I am an enthusiastic businessman, a father of two accomplished daughters and a staunch fifth-generation Winnipegger who has travelled the world.
I am passionate about making businesses grow, and I conduct myself with the same convictions of honour and good sense that were hallmarks of my Winnipeg-based ancestors.
I have founded several technology and bioscience companies and was a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, at which I received an award from former US President Bill Clinton for my work helping developing nations become more developed through the completion of online courses.
When I lived in Vancouver, I was chosen “Marketer of the Year” by the BC Technology Industry Association.
As hobbies, I long-distance swim, mentor entrepreneurs and business students, and study English linguistics.See About Page
BOARD OF DIRECTOR SEATS
My solutions are not limited to standard management consulting and operations leadership. I deliver an array of services for anyone looking for a business boost
and the implementation of methods that lead to long-lasting developments with profitable results.
Reexamining strategies to reflect new leadership, market changes or poor performance. Rallying staff behind a new, clear purpose and direction that results in a crisp, clear and practical direction.
Creating IT strategies that provide companies with the understanding and confidence to back their IT investments. Knowing that all IT strategies are unique, it is better to customize a strategy than to simply follow a generic path or methodology.
Applying a clear, well-articulated vision when working with a committed leadership team and an organization willing to make changes. Assisting organizations advance from ambitions to the realization of their goals.
Developing comprehensive customer and market insights that identify new opportunities for growth. Understanding which sales and marketing initiatives are working and which fall flat.
Validating how strong brands can drive growth. Evaluating and strengthening brand performance by understanding the key factors that drive consumer purchasing behaviours, then identifying growth potential through new channels.
Expertise in market analysis, concept design and business case development, and identifying where and how exiting products need to be repositioned. Working with clients to reduce development time and costs to create products that drive long-term growth and profitability.
Understanding of how market forces and competitive dynamics affect pricing decisions and recognizing that pricing flexibility has a powerful impact on the bottom line by gaining market share and reducing costs..
