STRATEGY + DESIGN + PEOPLE

Are you trying to accelerate innovation or get more out of your people?

I have a wide range of experience in corporate and small businesses, both public and private, as well as a ton of startup experience. There’s not much I haven’t seen!

I am a big fan of consultants who enable their clients. I believe it’s better to teach a person to catch fish than to give them one. My usual approach is highly collaborative. Having a wide variety of experience gives me a huge toolbox and while I take on projects under the Design Thinking, People Strategy, Strategic Planning and other banners, it’s the ability to simultaneously understand, integrate and leverage many disciplines and industries that makes me truly unique.

You’ll only get practical, no-nonsense, advice based on decades of diverse experience mixed with a part-time career in academia at the world-renowned Entrepreneurship at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management.
