Top Chef All Star Trevor Bird on Self-Awareness and Business Leadership

In this episode of the thinkspace podcast, we sit down with globally acclaimed chef, Trevor Bird. Known to most Vancouverites as the award-winning head chef and owner of the popular Vancouver restaurant, Fable Kitchen. Trevor also boasts an impressive number of titles under his chef’s apron as two-time Top Chef Canada finalist and Top Chef Canada All Stars. His most recent venture is MeatMe, a sustainably-raised meat delivery service servicing the province of British Columbia. You’ll learn that Trevor is much more than a successful business owner and world-class chef -- he is a man that has visited the depths of his own ego, worked through the mud, and has taken the time to heal and lead himself to a better future.
