My professional life has taken me across Canada, into the USA, Scotland, and New Zealand. I’m driven to help other people grow their capabilities for success and I truly enjoy direct company engagement.
Over my 25-year career, I’ve focused on enabling individuals and organisations to achieve their goals. Simply put, I’ve supported people with great ideas to create new economic opportunities, helped companies expand their horizons to engage new international customers, and mentored post-secondary students building whole-life skills for workplace success.
In return I’ve developed deep competencies to work strategically with companies at all life-cycle stages, including accelerated company growth, investor and market readiness, stakeholder relationships, and international business development.
Here are my professional metrics demonstrating aligned capability with The Acceleration Foundry’s purpose of supporting ambitious, high-growth companies through critical stages of development. These are the areas I’m passionate about delivering impact in business:
EXPERIENCED ENTREPRENEUR / 4 COMPANIES
HIGH-GROWTH COMPANY SUPPORT / 13 YEARS
EARLY-STAGE COMPANY INVESTOR MARKET / 6 YEARS
ACADEMIC ENTREPRENEURSHIP / 11 YEARS
INTERNATIONAL TRADE / 15 YEARS
I’m delighted to meet with you to learn about your business growth challenges and alignment for joining The Acceleration Foundry
