Todd Lyons: From backpacker to businessman

Todd Lyons is one of those people who dreads the question "where are you from?" In his "medium-length" answer, he'll tell you he was born in New Orleans, USA, spent his early childhood in Scotland, but has lived in Vancouver for the past 20 years. Although he holds dual citizenship, he's always sure to clarify: "I consider myself Canadian."

Its full title is the International Management graduate diploma from Capilano University  and  Master of Science in International Business from the University of Hertfordshire).
