Broadly Speaking Podcast - Thought Provoking

Broadly Speaking Podcast

Broadly Speaking is a leadership and management podcast where we go behind the scenes to find out what motivates, frustrates and intrigues the people who lead.

Each episode features an in-depth interview with a founder, chair, innovator, creator or C-suite executive as well as an Ask the Experts section to help you decide about your next career move. If you want to lead or are fascinated by those who do, check out the Broadly Speaking Podcast below, hosted by Margaret E. Ward.

Andreea Wade has never worked as a recruiter, but alongside her co-founder Adrian Mihai, she’s building a fast-growing start-up using artificial intelligence to shake up the recruitment industry.

Frustrated by the traditional recruitment process, both as candidates and hiring managers, Andreea and Adrian founded Opening, an automated platform that uses artificial intelligence, data science and algorithms to match candidates to jobs.

Since moving from Transylvania to Dublin over 15 years ago, Andreea has been a well-known personality on the Irish start-up scene, as a founder, mentor, speaker and lecturer. She’s worked in marketing, product management, music and more besides.
