I’m proudly a member of the faculty and teach in the world-leading Entrepreneurship Department at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University.
I’m regularly called on to do keynotes or to speak to media and other groups regarding the cannabis industry, and small business or lean startup topics.
I regularly write about topics of interest to family business or small and medium sized business (SME) owners & managers, and on the Cannabis industry in general.
I help startups and more established businesses with issues around Startups and Strategy.
