As an MBA, I’ve enjoyed assisting executives and entrepreneurs solve their business and technical challenges throughout my career. In 2013, I became a CMC and have advised over 1200 firms at the executive and operational levels ranging in size from Fortune 500 to start-up operations in the areas of technology creation, commercialization, adoption and innovation capacity building.
I love providing valuable business and technological advice to intelligent clients. I also enjoy the variety of engagements and the flexibility of managing my own projects and timelines. I love learning from my clients as I provide valuable insights to drive profit optimization.
I would like more security in the deal flow. I spend a lot of time on business development and would prefer to spend more time with my clients. I experience frustration with clients that miss meetings or don’t get their assigned work done within an agreed upon time frame. Smart work drives results.
While I was working for the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), I developed technology consulting solutions to increase profitability within our client base. I was able to have a national impact as my strategic advice was implemented. Now I enjoy engagements in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity.
Vision and the belief that I have the skills and abilities to accomplish the goals that I set for my clients and myself.
The book I would bring would be titled “The Survival Guide for Dummies.” Assuming that a lighter is not considered a luxury item, my luxury item would be a blender for making smoothies – also assuming fruit and vegetables are grown plentifully on the island. If not, a pot for cooking and purifying water.
