industry, downloaded and streamed over 100,000 times by Canada’s musicians. While his career has been as an Arts Entrepreneur, the demand for Terrence as a speaker is as an expert in career development for Millennials. Through his passion for Human Resources and personal development, Terrence has transformed not only how he evaluates and hires new candidates, but is also identifying the common issues facing the masses of unemployed or underemployed or unhappily-employed. Terrence offers energetic, meaningful and motivational solutions to a generation that are largely educated and hard-working, yet overcome by choices, uncertain about their futures and unaware of the new career marketplace.
