An Interview with An Irish Heart Author Sharon Doyle Driedger
Canadian History Ehx
Today, a special episode of the podcast. At Christmas, my wife bought me the excellent book An Irish Heart by Sharon Doyle Driedger, which chronicles the community of Griffintown in Montreal. It is an excellent book you can find at most book stores, as well as on Amazon. It was a pleasure to sit down and speak with her about the book.

40. Sharon Doyle returns to open the M&A Dealmaker series
She’s back this season to talk to me about the highs and lows of the M&A world; from identifying the rush of deal fever, to fighting through deal fatigue; maintaining standards while getting deals over the line; the precarious nature of international transactions and much more. It won’t take you long to see why Sharon is so successful in her field. It’s hard to believe how much you can cover in just 13 minutes. Thanks again to Sharon for giving up her time and sharing her infinite wisdom. It’s always a pleasure.

14. Sharon Doyle on the life of an M&A deal maker and playing to your career strengths
Sharon is a lawyer turned deal maker and now MD of InterFinancial. Whereas some of my guests are only too willing to jump down the microphone with their story, Sharon was a reluctant guest at first. As we discover, the reason for this is that Sharon is a very humble person looking to sing other’s praises before her own. Sharon has had a wonderful journey finding her niche in mid market M&A, private equity investment and funds management. Sharon provides us with a genuine insight into career paths and how learning your strengths and following a career that plays to those strengths can be extremely rewarding and beneficial. In this episode we discuss: Sharon’s life as a single mum and lawyer at the age of 24; Her career progression and transition; and Her thoughts on social enterprises and her experience wither Foresters Community Finance. InterFinancial has become a hugely successful company not just in its market and for its size, and seems very comfortable in its own skin with Sharon at the helm. Thank you Sharon for taking the plunge and coming on Executive Stories and giving us all a glimpse into the woman behind the MD of InterFinancial.
During the Great Famine of the 1840s, thousands of impoverished Irish immigrants, escaping from the potato crop failure, fled to Canada on what came to be known as “fever ships.” As the desperate arrivals landed at Quebec City or nearby Grosse Isle, families were often torn apart. Parents died of typhus and children were put up for adoption, while lucky survivors travelled on to other destinations. Many people made their way up the St. Lawrence to Montreal, where 6,000 more died in appalling conditions.Despite these terrible beginnings, a thriving Irish settlement called Griffintown was born and endured in Montreal for over a century
