Collaborations

I play a few roles: advisor, facilitator, researcher, and content writer, or a mix of all of the above. On this page are some examples of my recent collaborations. I’d be happy to share more specifics in a conversation. Click here to get in touch.

I work with John Elkington's team at Volans, which serves as a market catalyst creating the conditions for business to embrace the challenges and opportunities of the 2020’s.
Recent work includes co-authoring (along with John Elkington and Jacqueline Lim) 
Volan’s 
Breakthrough Business Model report.
I conduct my own independent advisoty work, although these always amount to collaborative efforts, too. For example, I facilitated a multi-day session with forestry stakeholders from 14 countries, in São Paulo, Brazil on behalf of Ibá, the Brazilian forest industry association. 
During 2018 I was a member of Fibria's Sustainability Advisory Committee, a group of diverse Brazilian and international stakeholders who report to the Chairman of the Board. The committee met four times in 2018 to advise the senior executives on matters of material importance to the company, as well as to share diverse ideas.
My first role in the corporate responsibility field — from 2004-2008 — was at Canadian Business for Social Responsibility, where I held a range of management roles. I currently sit on the organization’s Board and marvel at ED Leor Rotchild’s ability to shape a relevant agenda for the very dynamic needs of the Canadian business community.
I lead client projects for BuzzWord, a leading strategy consultancy specializing in transparency and reporting. I first collaborated with Buzzword in 2011 and I continue to enjoy contributing to projects in Financial Services, Technology, Media and more, steered by company President and pioneering business woman, Leah Haygood.
I am an Expert Council Member for the pioneering open source performance management platform, the Future-Fit Business Benchmark, and have been a cheerleader of — and thought partner in — the benchmark’s development since it was a twinkle in co-founder Geoff Kendall’s eye.
