looking to make wiser decisions faster,
you’re in the right place.

Collaborative Planning

I am an insightful and high energy collaborative strategist; a world class facilitator who has served as a trusted advisor to hundreds of mission-driven organizations in Canada and internationally for more than 20 years. I bring intellect, enthusiasm and varied experience in strategy development and collaborative leadership to my speaking, writing and mentoring. I am a skilled communicator, with a particular gift for helping leaders make wiser decisions faster.

I provide planning and governance support to CEOs and Boards of Directors; strategic analysis to social and health policy makers; multi-stakeholder consultation processes to governments; training in various collaborative skills to teams, and strategic coaching to leaders. Let me leverage my experience as a speaker and mentor for your team.
