About GradusOne

GradusOne is the brainchild of Sam Thiara and Manny Padda.

Having mentored hundreds of young people in their life and career, Sam Thiara found the same reoccurring questions and concerns from students and recent graduates…what is next? GradusOne is what has emerged from his journey with this audience. A place where we can support the journey but not be the journey. It is about being the enabler. Gradus is Latin for step and together with GradusOne, we are the first step to their success.

Manny Padda is an inspiring entrepreneur, educator, and philanthropist in the Vancouver community. He has taught at Simon Fraser University in the areas of Strategy and Human Resources and has presented on topics including career advancement, managing relationships, and business development.
