Pecaut was a Torontonian through and through, playing a key role in its City Summit Alliance and many other community activities. This in addition to his work with his company, Boston Consulting Group.
Pecaut also delivered a keynote address for the MCC’s “Partners for Prosperity”, an event that highlighted the bridge between the economic needs of the business community and poverty relief.
Pecaut held a room of poverty advocates and business leaders alike in rapt attention as he explained the role luck played in all our lives and that we have both a duty and an interest to work to reduce poverty.
