Why

I am helping great companies transform into better versions of themselves

I guide organizations through a value creation process that unearths new opportunities and develops capabilities to support sustainable enterprise growth. I don’t believe there is a blueprint for an organization. It takes a rich imagination to envision what could be. Every enterprise is unique, and it is vital to understand the dreams and capabilities that drive success. Design thinking is at the heart of how I operate, and every engagement is co-created with your needs in mind.

Who

I play with giants, unicorns, and sharks

I work with all companies in shapes and sizes, from leadership development, nature and biomimicry education to tamper-proof medical credentials and digital marketing. An expert at uncovering the next big idea that aligns with your capabilities and vision ahead. We are system-thinkers, innovators, managers, and leaders

What

I seek to work with organizations who share our values

I learn every day and aspire to create intelligent, adaptable, and empathetic products + cultures. Operating as a designer, ensuring the customer is at the centre of everything. As an innovator, ensuring diversity, perspectives drive big ideas, and as an operator, ensuring everything aligns and scales with your organization. This helps us both be successful.

How

Build a cycle of Strategic Innovation & Capabilities Development

Organizational transformation is a process of strategic innovation and capabilities development. Sustainable enterprises invest in building this virtuous cycle of innovation within their organization. I seek to immerse you in a different way of thinking, providing you with the tools and foundation to build this cycle of strategy + capability development. The goal is to help you identify and build value in as little as six weeks.

Skills

Innovation occurs under the right conditions

It is difficult to experience what is just beyond our knowing until we create the conditions for that awareness and learning to be cultivated—observing the peripheral, recognizing the novelty of a moment and connecting the dots before they fade from the frame completely. Innovation does not occur overnight. It is a set of capabilities that are developed over time under the right conditions. I will work with your teams to improve their comfort with ambiguity, decision making, system-thinking, and adaptable learning.
