Igloo is a leading provider of digital workplace solutions, helping companies build inspiring digital destinations for a more productive and engaged workforce. Offering a suite of modern features and solutions for today’s evolving workplace, Igloo partners with customers to address challenges related to communication, collaboration, knowledge management, culture and engagement.

In addition, Igloo offers the ability to integrate with leading enterprise and cloud apps like Office 365, Google Drive, Salesforce, Zendesk, Dropbox, and Slack. The company has also helped clients (some of which are completely remote) like Hulu, Leidos and Heifer International (90% remote) move beyond traditional intranets to all-encompassing digital workplaces that improve communication, knowledge sharing, collaboration, and culture.

Igloo was named to Deloitte’s 2015 Fast 50 and Fast 500 – recognized as one of the fastest-growing public and private technology companies in Canada, and North America respectively. Igloo is a SaaS company that doesn't just provide the technology, but solutions and support to solve unique business challenges. These are just a few reasons why I invited Mike Hicks onto my daily tech podcast.

Mike Hicks brings 20 years of experience to Igloo and leads all marketing efforts, including responsibility for bringing new products and services to market. Mike is a recognized leader in global enterprise software marketing and his career includes senior roles at integrated communications agencies and global enterprise software companies.

Prior to joining Igloo, Mike led enterprise marketing and global demand generation for the software portfolio at BlackBerry through their shift to being a software-driven company. We talk about Mike's road to success and also cover the following topics.
