Business journalist and author Paul Brent has spent the past two decades covering public companies, the markets and personal finance topics. He had a ringside seat for the Molson-Labatt beer wars, was flown around the world to drink some of the world's great beers, and witnessed the decline and fall of America's automakers up close and personal. A former reporter and columnist with the Financial Post, Bloomberg News and the National Post, he writes for many fine print organizations today. As a media trainer, he also advises executives on what to say, and more importantly, what not to say in media interviews. He lives in Toronto with his beautiful and brilliant wife, a budding ballerina and his family's third flatcoat retriever.
