EP284 Ruling the Boardroom with Daniela Tixi
Daniela Tixi is the founder and CEO of Strategic HR Asset and the President of the Toronto chapter of the M&A Club of Canada. Her business offers human resources solutions and business advisory to prepare businesses for long-term success. She is a master of company culture and inspires employees to live the mission and vision of the brand using a business-first, human resources-second philosophy in her work.

Today, Daniela shares lessons she has learned from her experiences of running a business internationally and insight into the art of the deal. She emphasizes why it is important to make human resources decisions from a business standpoint first and explains how much of her HR work mirrors the process of mergers and acquisitions. She also shares the strategies she used to get HR representation at the decision-making table.


“If HR can focus on building a compelling place to work, they will be building a compelling place to shop, get a service from, whatever that company offers – which in turn, is going to be a compelling place to invest.” – Daniela Tixi
